I recently sent off a couple of picture book stories to an agent who requested them (i.e., excitement/terror personified) and was thinking I didn't have anything new to work on, but then came PiBoIdMo and the ideas started flooding in.
It is only Day 2 and I already have 4 new picture book ideas outlined. AMAZING!!! Letting the muse come out and play was all it took!
Still looking for a holiday motivator? There is still time to sign up for PiBoIdMo 2012.
