Should I give the original idea up, or frame it in a different way?
I’m currently researching the magazine I want to send a pitch to - Happiful. They have a Real Life section that I would like to contribute to. In the current issue it mentions a real life story that deals with newborn deaths and there’s an article about Sands as it is their awareness month next month.
I haven’t even started writing a pitch yet, but my story starts with me having a miscarriage as the backdrop to the main event that I want to focus the article on. Should I abandon the idea or pitch it in a different way?
