5 Things to Do the Day After a Twitter Pitch Party (and Mid-month Links)

5 Things to Do The Day After A Twitter Pitch Party

(Yes, this is a few days late ...)

1. Re-check the feed and see if there are any previously missed hearts from agents or publishers.

2. Review submission guidelines for agents and publishers no less than a dozen times throughout the day. (Actually, I don't know that anyone needs to review those guidelines a dozen times, that's just what I did.)

3. Thank retweeters. (I didn't do this the day after, but I did today.) 
-If this is you and I missed you on Twitter, THANK YOU!!!

4. Thank all all those who helped me hone my pitch.
- If this is you, THANK YOU!!! 

5. Get extra feedback on synopsis and more from beta readers.

Mid-Month Links

The IWSG made The Write Life List for the top 100 Writing Websites!

The Positive Writer is taking nominations and the IWSG hopes everyone will nominate them. Since I'm an Admin and a fan of the IWSG, I recommend nominating the IWSG.

My bit of news:
I am taking part in a "Write-In" group each week and I love it. We just sit and write for three hours.
And, I might be starting a critique group. 
Plus, I'm really read to sub my WIP ... or at least I'm 97% sure. So, that's happening because I think that's about as sure as I'm going to get.

Oh, how exciting that you're ready to start submitting your latest WIP. Best of luck with it! And that's great about the "write-in" group, too--very cool that you get to spend three whole hours writing every week!

All the best wishes for submission! If you're 97% sure, that's definitely a green light to go. It's my dream to do a write-in one day, even if I just do it once in a while.

I added a nomination for the IWSG. Thanks for sharing the link!

Good luck with the new WIP. The idea of the a writing shut in is pretty cool.

Don't miss a heart on a pitch.

Wish I had 3 hours a week to just write.

Years ago, I belonged to a writing group, and that was all we did - write! It was great for creativity, and more than one of my story ideas came out of those sessions. :)

Great job with the groups! Dedication will get you where you're going...

Hi Tyrean,

Congrats on your new work! GOOD LUCK!. I'll be facing the query trenches soon myself. First time in many years. EEK!

How did you find your "Write-In" group? It sounds awesome, but being an insecure writer, I'm not sure where to find one or how to start one ;)

Glad you're enjoying your "write-ins" :)
