I woke up to a party going on in my writing blog world. It is official, we are half way through the 12 Picture books in 12 months in 2012 writing challenge. I have previously written about it here in my New Year – New Goals post.
So, have I managed to write a picture book manuscript each month so far? Thankfully the answer to that is yes! And the very reason that I can keep coming up with new ideas each month is what is actually keeping me going. Because sometimes you do start to doubt yourself (am I wasting my time, am I actually any good at this, what if I run out of ideas, blah, blah, blah) But I do keep coming up with new ideas and this is what keeps me going. Here are some of the story ideas I have written about so far:
January – A young boy is looking for clean undies…
February – Florence loves the library but…
March – Farley the fox has trouble doing something that all foxes should be able to do.
April – A little penguin is determined to be able to fly just like his friends.
May – A caterpillar and a tadpole are the best of friends and help each other when something very strange happens to them!
June – Letters go back and forth between a father and his daughter in 1929.
Happy writing and thanks for stopping by!
Due to a lot of discussion on our 12 x 12 Facebook page I have cut my story pitches back. This is because posting whole stories or pitch ideas may be copied by others or make them invalid for publishing as they have already been seen. This may mean that some of your lovely comments below might not make as much sense, sorry!
