Come on in and set awhile, folks! It’s time for your favorite and mine: Would You Read It Wednesday!
But first, a word from our sponsors.
Has winter got you down? Are you loathe to emerge from the comfy warmth of your blankets on these cold, dark January mornings? Have the last 3 stories you wrote been titled Smiley Miley Goes To Aruba, Stinky Pete And The Tropical Island Paradise, and A Hot, Hot Day In July? Are you making secret plans to hibernate until April?
Never fear! We have a remedy for your winter doldrums!
The First Annual Pretty Much World Famous Valentiny Writing Contest! (Yes, that’s a link to take you to the contest guidelines!)
Wash your hair! Shave your legs! Put on actual clothing and join your fellow writers for some fun in the creative sun! You’ll be surprised by how happy and energized you feel (and not just because of the 5 pounds of hair you shaved off your legs :)) You can write a brand new story, enjoy the company of other writers and the entertainment of their stories, and possibly win a fabulous prize which I haven’t thought up yet but I WILL! 🙂
So get out your writing implements, rev up your brain, and join us at a blog near you!
Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming!
Something Chocolate anyone? I’m feeling Brownie Sundae-ish this morning. You know, some nice hot fudge to warm us up!
Here’s a napkin. Wipe your chin.
Now then, today’s pitch comes to us from Carleen who says, “I am a writer who forgot to grow up, and now it’s too late!”
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Annabelle Changes Her Name
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
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 Carleen improve her pitch. Helpful examples of possible alternate wordings are welcome. (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.)
Please send YOUR pitches for the coming weeks! For rules and where to submit, click on this link Would You Read It or on the Would You Read It tab in the bar above. There are openings in February so you’ve got a little time to polish up your pitches and send yours for your chance to be read by editor Erin Molta!
Carleen is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to drumming up some great prizes for the aforementioned Valentiny Writing Contest! Wish me luck! 🙂
Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone!!! Stay warm! 🙂
