Bait and Pitch Workshop
« on: August 01, 2014, 11:47:38 AM »
Found this on Twitter. Author and freelance editor, Danni Morin, is letting you post up to four sentences of your query on her blog for others to critique. In return, you critique someone else's. She is doing this every Thursday until #PitchWars, which starts Aug 18th.

So guys, get in on the action and help get that agent/publisher!

Here's the link: http://dcmorin.blogspot.com/2014/07/bait-and-pitch-query-pitch-workshop.html

Thanks for the share! Sadly, my WIP won't be ready for Pitch Wars (I'm so bummed cause it was an amazing experience last time).

Is it bad I find it really annoying that most people are posting their entire query and not a 4 line pitch as outlined in the rules? It probably shouldn't bother me as much as it does...

Sorry to hear that, Spike. I couldn't participate the last time, so I'm excited for this go around. :)

And I would bother me too. People don't follow the rules, and that is annoying! I follow #tenqueries as faithfully as I can, and the most problems people seem to have is following rules.

I'll never understand it.  :nope:
