Topic: #SpyGate in under 700 words, an elevator pitch.
Writers have to pitch their work often. Putting a proper pitch together can be a torturous, soul crushing process, forcing you to distill a larger, vastly more nuanced and complex story down into one that’s much shorter – yet equally as compelling and entertaining.
As torturous as the process can be, when done right it forces the writer to understand the story on a deeper level. That was one of the goals of this exercise.
I wished to not only understand this vastly complex story on a deeper level, I also wanted to come up with an “elevator pitch” of #SpyGate that can be shared with others without causing their eyes to glaze over due to information overload.
So, I spent a bit of time coming up with a pitch for #SpyGate as if I were selling a book. An entertaining summary of the entire scandal, told in less than 700 words with a clear beginning, middle, and even a twist ending.
Impossible you say? Insane even?

Well, after doing it… I agree. But it’s done already so I’m sharing it and you're going to have to deal with it.
Here we go, my elevator pitch for #SpyGate in under 700 words.

I call it: Spooky Politics.
Every pitch begins with the set up, the status quo as our story begins...
Then - a complication arises which forces a change in the status quo and kick starts the action:
One important element to any great story is properly motivating your characters. Rogers' actions in April of 2016 are key to understanding the motivation for everything that happened next in the #SpyGate saga - it's crucial context which helps clarify the entire scandal:
Now, properly motivated, the Conspirators get to work solving the problems Rogers' actions caused:
Every great story has a surprising turn at the mid-point of Act II, #SpyGate is no exception...
Which leads us directly into our Act II climax, where it appears as if all hope for the Republic is lost... UNTIL:
The big twist ending, the one the Conspirators and the audience never saw coming:
The Denouement - where our narrative is resolved and unresolved questions are answered:
There we have it. #SpyGate, the most wide ranging and explosive political scandal in our nation's history boiled down to an elevator pitch... It's got spies, honeypots, high crimes and sedition, plus a twist ending!

Who wouldn't read that book?
Here is the full pitch in two images for ease of sharing and review.
