Changing Course in 2014

As usual in the beginning of the year I think of all the millions of things that I want to do and this year I’m going to start with focusing on one thing.  It’s a huge thing, sort of overwhelming at times, but, I think I need to do it …… and it will consume the whole year.

For the past two years I’ve been participating in PiBoIdMo (Picture Book Idea Month) held in November – which is a challenge that Tara Lazar has organized. So, now I have two files of ideas, about 65 in all (not all good ideas) and it seems there ought to be something worth pursuing. http://taralazar.com

This year I’ve joined Julie Hedlund’s group – 12 x 12 in 2014, which is a writing challenge to write 12 children’s book drafts during the year, one a month, from the ideas generated in the aforementioned idea challenge. http://www.juliehedlund.com/

So I’m challenged and motivated to get some work done this year.

  1. How is it going? Have you got the 1st draft of a book, as January is over? I think it’s a lovely way to stay motivated, so I hope you will have lots to show us at the end of 2014! K.

    1. Thanks for asking! Yes, I did get a draft done in January – it’s a true – ish story, sort of a folklore book about a dog. Plus I revised a draft that I’ve been revising all last year. Hopefully I’ll have some drawings and paintings to put up soon. It’s very motivating, hope I can keep motivated.:)
