Well, it’s Wednesday. I don’t know how we got here so fast this week, but we did. Which is not good, because I am still on Monday’s work! (Er, possibly LAST Monday’s…!)
I think a little Something Chocolate is in order, don’t you? Clearly some of us (ahem… the person in charge around here) need a swift kick to get us in gear, and what better kicker than chocolate? (That is a rhetorical question! The ONLY answer is of course… chocolate!) Let me check my supplies… Mmmm! This looks tasty!
I feel more energetic and motivated already! 🙂
Now that we are all fortified with cake, I shall announce the winner of the January Pitch Pick. I know you have all been waiting anxiously to hear who it is, since we had such a nail biting vote what with the tie and all. It was a tough, tough choice, and all the pitches were terrific, but the winner for January is WENDY with her MG pitch for Civil. Congratulations, Wendy, your pitch has already flown through cyberspace and awaits the attention of editor Erin Molta. And congratulations and thank you to ALL our pitchers who bravely put forth their work so that we can all learn.
Today’s pitch comes to us from Wendy G – not to be confused with Wendy L who won the January Pitch Pick! Once a microbiologist, then an attorney, Wendy found her way to writing for children. A lover of jokes (good and bad), she roots for underdogs. You can connect with Wendy:
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Herman’s Super-Powered Heiney Or Why Fireflies Should Never Drink Soda
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 3-7)
The Pitch: One night, all the insects at a campground sip from a discarded cup of soda—all the insects except for the two fireflies, Herman and his sister, Tara. In HERMAN’S SUPER-POWERED HEINEY OR WHY FIREFLIES SHOULD NEVER DRINK SODA, a feisty, rule breaking firefly learns firsthand why he shouldn’t drink soda. It’s Curious George mixed with A Bug’s Life. A wacky picture book with a sibling friendship hook.
Wendy is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to another slice of cake, getting caught up on my work (hahahahahahahaha!!!!! – you know, it’s good for you to laugh!), and to seeing if any new pitches come in because we are going to run out soon!
Have a great day, everyone!
