PiBoIdMo 2012!

Okay, who wants to join in on the fun?

Go to Tara Lazar's site and sign in before November 4th! and take the pledge.
See the cute little link on the top right side of my blog?
Don't you think Ward Jenkins did a great job on their logo?

I did this last year and was able to come up with 30 ideas in 30 days.

Those who register and take the pledge will be eligible for great prizes, such as:

Feedback from literary agents
Original sketches by picture book illustrators
Picture Book critiques from published authors
Signed picture books
Other cool stuff

Over at Tara's site there will be blog posts EVERY DAY  by picture book authors, illustrators, editors and other kidlit professionals to help inspire us to success at completing the challenge.

So join in on the fun!
If you are a writer, I hope you get inspired and join one of the special events taking place in November.

Novelists have NaNoWriMo
Picture Book Writers have PiBoIdMo!

Want to give it a try? Click on the logo and sign up. Who knows you might come up with a winning idea that turns into a spectacular picture book!

Leave a comment and wish me luck and I'll send good luck wishes right back at you.

How about you? Do you have any words of wisdom to share with my blogging friends?

  1. PiBoIdMo is a great idea! :-) What I love about it is that it's ideas--not actual writing. NaNo feels so rushed and hurried (probably because it's just not my style of working, so I don't participate), but coming up with ideas -- you can never have too many of those. Then the rest of the year, you get to bring them to life and flesh them out. The best to you, Janet!

  2. Thanks, Barbara! I hope you can join. I could never write 50,000 words in a month, so I stick with shorter stories.

  3. Glad to have you on board again this year, Janet!

  4. Glad to have you on board again this year, Janet!

  5. Love that quote! And I'm glad there's PiBoIdMo to go along with NaNo. I don't do PBs, but I really like that there's something for everyone.


Thank you for your comments. I love comments!
