Miss Snark and Killer Yapp,
I've received quite a few rejection letters lately for various pieces of writing, and I'm beginning to suspect that my writing sucks. I know you've suggested that writers never stop writing, but I also know that many people, Stephen King included, believe a competent writer can become a good writer, but a bad writer has no hope.
Friends and writing groups will offer positive suggestions to improve your writing, but who will tell you that you just need to put the pen down?
The Crapometer has been known to call 'em as it sees 'em.
The Crapometer however is currently running a presidential campaign in Iowa and thus unavailable.
The Evil Editor has been known to be brutally frank.
And is Elektra still holding forth on the less Snarky Crapometer?
And you can always post it to your blog and invite comments.
