The Writer’s Voice/Pitch Wars competition featured many talented writers with intriguing concepts. I did not make a team, but I wish good luck to those who did and to their coaches. You can follow the competition at Brenda Drake’s blog.
Many conversations about the contest were on twitter, and I didn’t want to miss out, so I set up a twitter account:
Follow me if you do that sort of thing.
New to twitter, I did a lot of lurking so as not to mess up or offend anyone (sorry if I have!)
Immediately, I learned about #PitMad, a day in which writers pitch their completed novels in 140 characters, all day long. Wow! I should have gotten on twitter a long time ago!
I participated in #PitMad and had some success getting noticed. I’ll be sending out queries over the next few days.
So, though I “lost” on Writer’s Voice, I’m still a winner!
