Finding other writers can be hard.
In real life, a lot tend to be introverts. (I’m talking to you, Cowering Writer, who sits in the corner at the coffee shop and doesn’t make eye contact with the barista who is obviously trying to get your attention.)
Even if you’re not ready to enter Pitch Wars this year, you can still benefit from it. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Community Is Key. It’s like my slogan. Or my catch phrase. Or an acronym CIK (that’s totally cik, brah).
One of the best things about Pitch Wars is the collective community of writers that pool together on Twitter. They play games (If your MC stole something from your house, what would it be?), and they connect (#PitchWars #PitchWarriors). They chat with mentors and with each other. They ask for advice, they share their stories.
You don’t have to enter, and you don’t have to tightrope your way into the community. Just dive in, ask a question or two on the hashtag, and learn about others and–in doing so–learn about yourself.
Community. Is. Key!*
