0 Puppies and Pitches and Screenplays, oh my!

Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word about the Practice Makes Pitch Perfect Challenge!

The challenge kicked off yesterday with a video lesson about describing your protagonist in a pitch. Then we had four different prompts for people to practice the skill, and people came up with some hilarious and poignant descriptions for the protagonist prompts. We’re tackling the goal of the protagonist today.

If you were thinking about joining the group, there’s still time! Click here to play along: https://www.facebook.com/groups/transmediamutts/

If you’re still not sure about joining, here’s the first video lesson to tempt you:



Don’t you want to find out what’s going to happen with the wallflower unicorn?!?

Plus there will be more dogs in costumes to help ease the painful process of crafting pitches, so come join the puppy party!


Now for the winner of the awesome stack of books – Danielle H.
Congrats! I’ll drop them in the mail as soon as I find a box big enough to hold them. 😁

In other news … At the beginning of the year I posted about the screenplay contest for my other adventure, the Grave Intentions Anthology. The post shared some of the ways writing a screenplay can help strengthen your “regular” writing. I also offered a discount code, and many of you entered with great horror scripts. This Thursday (May 31st) we’ll be announcing the short film and screenplay winners on the Grave Intentions social media sites. So if you’re not already following Grave Intentions, go follow us now, so you can find out if you or any of your fellow AYAPers won the big prize!

No matter what format your writing is taking these days, I hope it is going well!
