Okay, I’m climbing down from the sad horse I rode in on last night to announce that I’ve entered Pitch Wars. See? Moving on I am!
What’s that? You don’t know what Pitch Wars is? Well, then head on over to Brenda Drake’s blog and read this post. Have no time to click through and read? Okay, okay, I’ll spell it out.
From the list of participating mentors at the bottom of the above-mentioned post, you apply to three (or fewer if you want, but you can send in up to three applications). The mentors then choose which authors they want to work with and workshop the daylights out of the authors’ projects. In January, there’s an agent round!
I narrowed down my list of mentors to five last night and finally managed to choose three. It took some doing, though, because I was tired. And one sounded perfect and then I read, “But please, no portal fantasy.” *headdesk* WHYYYY?
So. Submissions were sent off this morning. And now I wait. And cross my fingers. And hang around the hash tag on Twitter. And maybe work on my WIP. And listen to Christmas tunes.
And try not to gain a hundred pounds on yummy holiday food.
Well, I should probably get back to work. You know, querying and such. Because I have a list. Happy Tuesday!
