Mojo Monday: The Elevator Pitch

It’s Mojo Monday, and as always, I’ve got a little something-something to lift your creative spirits, buoy you up, help you get your mojo on, and nudge you into writerhead.

Looking for an agent? Prepping for a 30-second elevator pitch?

This video should help get you in the right frame of mind…and make you chuckle. (It cracks me up.)

Three takeaways:

  • It can be hard to succinctly articulate what your manuscript is about. (Tip: Figure it out BEFORE you approach an agent.)


  • It can be hard to contain your ardor for your own story. After all, you’ve lived with your story for what seems like FOREVER. You feel married to it. You love it. (Tip: Temper your passion.)


  • It can be hard not to act like an insane nutball when you come face to face with an agent. (Tip: Practice meeting an agent. Pretend your broom is an agent. Role play.)


Here ya go:
