As some of you may have noticed on Twitter, I’m celebrating the publication of my second short story and 4th literary publication (the other two are personal essays).
Hi the wonderful Twitter people of the twitter universe!
Some of you (Well, most of you if you are here) know me. I’m a fiction author who has been fairly active on twitter via contests, groups, discussions for about 2 years now. A lot of you know me from our conversations, query swaps, and etc. But now I’m coming to you for help, in any way you can give, in something not writing related.
It is that time of year! 2015! Equality is through America, we have equal housing, another Clinton (or a Biden?) might be in office–and it’s hot as hell.
Oh, and Pitch Wars 2015 is underway. Don’t know what it is? Has a polished MS? Wanna make amazing friends? Then click right up there!
This is my Mentee bio! Get to know me, comment (fellow authors or mentors), hit me up on twitter (@KosokoJackson) and let us make ever lasting connections.
And now, let’s enjoy the show.
Are you a writing looking to read some new work or want to take your mind off your own/outstanding queries? Want to help another (pretty awesome if I do say so myself, 4 out of 5 writers agree) guy make a novel great? Well, I’m looking for you!
I got my start on twitter with contests (Pitch…something in 2014) about 13 months ago. I can firmly say that contests are what got me to write constantly. The network of friends, the encouragement, the success…its a rush, it’s a high that people love and we all want to be apart of. And sometimes we rush. Some of us catch our rushing. Some of us don’t.
Below are 10 things I’ve noticed in contests. I like to think that maybe someone will bookmark this and before they enter their next contest, make sure they aren’t doing these things.
Below you will find my Query and First 250 words of my YA LGBT Contemporary, WE’RE OKAY. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.
