Good morning everyone! It’s time, once again, for everybody’s favorite game show: Would You Read It!
(Really, that would be so much more fun if it was lit up and sparkly, but I am not that talented at technology :))
Today’s pitch comes to us from the lovely Megan in Indiana. Welcome, Megan, and thanks so much for playing the game!
Megan presents us with this entry:
Title: The Rhyme Machine
Pitch: “Chaos breaks out in a classroom when an imaginary ‘rhyme machine’ springs to life and starts creating things that rhyme with anything that’s said.”
So what do you think? 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 Megan 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, seriously!, please send your pitches for the coming weeks and spread the word to all your writer friends or this game will die on the vine! We can only play if we have pitches. I know a lot of you have big writer followings, so I would be most grateful if you wouldn’t mind spreading the word!
Rules For The Game: send your 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 – just let me know) to firstname.lastname@example.org (or use the handy Email Me button on the right-hand side.) 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!
Megan looks forward to your thoughts on her pitch!
