Five years! Who'd've thunk. I created the blog on a whim--seriously. I was on the computer one day (a P.C. of all things--this was my pre-Mac era) and I suddenly thought, "Hey! I should start an anonymous blog for writers!"
Really. That's how it happened. No forethought, no mulling it over. I popped onto Blogger and typed "Miss Snark's First Victim" as the title of my new blog.
HERE IS THE VERY FIRST POST.
You probably want to pause for a moment in order to ingest the profound content of that post.
At any rate, it's amazing and fun to think that this ol' choo-choo has been chugging for 5 years. And we're going to CELEBRATE!
How, you ask? Like this:
- We're going to have a FAKE LOGLINE CONTEST. With prizes. You're going to love this.
- I'm going to post an MSFV RETROSPECTIVE, including chronological links to all the landmark posts over the past 5 years. (If you're relatively new to the blog, this will be especially enlightening for you.)
- We're going to play TINY AGENT. Think: photos of literary agents when they were little--without names attached.
- We're going to have a CREATE A "GIFT" FOR AUTHORESS contest. (This is when you get to show off a little, while competing for a prize.)
Sounds fun, yes? I'll post all the details for the FAKE LOGLINE CONTEST on Tuesday, March 19. And we'll go on from there.
Yay! Spread the word! And bring champagne. (And chocolate. And cupcakes. And confetti.)
