I love deadlines. Adore them. Not kidding–I function best with a giant anvil hanging over my head.
Unfortunately, the deadline I set for a one week turn around from one contest to another–despite the fantastically insightful criticism I got back from the #PitchWars mentors–was not long enough to make it onto the Sept 10th run of #Pitmad.
Reworking the first 50 pages and doing more show and less tell there is taking a lot more time. As it should.
New deadline is for the end of September on the rework and I’m aiming at some agents for October.
#Pitmad, I’ll see you in December.
P.S. Get on over to the pitch tweets and learn, that’s what I’m doing today!
