2014 #PitchWars Contestant Hop--Now it's YOUR turn!!



Hi Kids!

Have we dotted our t's, crossed our i's and hit send on our final mentor pitches? Are you wondering what to do with yourself between now and the big announcement other than gnawing your fingernails down to the beds?

Well, you can use your time to craft your own Pitch Wars bio, of course.

FIRST AND FOREMOST THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL PITCHWARS EVENT AND IS NO WAY REQUIRED.

But last year people had a blast sending links to Mentee Bios posted on your blog and they are TOO FULL OF WIN not to share in an organized way for those of us who may be just a smiiiiidge OCD. So here's your chance. And you never know which mentors might be watching!

1. Please enter your name (as you identify yourself in your #PitchWars queries) and blog info linking directly to your PitchWars mentee bio in the linky below. There's no guarantee that the mentors will see them but some of us will be scoping you out online.

2. In your mentee bio, please link back to this post (I have will have more bloggish things going on this week, so please link directly to this post).

3. It would also be nice if you would comment on people's posts, cheer each other on, and keep the energy jumping and positive while we slush our way through your lovely words. 

4. Support your fellow writers by following each other's blogs and connecting on twitter!

And special thanks to mentee contender Christopher Keelty (@keeltyc) who started this whole ball of fun!

    1. @Megan, at the bottom of the linky box there's a link that says "Click here for Mister Linky's name/URL cookie removal tool." I think that's how you do it.

  40. What if we used our real name to submit, but we use a pseudonym on our blog/twitter/writing? I'm new to this so I think I made things complicated for myself. :/

    ReplyDelete
  41. Posted mine! Now time to stalk all the others! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Although it won't show the link back to this page...hmmm...trying to comply, let me see whazzup.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I feel like I should remove my link, because I don't have a cool witty mentee blog post, but just my serious site bio. So, I'll add a few trivia things here, if that's okay: I was in the pit crew for demolition derbies for an entire summer. I played hide-and-seek in the Psycho house on a full moon Halloween night. I competed in International Latin dancing competitions... and did well, until my instructor took all his student's money and scampered off to Europe with it. I'm taking up too much space, so I'll shut up now.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Added mine :) These have been really entertaining! Great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I feel like I'm coming really late to this party. This was hard but fun.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thank you for this opportunity. You all are amazing competition and I am happy to meet you.

    ReplyDelete

  53. Brenda, Dannie, and all who have worked hard to put this together: thanks again and again! #Pitchwars has helped to breathe new life into my summer. I've enjoyed following the tweets, posts, mentors, mentees, bios, and more. I've followed at least a hundred people and have gotten a bunch of new followers, too. What fun! :-)
