Today, I was obsessed with The Writer’s Voice Twitter Pitch contest. I stalked the thread for hours, read some amazing pitches, got insight into how editors make their choices, and was really impressed by how brave writers are. People confessed to being terrified about pitching, but they did it anyway. That is truly bad-ass.
My pitch wasn’t chosen but I’m proud of myself for trying. Like one of the editors said, they are just a teeny-tiny fraction of their industry and the business is subjective. The overarching message was keep trying, don’t stop writing.
Sounds like good advice to me.
