Evil Evil Evil

He's not only Evil himself, he instigates evility in others.

which may explain why we love him so much.

Evility is my new favorite word!

Wow. A very important Literary Landmark has just been posted here by our good EE: Miss Snark the glamorous literary agent, appears here as a unique literary creation in her own right, an identifiable fictitous character on a par (I daresay) with Sherlock Holmes, James Bond or Miss Marple. We know them all in a moment, they have infinite lives, but they're all creatures of the printed page and an author's imagination. (Sherlock Holmes, as you probably know, still gets letters addressed to him at 221B Baker Street, an address that never existed either.)

Brava, Miss S: you, your gin pail and pink-tammed poodle all! Now, when may we see you next as "Miss Snark, Literary Adventuress...?" Too tempting.

Cheers,
-Just Me

Well, get your pen out and wield it as a weapon. It only takes 300 words and an e-mail to skewer our dear Evil Editor.

Since our beloved Miss S is now a literary character, I propose we assign her the one belonging every woman longs to possess:

A First Name.

What say, faithful minions? Amanda? Muffy? Annabelle? LaShaunda? Honoria? Bambi?

Strike that last. Bambi Snark just isn't sufficiently euphonious.

The Termagant Tribe now opens the floor to nominations.

Miss Snark's given name is Miss.
Assertions to the contrary will be met with evility.

"Handsome" and "In Stilettos"??? Was that Miss Snark or Pastor Ted Haggard?

Talia Mana, Centre for Emotional Well-Being said...

"Miss" Snark. Short for mystery?

But oh I love Bambi Snark hehe. And I thought it was a wonderfully written wee story by EE's minion

BuffySquirrel said...

So, that's Miss Miss Snark? Well, okay.

Yesirree - getcher red hot query letter reworked by an actual editor! Ladies and gentlemen, become a minion! Get free advice from a professional in the industry!

Translation: Anyone who is discovering Evil Editor for the first time, it looks like he could use some new submissions. Follow his links on the sidebar to find out how.

EE will post your original query letter with (er...somewhat snarkastic) commentary, and then (if he finds enough to salvage), he'll post an improved version.

It's an excellent way to buff up your query letter prior to submitting it to agents/editors.

You MUST read "New Beginning 131", posted here:

About 3 entries down. I laughed outloud for five minutes straight.

Everyone, her real name's LaShaunda, she just won't admit it.

Dear Mrs. LaShaunda Snark,

My fiction novel totalling 600,000 words...

McKoala said...

Evil is as Evil does. Evility comes naturally. Great word.

Further to Whitemouse's little marketing effort, send in your openings too, we love to 'help' with interesting continuations - taking your story where no man or woman has taken it before! Some actual genuine critique is included as part of the package!

LadyBronco said...

ACK! I would faint if I had to read 600,000 words. Now if it was a biography on Mr Clooney, perhaps I could be persuaded to reconsider.
And what's with LaShaunda? I thought she went with a Spice Girl kind of name. Last I heard, Miss Snark was answering to Spicy Snark.
Hmmm....

If Miss Snark doesn't put up a blog "The Adventures of Miss Snark" for a round-robin adventure series, some other enterprising Snarkling just might. Heh.

Miss Snark, how do you feel about fan fiction?

Cynthia Bronco said...

I see a potential anthology of Snark Fiction... could we dare to dream?

Miss Snark said...

Fan fic?
oh dear dog.

I fear for the well being of the universe should such a thing come to pass.

Mr. Darcy seems to have done quite well without a first name.

Susan said...

Mr. D's first name was Fitzwilliam, a family name. I do not know what Elizabeth called him in their private, intimate moments.

Termagant 2 said...

Mr. D had a first name, as noted above. We have no proof of what Lizzie called him in private. Possibly Fitzy-Poo for short.

And what's wrong with LaShaunda?

Dear Miss Snark,

thank you for pointing out the obvious: that no woman ever longs for the same thing. Not in literature. Not in life. I tip my scotch bottle to your bucket. Long live GC.

Best,
Mrs. Rockwell

Tattieheid said...

She still called him Mr Darcy, we Brits had too many jokes about Fitzwilliam, even in those days.

"Miss Snark's Literary Adventures", sounds like a brilliant idea for a Blog. Imagine the fun and the learning opportunities. Mind you Miss Snark might need a second gin pail.:)

Ken Boy said...

Geeze-w-weeze, how did Mr. Darcy end up here?

And unless I miss my guess, Miss Snark always was a literary character.
