Dear Miss Snark (soon to be Clooney),
I stumbled upon a message board earlier today where the Crapometer was being discussed, and the comments there were mixed. Some writers felt it was beneath them to submit to any kind of critique group once they secured an agent. Their mentality was that they don't need to get better, they're good enough already. Others thought it would be disrespectful of their agent to send even 500 words to another agent for critique, for any reason.
Personally, I think the concept of the Crapometer is The Shit, but I can sort of see their side of things, too. So I'm curious: As an agent, how would you feel if you ran across one of your clients in the Crapometer submission pile?
Generally speaking I'd laugh raucously and remove it from consideration. Those guys get my comments at another time and place.
Anyone who doesn't want to be in the Crapometer shouldn't enter. You don't even have to come up with a chucklehead excuse like "I'm good enough already". Just don't send pages. I promise not to send the Poodle Fetch n Kvetch Ninja team to your house or place of business to harrass you. They're busy enough with client work as it is.
