Dear Miss Snark,
I noticed that on the Crapometer blog itself, the rules for entry state that we are supposed to submit a 250 word hook to you, but on the Miss Snark blog post from the announcement on October 4th, the hook wordcount limit is 100.
I just wanted to verify that the hook is allowed to be 250. I would not want to be disqualified for making a simple mistake, I'd rather be disqualified for making a much more complex and stupid mistake.
Thank you for taking the time to do this.
You are wise to ask. Miss Snark delights in disqualifying people left and right if only to indulge her thirst for cruelty to hapless writers.
In fact, it's 250 words in the hook and 750 if you get to send pages. That's the info on the Happy Hooker Crapometer blog and that's the best place for all info on the COM.
