As many of you already know, I was chosen for Round 7 of Author Mentor Match this past March. It's been a completely wild experience and I've loved every second with my wonderful mentor and all my mentee-peers. While I have no complaints about AMM and I am certainly grateful for the opportunity, there is… Continue reading Wait, I Have to Do This Again?: Post-AMM Writing Fatigue
Good news: I didn't either! If you're at all active on Twitter and were somehow involved in the Pitch Wars community there, you've probably seen all my tweets along with the copious amount of Spongebob gifs accompanying them. I was really active in the Pitch Wars tag and I don't regret it one bit. Making… Continue reading So you didn’t get into Pitch Wars…
As you probably know if you're reading this post, mentees for Pitch Wars 2019 will be announced on November 3rd, 8 days from the writing of this post. Before mentees are announced, I just wanted to share some thoughts on the Pitch Wars process, as well as what it's done for still-budding career. This is… Continue reading Some Final Pitch Wars Thoughts…
With the mentee announcements for Pitch Wars fast approaching, I wanted to write a post about my post-PW plans for a lot of reasons. Reason 1: There is a huge chance I won't be picked. Total bummer, but I've gotten pretty used to rejection in the writing world at this point, so I don't think… Continue reading My Post-Pitch Wars Plans
That's right, folks. I have submitted MIDNIGHT AT THE NEON TIGER for Pitch Wars consideration. This is my first year submitting and I have no idea what to expect. I just know that I'm nervous and would be delighted to get picked. It's out of my hands now, though, and I have to let my work… Continue reading I’ve Officially Submitted to Pitch Wars!
If you follow me on Twitter (if you don't, click here), then you'll know that in addition to being a writer, I'm also a huge K-pop fan. In an attempt to stave off PW-related anxiety, I decided to make a thread on Twitter of the characters in my manuscript as K-pop songs. I've decided to… Continue reading My #PitchWars Submission Characters as K-Pop Songs
READERS, HAVE YOU HEARD? IT'S PITCH WARS EVE! EVERYBODY CALM DOWN. WE'RE GOING TO BE FINE. DEEP BREATHS. ...ARE WE BREATHING? YES? NO? MAYBE? Great. I'm glad we're on the same page here. Now that my caps-lock is off, I just wanted to say good luck to all my potential fellow mentees out there. This… Continue reading HAPPY #PITCHWARS EVE
With the PitchWars submission window fast approaching (three days, everyone!), I've been trying to distract myself with various character-related things. Instead of finishing my homework for my class, I made aesthetic boars for my two main characters. Kind of like what you'd see on Tumblr. Behold: Next up is Wolf, the other main character and… Continue reading Neon Tiger – Character Aesthetics!
Hello. You're probably here because of PitchWars, right? Because you saw this link on my Twitter and decided that you, a fellow anxiety-haver, needed to see what I had to say? I'm sure that's it. I'm glad we got that out of the way. Now that we have, let's talk about anxiety. I have a… Continue reading How to Participate in PitchWars When Anxious
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… Continue reading PitchWars 2019!
