If you’re a writer, you’ve probably heard of Pitch Wars. Or maybe not. I didn’t discover it until earlier this year. Anyway, I applied to be a mentee this year, meaning a published author would mentor me as I got ready to publish. Query letters, synopsis, draft rewrite, everything. However, the October 12th selection deadline passed without a whisper coming may way. I didn’t even get a request in their Twitter contest. Rejection never felt so good.
I feel liberated now that the deadline has passed. I’ve been struggling to work on my next project with this one lingering in my mind. But now I’m free. It’s free. The self-publishing journey continues.
