Q&A: I Don’t Want to Pitch
Q: What if I love writing, but really struggle with the sales part, and hate the thought of pitching?
A: Of course you struggle. It’s scary and unfamiliar, it’s not why you became a writer, and you’re subjecting yourself to a lot of rejection. But always remember, the people you’re pitching to don’t give two hoots whether you’re nervous or bumbling or mess up. All they want is to hear a good idea for a movie or novel. They want you to succeed, because they are desperate to produce a hit or a best seller, and maybe yours is it. So just believe in your story, script a good pitch, and then practice, practice, practice. The rest will take care of itself.
You gotta learn to sell to be successful. Sales people control the world! Great response, thanks for the share!
