I entered my first writing contest last week, Pitch Wars. And wow, what an experience. I don’t normally participate much on Twitter, but these past few days, I just couldn’t help myself from checking out the Pitch Wars feed. It’s amazing to see the buzz and excitement in the writing community.
I entered my YA novel, Hunter High, which is a horror/humour/mystery mash-up, with a sprinkle of romance. I had such a blast writing this book because it’s completely different than what I do professionally (educational content for kids). I didn’t have to worry about curriculum connections, age appropriateness, etc. I threw down words like blood, brain-bashing and hell with ease.
I’m not a psycho. Seriously. I just like horror.
