Welcome to you wonderful new followers.
Thank you for coming aboard.
This week I left my comfort zone.
I entered my first pitch slam at
and boy am I glad I did.
Don't get me wrong, my fingers quivered over the keys and I got "that" feeling in my stomach. I knew I was stepping up to the mound and tossing one out IN PUBLIC. Yikes.
I crossed everything that wasn't painful or unnatural, hoping the judges wouldn't throw me out of the game.
Why did I do it? Well, my mama didn't raise no fools except for my brothers. Here was a chance to get not one, not two, but three critiques on my pitch. Yes, the dreaded pitch, the all important grabber that must enchant an agent or editor if my work is ever going to leave the batter's box.
I want to learn how to throw a pitch that will allow my MS a chance to be hit out of the park.
Not one like this.
The Yalitchat pitch slam has done just that. I am rounding the bases of inspired pitches and home run comments by the judges.
Treat yourself and head over to the Pitch Slam for a fantastic education and grand slam examples in the art of the pitch.
I kneel before Yalitchat in gratitude for the opportunity to learn how to launch a perfect pitch. Thank you.
And next time you have a chance to leave your writing comfort zone - DO IT
