Write out your pitch ahead of time (as in don't type it directly in the comment column first!)
Let it sit for a bit.
Go back and review/revise.
Do this till you have something you like.
Select your target audience: adult/YA/MG/picture book. PICK ONLY ONE
Select your genre: romance, crime, SF, fantasy, western, or commercial fiction. PICK ONE
Select your "context material"--generally this will be what develops and explains your pitch. I think of it as the first paragraph of your query. This is a work in progress, so don't worry about making a mistake.
THEN POST all of this as one comment in the comment column of this blog post.
ONE entry per person
NO DO OVERS.
(that is, you cannot erase your entry and start over)
This means it's essential to draft in a place that is NOT the comment you intend to post.
30 words max. Fewer are fine.
Please do NOT talk about this on Twitter, Facebook or other social media platforms. I'd like to keep this to regular blog readers for now.
Be prepared for me to discuss your work here on this blog if you enter.
If you do NOT want me to do that, DO NOT ENTER.
I will close the comments when we've reach the number I think I can read and consider. It won't take long: 10:31am
On Sunday, a post for discussing this will go up. Please do NOT post anything here other than pitches.
My comments will be posted no earlier than Monday.
