Not getting picked for a team

 

 

 Getting no likes at PitMad feels like not being chosen for the kickball teams in grade school. It’s not current trauma, it’s past trauma that complicates the feeling. I tell myself that PitMad doesn’t determine my worth or the worth of my books.

It is a setback, sure, just as it has been with other #PitMads and #SFFPits. But it’s more a testimony on my ability to write pitches, the matter of thousands of pitches flowing across Twitter at the same time, the glut of submissions in fantasy writing. 

I need to find a way around this. Maybe improving my pitches will help. Maybe I should work on making my query letters better (which I am doing). 

I can just quit or I can beat my head against the wall — or I can improve. And, I guess, pray.
