Twas the Day Before #PitMad…

…and all through the house, Lauren was freaking out.Related image


I’m not a poet. Sue me.

So tomorrow is the big day. #PitMad! For those who don’t know, #PitMad is a Twitter pitching event. You can tweet up to three different pitches throughout the day (8 AM – 8 PM). Now that Twitter has expanded its characters, it gives you a little more wiggle room to explain yourself. Thank God. “Likes” from agents equal query requests. Boom, baby!

Twitter Tuesday

Happy August!

A new month means a new batch of #amwriting prompts. Time to share. It helps having them all in the same place, no?

Happy writing, all!

*I’ll be updating this as I discover more games.*



Writing Wednesday: Another Twitter Pic

I’m stealing from Twitter again. Strike that. I’m sharing.

This caption could also be, “First draft” and “836th draft”

Not that I can relate to that. At all.

Have a good one! 😀


Motivational Monday: Twitter Edition

Let’s be clear. Twitter is a huge time suck. But it does have it’s positives as well, namely hashtag games and the #amwriting community. Daily prompts can be quite motivating actually. I’ve found some new Twitter hashtag games for this month. In case you’re interested:

June is here

When I was a teacher, I prayed for June. June, June, June. Come on, June. Now that I’m not wishing my life away hoping for summer, I’m actually bummed that it’s June already. I’m not ready for summer yet. I must have blinked and missed spring entirely.

But a new month means new goals and plans. First, I thought I’d revisit what I projected for May and see how I faired.

  1. Stop editing: Success!
  2. Final beta read(s): In progress–this is out of my hands 😀
  3. Find the courage to say goodbye to my characters: Success –sort of
  4. Transfer love to other WIP: Fail. An epic one.

I Did A Thing. Incorrectly.

Most writers (aspiring and otherwise) on Twitter know about the pitch party opportunities, which occur several times a year. Yesterday was one such event called #DVPit.

Is my manuscript even pitchable at this point in time? Eh, not 100%, no. And so even considering participation in this event was foolish. That should’ve been my first clue.

But I tweeted anyway.
