A message for all the Pitch Wars hopefuls!

The Pitch Wars agent round starts tomorrow! And I’m reposting some encouraging words for all the hopeful mentees and alternates. AND don’t forget we have prizes for the mentors and mentees with the top requests. There are many pathways to acquiring your publishing goals. Pitch Wars is just one of a few. Though I know you’ll be disappointed if you don’t get requests, please remember there is always querying and other contests on the horizon. Just finishing a manuscript requires a love for writing, and putting your work out there is such a brave act. Congratulations for getting into the game. Every heartache, every victory, will get you a step closer to success.  A I have had many heartaches and many missteps. I’ve been rejected (a lot). I’ve had to change my course (a few times). But giving up was never an option for me. I picked myself up, learned what I had to, and made several friends along the way. My wish for you is to keep going, never give up, and gather friends who will cry and celebrate with you through the battle. I admire each and every one of you for putting on a brave face and putting your work out there. You are so cared for by all the mentors and myself. There are posts in our Facebook group full of love and caring; my heart swells just reading them. I am truly blessed to be in this community with you. Thank you for entrusting me with your work and for making me smile every day. Keep going! I want to thank our sponsor for donating some prizes for our wonderful mentors! Twitter | Kelly P.
