pitch pitch pitch

I am trying to write a pitch for my manuscript The Uncanny Abilities of Philomena Philpott. (You know the novel I wrote that had  a publisher and then didn't.) It's silly because I lost a lot of confidence when the contract fell through with that publisher even though it had absolutely nothing to do with me. Now I am trying to give the manuscript a new home and it looks like a lot of places want a pitch. I don't pitch. I write. I procrastinate. I hide from decisions...but I definitely don't pitch.  I  guess I'll have to become a pitcher though if I want to succeed. I mean Philomena can't waste away in my cyber closet for the rest of her life, can she? That would be unkind.
