Unusual Pitch Role Models
Ron at Galley Cat recently took part in a presentation on how writers can improve their pitches. Read the entire article about his chat here.
The part of this article that really caught my attention was when Ron mentioned three prologues as effective pitches. One of his suggestions, Romeo & Juliet was definitely literary. But the other two ideas were distinctly pop culture. “The opening credits to old TV shows fulfill much the same function: Kirk’s opening statement on Star Trek, or the theme song to Gilligan’s Island,” Ron writes. “They tell you what the show’s about, but they don’t give away so much of the story that you feel you’ve already heard it all.”
