The Pitch. It sounds like the name of a movie.
Or a book.
Speaking of books, I spoke about mine today.
Today was the first time ever that I pitched my book to a publisher!
I was so unbelievably nervous… no matter how many times I sipped water and applied lip balm beforehand, by the time I was finishing reading an excerpt of my manuscript, my mouth was dry and my lips were sticking together. 😬😬
But I got through. I came away with valuable takeaways, as well as an incredibly clear picture of what I should have said, instead of that which I did say. Why does it take us doing something wrong, to work out what we should do right?
Well, one more takeaway, one more right…
I was asked to submit the first 3 chapters of my novel to one publisher.
This is huge! This is epic! And yet that well-known alter-ego of mine, the one suffering from massive self-doubt and imposter syndrome, is convinced it was a pity request..
But still, even if pity, I will take it!
If a starving man was given food out of pity, do you think they would decline the offer?
Just as I too took it, happily said thank you, and then shut down the Zoom session to fall onto a heap on baby girl’s bed and be thankful the nerves, for now, were all over.
Whatever happens, I am grateful for this opportunity, to take another step forward. I have already learnt so much. 🙏
Life is full of learnings… ❤❤
