My Brain After 12 x 12 in 2012

 My Brain AFTER 12 x 12 in 2012…

This is my brain AFTER 12 x 12 in 2012…an Idea Tree.

Not only did I get 12 picture book drafts out of this fabulous year    of  inspiration, encouragement, learning, and fun, I got friends and     notions and widened horizons and real possibilities all attached to      my writer’s passion and my writing dream.

My brain actually feels like this tree, and the slightest breeze    rouses rustles of imagination and the swish of story ideas.  If you’d    like to picture your own experience, go to to develop    a free image like this to use on your blog or website.  Katie Davis    shared this with me. It is neat.

If you want to have a year like I’ve had in writing, I suggest also    joining 12 x 12 in 2013! There are three levels of membership, and if    you look at a previous post of mine, you’ll see more of why your    brain, next January, could look like this tree.

    Hooray for 12 x 12! So glad your branches are far reaching, holding ideas just waiting to be leafed through. Sorry, I couldn’t help it.
