    1. I'm fairly horrible at them as well~ the ones with strict word rules (no more than 30 words, etc.)leave me sweating and spending way too much time trying to condense 7 words into 2 words, etc.

  3. Hope you have a great weekend too, Jess!

    I think we all feel the same way about pitches - they're so difficult to write, and I'm never quite sure that I have them right. I don't have anything to submit to either of these contests, but it's still worthwhile to check out the other entrants!
