#kidlit, here's a great Monday-Funday contest and brain-nudger for the next 7 weeks! Plus, you may just win a prize from little ol' me! (Or is that LITTLE MEDUSA...hmm, we're a bit inseparable these days!) @thekidlitcrew #picturebooks #giveaway
Can we taco about how awesome this fun fake #pitchevent is going to be? Lettuce all prepare for Tuesday. Que so who is going to participate my #kidlit friends in this #tacopitch put on my the amazingly encouraging @markeology?
YOUR FUTURE IS BRIGHT is an incredibly beautiful and inspiring book by Corey Finkle! I can see it being given to children at major milestones for generations to come. Thank you for sharing it with me @Cefinkle. My daughters and I will cherish it. 😊 #WritingCommunity #kidlit
In the funny new #pb, SLOTH & SQUIRREL IN A PICKLE by @CatBallouMealey w/art by @collierK_ , the pals must work together packing pickles to earn money to buy a bike, but then things go sideways (upsidedown really) fast + S L O W ! @KidsCanPress #kidlit
No regular #thursdayreadthroughs drawing this week, because I'll be traveling to visit family (finally!) I'm still offering this #kidlit #writingcommunity challenge though! Hope you're able to read and record a first read-through for a critique partner this month.
Having a case of the Mondays? At least tomorrow is: 🌮TACO TUESDAY🌮 and that means @tacopitch is finally here! What started as a joke from @markeology is... still a joke! But #tacopitch is the next big thing on Twitter! Details to follow. 👉🏼follow @tacopitch now! #kidlit
I still can't believe that @JoyceGrackle decided to represent me! Me?! A no-name writer with nothing but dreams in her eyes. We are just few weeks in, and she is already working sooo hard to make my voice heard. What would I do with you, Joyce?
Gotta get my pitches ready! I'm thinking a game of Fortunately/Unfortunately could be a good way to get started. #TacoPitch
My Fridays are virtual teaching days. At the end of the day, I read a story to my class. At some point, my students started having their little brothers and sisters join them for storytime. Not sure how it happened but glad it did. This will be a favorite #virtualteaching memory.
Think of it as a no-pressure opportunity to hone your pitching skills. If you can learn to write a great pitch for something you'll never actually publish, how much better will your pitches for your real work become?
I'm starting a new pitch contest open to everyone. The hashtag is #FakePitch. Give me your best pitch for something you'll never actually write. I will personally Venmo the winner $1.19 for a taco from Taco Bell in honor of Taco Tuesday. Winner is whoever gets the most likes.
I scheduled my tweets so I could participate in #WMPitch today. Thanks to all who supported me. I tried to retweet during lunch. There were so many good pitches, it was overwhelming. I have no idea how agents sort through all of that, but I am sure glad they do what they do.
Another #FirstDraftFriday in the books! Congrats to all who got some great "terrible first drafts" done today! Big thanks to @PhaeaCrede for sharing her secrets and cheering folks on! Everyone's a winner! But the critique winner is... @chloeeemiko!!! I'll be in touch by email!
Tonight, I drove my kids around chasing the end of a rainbow. Embrace magic, friends. 🌈 #chasingdreams #chasingrainbows
@BCrowMiller Sometimes I make connections with other writers through pitch parties. And it's good to see what else is out there. But it's definitely an emotional experience. You've got to look out for yourself and only participate if you feel up to it.
