Lighting Up Ideas

PiBoIdMo 2013

Anticipation. What a feeling! I’m ready to turn on the switch in November for Tara Lazar’s PiBoIdMo 2013...a month of picture book ideas that carries me into a frenzy of bright creativity, with some discouraging duds that will never really inhabit a pixel, some brilliant ideas that will flourish into a full-fun story.

Daily encouragement by illustrators, authors, and other participants brings light to the writer’s brain. M y last year’s 30 ideas have produced at least half a dozen picture books to date, and I’m still referring to that collection of new-book-idea notions.

Tara shines…it’s the fifth year for this event, and who knows what great stories will brighten kids eyes because of her passion for helping other writers.

    I’ve daydreamed of writing something simple for kids. Glad you are involved. Recently I’ve been contemplating starting a writing blog for one of my other ideas (not for kids but quasi-novelish for hobby). But also considered kid stuff many times.
