PiBoIdMo Bliss

Picture Book Idea Month (PiBoIdMo) just wrapped up. I’m happy to say I managed 30 book ideas in the time allotted. A few are pretty darned good and I’ve already started molding them into manuscripts. 😉

It’s Picture Book Idea Month again!


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.
