Crapometer update

Dear Miss Snark,

What I really want to know is when the CRAPoMETER will be open again???



Generally the Crapometer is captured by federal lawmen and returned, in shackles, to NYC around the end of the year. Something about clearing the Top Ten Wanted List for the new year.

There are other places to turn in your hour of need, principally Evil Editor.

Thank you for mentioning the Evil Editor dialog exercise. The Crapometer is wonderful, but this thing Mr. Evil's doing is hopefully going to improve the crappy dialog you might otherwise have to read.

Even if you don't submit, it improves your eye for your own stupid errors.

Yup, what writtenwyrdd said. You learn just as much reading the other entires as you do reading the edits of your own. It's been very enlightening.

Yes, between the two of them, Miss Snark and Evil Editor are saving me from many instances of nitwittery.

(And I had to laugh at this word veri: huhpxki)

What I'd like to know is when "What Miss Snark has read in 2006" will change to "What Miss Snark has read in 2007". The answer is probably, "Quit Obsessing", but I will admit, that's what I, like other writers, do best.

Didn't anyone notice Miss Snark has gone from... never, ever again until... the Crapometer tends to return at th end of the year...

The Crapometer is like childbirth: it takes months (maybe years) for Miss Snark to forget the pain. In the meanwhile, Absolute Write has a query letter critique forum at http://www.absolutewrite.com/forumsand Electra runs http://www.crapometer.blogspot.com.
