Crapometer Questions

Don't put them in the comment trail.
Email me.
I'll prepare an FAQ before the CoM goes live.

You can send more than one entry but you have to use different email addresses.
Email addresses are how I track entries.
Witty ones are always appreciated.

Witty ones what? Email addresses, manuscripts, proposals from George?

Chumplet said...

Witty email addresses. I only have two, and they're both boring.

I believe witty refers to the word "entries".

Miss Snark,
I heard about you on another site.
Wondering if I could get your critique on my short story.

Please email me, I'm not a blogger.
Snaab95@gmail.com

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, and while you're handing them out, I'd like an in-line critique of my 501,286 word novella. Email me at imanitwit@sol.com

2nd anon,

That's not how this works. Read the FAQ, the blog, and the post titled "Crapometer Announcement". The only way she'll read your stuff is if you enter the Crapometer...and agents don't handle short stories. You'd be better off finding a critique group.

I think she meant witty email addresses.

Sam said...

Here's a good place for short story critiques:
www.critters.org

another excellent resource for short story writers is www.zoetrope studios

For both places you will get back what you put into it.

with an email address of 'snaab' this can't have been serious. Or maybe we should all email snaab95@gmail.com and say hello?

In either case, this calls for Miss Snark's clue gun.

Bunneh said...

Writtenwyrdd: You know, the first time I read your comment, I thought you said, "this calls for Miss Snark's clue gin."

In either case, I agree -- if Snaab isn't a joke he/she is the King/Queen of Nitwitville.

This has nothing to do with witty. I don't do witty. But every time I read the word crapometer, I giggle. Well, not really giggle, more like smile. Nah, not smile either because nothing on my face moves. It's just a little, I don't know, kind of like how you feel when you tickle your dog on her magic spot and she does that scratch-her-ear-to-beat-the-band thing.

And how is crapometer pronounced --crap-AH-miter or crap-OH-meter? I like crap-OH-meter. It sounds more crappy.

miss snark totally meant to associate the adjective "witty" with the noun "e-mail." otherwise, she would have introduced a whole other noun to take the place of the prior noun.

miss snark always writes her words in the most purposeful of ways.

Maybe snaab is fishing for addresses to spam.

Just a little techno-geek observation: Most of us in the trenches say it's a FAQ instead of spelling it out. We're lazy that way.

Heh, be glad it's not FA-QUE. It could have been, yanno.

Manic Mom said...

Definitely CRAP-OH-METER. I never considered it an AH.

Tomato tomah-toe.

HawkOwl said...

Bonnie: I say CRAP-a-meter.

Sue said...

Hmm, Miss Snark should have gone with the "Are you a nitwit?" quiz.

(Just kidding, her idea is brilliant ... and generous ... and it seems nitwits abound.)

Now to get through the convoluted verification word. Wish they wouldn't use cursive.

Inez said...

ohmy
the CRAP o meter is definitely going to weed snaab out.
I wondered briefly if it was Crap OHM eter, having a british subject as a husband

Bonnie Shimko said...

Yeah, hawkowl, I meant to put the em-PHA-sis on the first syl-LA-ble. I say it the way you do.

Bernita said...

Crap-a-meter makes me think of a really, really long intestine.

Dear Miss Snark,
Please drop everything you're doing and read my stuff.
Thanks!
P.S. And, while you're at it, wash my car, and trim my grass. Grazie, ciao.
