Miss Snark is really nasty

Whoa. Miss Snark has to be one of the most arrogant creatures I've ever run across. Now granted, I am probably a bit jaded, being a writer, because I have tried and tried to find an agent for my novel without success. And it's not because my novel is not good. Sara Gruen, best selling author of the New York Times bestseller "Water For Elephants" read my novel and loved it. The publishing industry is saturated. In my opinion, that has a lot to do with the advent of the Internet. Everybody and their dog thinks they can write. I am here to tell you that they can't.

You might be saying to yourself, "now who sounds arrogant?" But it's not arrogance, it's fact. I've been on plenty of writer's message boards, I've read the excerpts. The thing I don't like about Miss Snark is her cavalier attitude toward beginners. As she swills her vodka and talks about her dog, she offers just enough of a glimmer of hope to wanna be writers and seems to enjoy making fun of their efforts. Why not just flat out tell them, "hey dude, you can't write. Find another hobby."

Instead, she rips their query letters to pieces for the world to see, masochistically handing them hope in one hand as she spanks them with the other. I wonder if Miss Snark is a wanna be writer herself? (I hope she doesn't read this, she may black ball me. right, like I matter in the bigger scheme of things)
