So how can you stack the deck? How do you make sure your query is on my list of "Yesses!"? How I pick my "THE ONE!" is honestly pretty personal, just whichever story I connect with for whatever reason. But you can do a lot of things to make sure you're at least one of the stories I agonize over not picking. So here are some of the most common issues I see in my submissions. You may noticed they go a bit beyond the basics, because, like I said, the qaulity in Pitch Wars is pretty high!
If you can stand out, explain the story in a way I can understand, include compelling emotions in your characters, with decent writing and it all fits into my wishlist, you'll very likely find yourself in my (much too long, I'm sure) want pile!
