IWSG: #pitMad? Yeah, I Didn't Know What It Was Either!
"Are You Ready for #PitMad"?
(Click here to see what it is and join us on Twitter from 8am-8pm on June 4! Are You Ready for #PitMad?)
I was like, "Umm, what in the world? Does it have to to with being mad about pit bulls?"
So, I clicked on the link and as soon as I read the article I was hooked. What a great idea. Yes, it'll be crazy on Twitter for agents and writers alike. Yes, it'll require WORK from me, and any other writer, to narrow down your blurb to 140 characters that have to include "#pitmad" and "#<insert genre here>" and finally make sure to include the ever-important TITLE of your work.
Over the last few hours of working on my tweets, I came up with a system and I can't wait to get it out there. Even though I am so insecure about my writing. Even though only a handful of people have read the first in the series of "Lane Changes". Even though I have only one short story published a few years ago...I could go on and on but at some point I have to pull up my big girl panties and get "Lane Changes" out there and get it noticed. Anything I can do before it is published, by me or a publisher, will help the name stick in readers' minds.
So, if you have a finished, polished manuscript and want a safe way to try and get an agent hooked, try #pitMad.
