#PitchWars Mentee Interview - Monica Hoffman

Hi, everyone!

This is the first 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?
      My name is Monica Hoffman. My mentor is the wonderful Wendy Spinale. And our team name is TeamDG4L (Disney Girls for Life)

What is your Twitter handle?
      @mmhoffman14

Describe your manuscript in tweet-like format (no more than 140 characters).
AVATAR meets ENDER'S GAME where 17yo pilot seeks source behind humanoid robot sentient glitch, risking exile & her heart.

What is the #1 thing you’ve learned so far in Pitch Wars?
Revising is HARD work. It is not for the faint of heart. You will kill more darlings than you ever thought possible. What you thought about your MS going in will be questioned and you better have a good reason why you have unnecessary characters/scenes or why you broke a grammar rule.

What is your guilty pleasure food/drink when writing?
      Cherry coke and coffee. Not much of a snack eater.

What is the theme song for your MC(s)? Why? What about for your villain(s)?
      Survival by Muse for my MC. Not sure about the villain.

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?
Katniss Everdeen; Evie Thornhill; and A.I. 1408 (last two from my MS)
