Yes, Miss Snark is back from her vacation. Like a concert pianist, she slipped behind her keyboard, wriggled her fingers and posted another one of her generous offers:
Ok...let's dust off the Crapmeter and take it out for a hayride.
Miss Snark needs to hone her snarkieness so let's see what ya'll have for her chomping pleasure.
Let's do first pages again.
To have your first page run through the Is It Crap meter, it must be:
From a novel (ie no non fiction, no memoirs, no essays, no poems)
Less than 300 words.
Emailed to me. firstname.lastname@example.org
---in the body of the email, no attachments.
---sometime during the 24 hours of Sunday, 8/285, eastern time.
Tell me what kind of novel it is in less than five words ie thriller, science fiction, women' s fiction, lugubrious self referential fiction...yanno, the usual.
You must tell me it's ok to post it and make comments about it on the blog.
All entries that miss one or more of the qualifications will be sneered at, ignored, and used as grist for future postings about people who want to be writers but can't seem to read.
OMG!, she's already up to #18! Surf over and read the work; some of it's great. Two weeks with the ever-sponge-worthy George Clooney did not dull her talents.
