Behind The Story From Pitch To Publish
Spokane, Washington USA August 17, 2020
Looking up I could see I had mere seconds before it was my turn to pitch my story to Brendan Deneen, the Editor for MacMillan Publishing behind the hit series The Walking Dead. I finished scribbling the last line and did the best to hide that I was still out of breath and shaking from running across Manhattan. To my horror I had thirty seconds before I was on my feet, giving the pitch I had just finished. After my pitch I looked at him, and he eyed me a moment before stating, “You could write that story poorly and it would still sell. When it’s ready I want it.” A wave of validation coursed through my whole body—he had just answered the two questions I had come for. Was I cut out for this, and is there something to the geography of genius? Is opportunity and excellence more accessible in certain places? Answered. Both of them. But now the next question. What matters more: motive, or outcome? It would all come down to execution. A golden premise on a silver platter. Would I blow this opportunity? Only time would tell.
Four years later, after internalizing the reality that novel writing and screenwriting are converging, I employed the method and structure of both to arrive at a polished manuscript. The story’s development and pace surprised me, many of the components weaving themselves in a process of flow I can only express as miraculous. The emotional development and arc of all the characters impressed me with the sensation that this story has true potential. After all this time, I believe I have my answer. I’m proud of this one. It has legs, it can actually go somewhere.
