Crapometer Update

Thanks to Killer Yapp's voice recognition software, everyone now should have a number.
If you do NOT have a number, you MUST email me and let me know.

some of you failed to put "ok to post on blog" in the email. I let the ones slide that were in the subject line but I swear to dog when you're doing 700 emails
following the damn directions is better than "thank you>

A couple of you failed to send more than one from different email addresses. Deleted also.

There are no appeals from the Trash can.
I have almost 700 of these to go through.

Let's just hope I live long enough.

This is going to take a LOT longer than I thought so plan accordingly.

We WILL get to pages. If I've asked you for pages, send them. I have them in a special folder.

If you've sent other emails, I'll respond, but later.

Now, back to the Crapstravaganza..aka Miss Snark's "What I did on my Christmas vacation".

I have a number. It is a big number.

I am practicing being patient. I will get very good at it or else I will explode.

I thank you for taking the time to do all this for us.

700 emails? OMG!

I hope your liver holds out.

For some reason, KY's email went into my Yahoo bulk folder, in case that helps others who might be searching for their number.

Miss Snark, if I knew who you were I'd probably send you at least a bottle of gin. Assuming you even drink gin, and that isn't a red herring. Or I could send you a herring, red or otherwise.

But anyway, thanks for all you do for writers, even those bristling with electrodes.

700 emails is just too many emails. Eff it. Turn off the computer and have a drink.

Get laid, if possible.

Watch bad television. Eat some popcorn.

Poor Mis Snark, Magnificent Miss Snark. Take a DEEP breath, pour a VERY dry triple martini and go listen to some nice music. Your loyal snarkies will wait for your refreshed presence. Prehaps the next time you open yourself to such torture, you should make the time frame shorter? Did anyone alert the various ISP's of what was creating web-overload?
Okay, drain the glass, have another. Repeat.
We'll wait.

hate to tell ya, but you'll probably end up needing glasses, or if you wear them now, changing to coke lenses.

It really is appreciated by the Snarklings and such...
thanks,

and Merry Xmas...

You might feel like this is a terrible nightmare and wished you'd wake up. It will be over soon.

I feel you. Cyber drinks sent to you and yapp. LOL

Rock on, Miss Snark! You go girl, you get down with your snarky self.

OMFD. 700?

You must have a shirt with a big "S" on it.

So I'm guessing, "not half bad" does not equal "send pages."

Miss Snark, I am #500 & #523, I think it is safe to delete one. It will make it easier on you and everyone else.

thanks, ac.

Lighting a candle for you, a white one. Gratitude (from me and the many) and strength (to you, lots and lots).

Good Luck to all the snarklings!

I'm one of the nitwits who didn't put "ok to post on blog" in the email, so my weeks of refining, refining, refining went up in smoke. The dissapointment I feel is only compounded when I read what honest and thoughtful commentary Miss Snark is giving. Maybe next time...

I don't know why you keep bothering with these, Miss Snark, but I'm sure glad you do!

700 of these things? Holy shit. You are one hell of a woman for going throuigh this, seeing as how I have a feeling that half of these are people just fishing for something to write about. You know, hey, I have a great idea for a book, let's send it to the literary agent and have her take a peek at my idea. Yeah, great.

I can't believe all of these are works in progress. On behalf of those of us who are looking for a critical eye to help us polish our hooks for works we've either completed or almost completed, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience Miss Snark, and I hope the assholes that are just wasting everyone's time with delusions are unlucky enough to shit their pants in public, maybe some black-tie affair.

I'm heartbroken...I sent my hook...but didn't get a number back...I then let her Snarkness know, in the way she'd specified (forwarded copy of original email)...and still nothing. (Checked bulk mail, as suggested by another poster...but no number.) And now the Miss-S says that's it...its over...everyone who is getting a number has one...it is sooooo utterly disappointing. So - to those of you getting skewered, remember - at least those countless rewrites and refinements and checking of FAQs and calendars and clocks has meaning. I'll just try to learn something from you. But...ARrrgggh...

"Miss Snark, I am #500 & #523, I think it is safe to delete one."

Send her an email in the next couple of days, with a clear "Please Withdraw my Hook from the Crapometer" in the subject line, and specifying which one you want deleted.

She obliged by withdrawing one of mine.

"I can't believe all of these are works in progress"

True, there have been a few to my mind that are not genuine, but I had assumed the vast majority were serious submissions. I don't understand why anyone would bother, otherwise.

However, for a writer, I can be very dumb about others' motivations.
