More Pitch Wars Questions and Answers

Hi there! Back for more. People seemed to like my first round of Q&A, so I answered some more questions that I either saw in the feed or made up myself. Isn’t being a writer great? You can just make stuff up, and people call it art. In this case, it’s more like ‘psychotic ramblings.’...
