It’s that time of year again where you can challenge yourself for the whole month of November. Today is the last chance to sign up, as it starts on the 1st November 2012.
What’s the challenge?
It’s PiBoIdMo 2012 organised by the inspirational Tara Lazar – it means on everyday of November you have to come up with an idea for a picture book.
Just the idea, that is all. How hard can that be? Surprisingly enough, some days it can be quite tricky! If you can write a first draft from that idea, even better but not necessary.
I entered PiBoIdMo 2011 last year – it was my first writing challenge I had ever entered. Out of the 30 days of ideas I managed to come up with, I have turned two picture book concepts into fully fledged manuscripts. Both are now out there in some slushpile waiting to be picked up, loved and wanted (hopefully I say with fingers crossed!)
All you need is:
- a little imagination
- a pen and notebook or computer
- cup of tea and biscuit
