If you couldn’t tell from the title, I’m doing PitchWars this year! I’m terrified! I keep trying to tell myself that I have nothing to lose by entering. Because I don’t, right? I enter and I don’t make it. Fine! But if I enter and I DO make it…that’s something else entirely.
I’d always seen PitchWars floating around the #WritingCommunity ether on Twitter, but I’ve been terrified to enter because I have anxiety issues. A lot of them. This year, however, I want to try. I want to try and I’m so looking forward to having a mentor if I’m lucky enough to be picked.
Writing has been a largely solitary activity for me–mostly because of anxiety–but I think I’m finally ready to take my career to the next level.
Good luck to the rest of my fellow mentees out there!
