PiBoIdMo 2012 – I did it!

Picture Book Idea Month 2012 – 30 picture book ideas in 30 days – whew! It was a lot of fun. I almost didn’t do it. Time is short and the “one more thing” gloomy bug started to creep in. Shooed that little naysayer away and signed up. I am so glad I did.
It never fails, ideas come popping in like unannounced company. Backs of envelopes, trimmed paper, post its, receipts and the like were commandeered to stand in until I made it to wherever the notebook was hiding.
I just kept entering without keeping track. I counted the last week to see if I made it. Thirty-six, really? Recount, yep, thirty-six! Funny thing, those little scraps keep appearing.
Perhaps next year, they’ll go straight to the notebook. Nah, probably not! I think my ideas like to free range a bit.

  1. Congratulations and Thank you for visiting my blog. There is so much of warmth and love in what you do, how you do.
    I hope we keep in touch which gives me a chance to drop by once in a while. My dark humor gets on my nerves sometimes…LOL


  2. You write well, Mary. I can easily imagine that month – the post it notes and scraps of paper and your surprise when you found you’d easily exceeded the requirement. My favorite is your line about free range ideas. I can only imagine how inspirational the actual stories will/would be if you pursue them.


Let me know what you think!
