Last week I popped my Twitter party cherry. On Thursday, September 10, I participated in #PitMad. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this event, it’s a Twitter pitch party where writers tweet pitches for their polished and unpublished manuscripts. If an agent or editor likes your pitch and wants to see a query, they favorite your tweet. The catch: pitches are restricted 140 characters.
This is not an easy feat. Pitching your story in one short paragraph is incredibly difficult. Doing it in one sentence is grueling. But 140 characters means describing your story in about 25 words or less.
