Staying Sane in Pitmad

September 6, 2018

The time is upon us, friends!

 

It’s that lovely time of year when you break your writer brain in the attempt to compress your hundred-thousand-word novel into a 280 character tweet, not counting leaving space for genre hashtags.

 

Your twitter feed is about to clog like a sketchy motel shower drain, and every time you get a fave that isn’t from an agent, you’re gonna wanna commit grand-something-or-other that carries of a minimum jail sentence of 5 totally-worth-it years.

 

 

I know, because I’ve been there. Twice. (okay actually a lot more but we don't need to talk about it)

 

After years of querying and tweeting and contesting, I signed with my first agent off a PitchMas tweet.

 

Then she quit agenting.

 

Back to querying I went, and it was another Pitmad where I found my agent. (Actually, her intern (at the time) found me!)
