IWSG #15 – Twitter Pitching Results

This post was written for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group where we share our encouragement or insecurities on the first Wednesday of the month, to join the group or find out more click here.

Last month I reported my info on #PitchMad and since then I’ve done a second pitch party called #WritePit. Both were heart pounding fun. At first I hoped (prayed) for just one fave to prove that my pitches weren’t as bad as they suddenly looked.

I worked so hard. I needed twenty four tweets; one for every half hour of the twelve hour party. It is suggested that no two be the same. Beside the #WritePit or #PitchMad, they also asked for hashtags indicating genre and probable audience which knocked my 140 character closer to 130.

And I got Faves!!. It was amazing. After my first fave, I was so elated I knew I’d never stop using the twitter pitch to reach out.  I’ve been asked to submit seven times—five publishers and two agents. It feels good to have them approaching me rather than the other way around.

So far no acceptance, but a strange thing happened while I sent off my hopeful submissions. Confidence raised its head and urged me to submit elsewhere. So my plan is to send another batch of submissions out to my top ten agents.

Top ten, you ask.

Yes, a recent tweet reminded me of something we should all keep in mind when setting a goal.

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

Anyway the insecurity is on the down low and the swollen head is up high. I’m going to daisies-676368_1920enjoy the ride for as long as it lasts.

How’s life treating you? Try any pitch parties? Submit? I love to read about it. 🙂
