Manuscript update: 4,954 words. Had a pretty good session yesterday. Today, I’m procrastinating with this blog post. 🙂 But then I’ll knuckle down. I think I’m behind if I want to meet my goal of finishing the first draft by the end of May.
QueryTracker is hosting a pitch contest today with literary agent Chris Richman of Upstart Crow Literary.
To enter, you must have completed the manuscript you’re pitching and pitch it in 25 words or less. You can enter as many times as you want, but you must be a member of QueryTracker and follow the site’s blog. More details are here, along with a link to a page for help in writing pitches.
The contest is open just today.
I can’t find anywhere what the prize for the contest is, but if you’ve got a completed manuscript that’s ready to go, it can’t hurt to get a pitch in front of a great agent.
Thanks for posting about the contest. Don’t be too hard on yourself on word count. It sounds like you’re plugging along. I’m on the other end of word count–cutting words from my manuscript. I’m almost to the last 50 pages.
Thanks, Natalie. I’m always too hard on myself. 🙂
That’s great that you’re close to being done with your cutting. Good luck with the last 50 pages.
