The month of November is always hectic and to add to the usual hecticness is Nanowrimo [National Novel Writing Month]and now PiBoIdMo [Picture Book Idea Month], both of which I wanted to participate in. This year was more difficult because I had to take precious time out because of a hand injury, which is healing now, thank goodness.
As usual, I didn’t finish Nanowrimo but am okay with that because I did finish PiBoIdMo.
It’s been difficult to get the badge inserted somewhere so I’m posting it here now.
The creator of PiBoIdMo is Tara Lazar and she hosted daily guest posts on her blog which were very insightful and inspiring: http://taralazar.com/
The idea is to come up with an idea a day for the month of November. Since it wasn’t necessary to actually write the whole book every day, it was do-able and I exceeded the goal. Some of the ideas might actually pan out. I sure hope so. In the mean time I’m still working on a tree frog book, now with several more ideas to follow.
Thanks to Tara and all her guest authors and illustrators.
P.S. Last night’s fortune cookie: “Right now there’s an energy pushing you in a new direction.”
