A big family, a reading addiction, and the occasional celebrity scandal are the ingredients of life that create one woman's opinion on just about everything.

Jennifer Crusie Said...

Ms. Crusie weighed in on the Anne Stuart post on November 3 at Miss Snark. She starts off by saying she's Ms. Stuart's friend and then makes clear her opinion on anonymous blogging and just what constitutes snark. I posted a comment requesting she stick up for me if anyone ever bashes me anonymously. Now that is a friend.

Okay, I had to go over and do a 'high five' post.

I've been pretty clear about anonymous posts - I don't bother with them anymore. When someone posts as an anonymous author all I can think is 'yeah, prove you're an author.' So I don't bother anymore.

As for an anonymous agent - yeah, I'm sooo believing you.

I am *so* behind this post! Apart from the fact that Anne/Krissie has always been such a strong advocate for writers, I hate the thought that we should go sit in the corner and behave like good girls. That's not to say that we should be raving banchees about it, either, but I wouldn't see a guy having to make that choice.

I hadn't really thought about the anonymity of Ms Snark before, but yeah, I've always had an issue with anonymous posts. Either I sign myname or I don't post, that's all there is to it.

Sorry, but I rolled eyes at Crusie's post. Actually I rolled eyes at the whole 'Did you read what Anne said?' thing. Then again everyone has a right to taking a stance of righteousness at least once in their life, right?

Anonymity - it's a no-win situation, isn't it? If you say what you say under your 'real' name, you are likely to get slapped from here to wherever (MaryJanice Davidson is a good example or rather in this case, Anne Stuart). If you don't, you get slapped, anyway. :)

Cindy, I read the AAR interview before Miss Snark picked it up and nothing seemed all that jarring to me. I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder.

Gabrielle, I commented over at Dear Author that I didn't mind Ms. Stuart's remarks but didn't know if my opinion was colored because I like her writing or not.

Maili, I sometimes think these things get blown way out of proportion. However, the anonymous posting seems to be a hot button with a lot of people. I'm curious enough to go check things out but mostly just sit back and watch.
