Last Thursday I participated in another Twitter pitching contest: #SFFpit. This one was focused on Science Fiction and Fantasy. It was smaller, and you could tell by the level of participation from the agent/publisher end. I feel like barely anyone received “favorites,” though there were a lot of pitchers, and publishers asking to submit to them anyway. I received a few likes; we’ll see how they pan out.
I was sick most of the day so I wasn’t able to watch the feed for interesting pitches as much as I did for #PitMad, but I still found some really neat ideas and writers.
Now I’m finding myself thinking of ideas in log-lines … “How can I mash up two ideas that don’t seem to go together?” It’s entertaining. And probably will be helpful in the future for interpreting the core thrust of my story and writing in that fashion.
Did anyone else participate? Thoughts, ideas? Are you engaging in other writer-y activities and finding yourself thinking in different ways?
