Picture Book Idea Month (PiBoIdMo) 2013

Last year I tried PiBoIdMo as an experiment. I wanted to see if I could concentrate for 30 days straight on my children's fiction. No excuses. No days off. 

Not only did I survive, I came up with more than 30 story ideas. (I checked my 2012 notebook this morning and had written 36 ideas!) Now, I'll admit some were better than others and some are still percolating, but I developed full fledged stories from 5 of them. And have several more to begin work on.

Have you committed to PiBoIdMo 2013? What have you got to lose? (I even won a book via the contest last year.) The motivation of knowing we are all pulling in the same direction for a solid month is fun and exciting. Even I keep up with the blogs and comments on Facebook. (For me, a feat in itself!) Consider this your nudge to give PiBoIdMo a try. If you're like me, you'll be surprised and excited by your productivity. - Q
