Most writers have so many story ideas collecting dust on post it notes and in their head. But do you sometimes come across a great idea, scribble it down and forget about it? Or do you struggle to remember who you’ve pitched, and fail to follow up with editors? If so, a proper system will organise your ideas and help you get more pitches over the line. And that’s where our pitch tracker comes in.
This user-friendly excel spreadsheet is a great way to keep track of everything from burgeoning story ideas to client proposals. Interactive graphs show your ‘pitch hit rate’ (which goes up with every story you sell!). And it’s easy to use it to also monitor pitches at every stage, whether they’re in limbo, at research stage or commissioned. You can also jot down feedback you’ve received on a pitch and re-angle it for a new client or publication.
Easily one of our most popular downloads, the pitch tracker guarantees you’ll never let a great story idea go to waste again.
