    I just finished a 40 chapter serial story for the Jewish Press, based on my own childhood in South Africa and relocation to Canada.

    I want to develop it into a book but also thinking ahead for my next serial.  I submitted a pitch to a magazine

    which they turned down although kindly provided this explanation:

    “We need more of a plot and drama happening for a serialized novel. Also we like more upbeat stories.”

    Maybe my pitch was too brief and didn’t sound upbeat enough.

    Now looking for suggestions of plot, drama and upbeat!
