Who doesn’t like to win. I know I do. Winning is awesome. It just doesn’t happen very often. Or maybe I should say it doesn’t happen enough. Well last week I won. I not only won but I won something very cool. As you know I am a writer but I want to be a published writer.
What’s the best way to become a published writer? Find a literary agent. Well I entered a contest on the Love YA blog hosted by Monica B.W. In this contest agent Hannah Bowman read pitches that were 140 characters long. A twitter pitch.
I woke up one morning and was reading through some blogs when I saw this contest. Monica said she was going to only accept 60 pitches. I scrolled down to see how many pitches had already been entered. When I saw it was 27 I thought I better do this now or I won’t make it.
I pulled out the computer (I was reading the blog on my phone) and posted my pitch.
Pitch: She is pure evil and has a plan to take over the world. Thousands will do anything to kill her. There is only one problem. I’m her bodyguard.
Then as I am sure you can guess from the title of this blog I won. I know hard to believe right? Okay I know you all think I am super-duper awesome so maybe you aren’t surprised. I will post the link just in case you want to make sure I am right.
That’s right, I have a chance to show the first 50 pages of my book to Hannah Bowman. I would like to thanks Monica and Hannah for this chance. Thanks.
