Last week I found out that the university was running something called the Big Pitch… I’ve had this idea for a key stage 3/4 Tudor colouring book. It is still in a planning stage although I have done a load of the drawings.
So I did the Big Pitch
3 minutes for a presentation in front of a number of people; bankers and business people.
Then a wait…
Then I was told – you have got it!
What? I didn’t really believe it.
You have got it.
So for 3 minutes and an awful lot of nerves I have been given some cash and an office to get the idea off the ground.
Thank you Swansea University!
It does mean that I don’t need to get a job. That I can continue to write, for this year at least. And hopefully the colouring book will get out of the planning stages and into production.
Now I have got to work on distribution…
