First off, well done to all you enterprising bloggers and surfers who have entered the Bang2write Pitch Fest, due to go out this Wednesday, July 4th.
Secondly - where the hell are the rest of you?!?*
I haven't counted them all yet, but we have UNDER 20 entries. Since I know in the region of 500 of you entered Fever Pitch so MUST have a logline and synopsis floating around, this is a SCANDAL!
I know some of you don't like the idea of sticking stuff up on the 'net in case peeps nick your ideas. Get over this. You don't expose yourself (oooh matron), your ideas and your writing, you aren't going to attract interest in your stuff; you don't attract interest in your stuff, you're not going to be the writer you want to be. Don't believe me though - ask The Man Adrian Mead: he'll tell you! ; )
I know a lot of you are off to The Screenwriters' Fest too, so perhaps you think you don't have enough time to polish your synopses. Ok, I can dig that: life in my house is one mad rush of cheerios-eating, school runs, nappie-changing, vacuuming and chucking of junk into cupboards before any actual writing gets done.
So this is what I'm gonna propose.
You ALL must have loglines floating around, right?? Well, there is going to be a second section of this competition - one for pitches with synopses, one for loglines on their own. SEND ME YOUR LOGLINES! Email them or leave them in the comments section. Make them up on the spot if you want to, see if anyone is interested on that idea that popped into your head in the last three hours... Go!
DEADLINE: Midday, Tuesday July 3rd.
