November is right around the corner! Ahh, yes, a bucket of Halloween candy to feast upon after the kids have gone to bed (anything chocolate-peanut butter is Momma’s!). Fall Philly!! Holiday preparations. And 30 days of picture book ideas!
Author, super-blogger, SCBWI RA and mom Tara Lazar is about to commence her 6th year of Picture Book Idea Month (PiBoIdMo), a fun counterpart to National Novel Writer’s Month. Each day, an inspiring guest blog post by a picture book author and/or illustrator is featured. The point is to get inspired, keep a notebook of daily ideas that you can work on the whole year through, and learn from some really cool people! Oh, and there are PRIZES for registered participants, including pitches to agents and editors. So, if you write picture books and haven’t done so yet, check it out! Click on Tara’s blog, Writing for Kids While Raising Them, and be inspired!
I participated last year for the first time, and I learned so much. Alas, this November is too hectic for me, but I plan to read the daily blogs and jot down a few ideas if they decide to pop in.
So, if you are going to PiBo, comment and let us know so we can all cheer you on!
