It’s a Go

It’s a Go

Apparently all it took was a little group therapy via the blog for me to push through the wall. I sat down and finished the pitch that had been going through my head since June, sent it in and within a few hours got a positive response. I’d been telling myself for months that they would be foolish to reject my pitch, and now I feel a little silly that it took my so long to actually do it. I’ll let you know if/when my story actually runs.

  1. How exciting! I look forward to hearing THAT your story runs! Ü You’d be a great motivational speaker for my 2nd graders… to bad you live a gazillion miles away!

  2. awesome!! thats the Lizzie I know. super smart and really does do it ALL. Way to push past your wall, so to speak.
    Good job!

  3. For someone who supposedly does it all, I sure do feel like I spend a lot of time doing nothing.

    It sure does get easier once you’ve done it a few times. It also makes it easier knowing that an editor probably isn’t going to take the time to respond if she doesn’t want the story. And this one was particularly easy because I felt like I had a good grasp on their readership and what kinds of stories they are interested in. That made it a lot easier. But really, just the experience of pitching is what makes it doable.

  4. Hey that’s great. I think the biggest problem that people run into (myself included) is that we underestimate ourselves. Your pretty much awesome, so I’m sure you’ll have nothing to worry about.
