My little heart is going pitter-pat and it is certainly not because I’ve had too much coffee. (Really, I’m shocked you even thought that!)
No! I’m excited because last week I thought up a game that over 4 people expressed an interest in, and one of them has even sent an entry!
So we’re off and running with Would You Read It Wednesday!!! SO exciting!!!
(Okay. Now I’m putting on my announcer voice because I know how much you like it.)
It’s time to play Would You Read It! Please welcome our very first contestant, Andrea from Canada. Let’s give her an extra round of applause, ladies and gentleman, for being brave enough to go first AND tell us her real name!
Andrea presents us with this entry:
Working Title: Wild (Girl) Genius
The Pitch: After girly Jade persuades her adventure-enthusiast parents to get her into a special camp led by wilderness expert Carson Riley, Jade’s plans to show Carson she’s skilled enough to host a youth segment of his new TV show get messed up by a secret celebrity and someone sabotaging the camp.
So now it’s up to you folks. Let’s vote. Would you read it? YES, MAYBE, or NO?
If your answer is YES, please feel free to tell us what you particularly liked and why the pitch piqued your interest. If your answer is MAYBE or NO, please feel free to tell us what you think could be better in the spirit of helping Andrea improve her pitch. However, I must ask that comments be constructive and respectful. I reserve the right not to publish comments that are mean because that is not what this is about.
And now that you’ve all seen how fun this is in action, please send your pitches for the coming weeks and spread the word to all your writer friends so everyone can benefit! All we need are the working title if you have one, the age/genre you’re writing for, and The Pitch, (and your pitch can be anonymous if you prefer.) Try out pitches you’re polishing for submission to get a sense of how they’re working, or try out pitches for ideas you’re mulling over to see if they have merit. Writers and readers are here to help! Please send pitches to email@example.com (you can use the EMAIL ME button in the right hand column too if that’s easier :))
Looking forward to your thoughts on Andrea’s pitch, and to your pitches as well!
