A Twitter Pitch Contest and My Twitter Pitch

Shelly Watters is doing an awesome twitter pitch contest on her blog. Susie Townsend from Fine Print Literary is the judge. Go.

Here's my Twitter Pitch:

Two siblings fall through a puddle and must race to find the next puddle, before it evaporates, or they’ll be lost forever in jungle swamp.

It feels like a suit to me. No personality. Any thoughts?


  1. Sounds interesting, but I think it needs a bit more. According to Save the Cat! your pitch should have a touch of irony to hook the reader and offer a set-up with the promise of more. It's a lot to expect from just a few words, but when it works, it can absolutely garner interest in your story.

  2. I completely agree. I have a fatter pitch with more but twitter is a bitter mistress. Thanks for the tips...
