#PitchWars Mentee Interview - Lyndsay Ely

Hi, everyone!

This is the next interview for the mentees of Pitch Wars! It will be a series through the month of October, so be sure to check back to learn a bit more about some of the mentees and their Pitch Wars stories so far!

In case you're curious about what Pitch Wars is, learn more here

What is your name? Your mentor’s name? Your team name?
Lyndsay Ely, Elizabeth Briggs, #TeamBriggs

What is your Twitter handle?
@lyndsayely

Describe your manuscript in tweet-like format (no more than 140 characters).
In a decadent, lawless city, a gunslinger girl becomes a theatre sharpshooter. But the price for her new life is higher then she expects.

What is the #1 thing you’ve learned so far in Pitch Wars?
There are a lot of animated gifs on the internet.

What is your guilty pleasure food/drink when writing?
2 or 3 simultaneous drinks (coffee, soda, and wine being the preferred trinity)

What is the theme song for your MC(s)? Why? What about for your villain(s)?
For my MC, I guess I have to say "Pistolero" by Juno Reactor, for obvious reasons. For my "villain"(intriguing quotes are intriguing), Shirley Bassey's "Dangerous Games."

You're stranded on a desert island. You have no provisions, but you are with three of your favorite characters (either in your MS or elsewhere). They each promise they can help you survive. Who are they?
Seriously, is anyone not going to say Hermione here? Her, obviously. Also, Katsa from GRACELING (yeah, bit of a cheat). And how about Arya Stark, to round out the inhabitants of Tough Chick Island.
