What Do Picture Book Writers Do during NaNoWriMo?

It’s that time of year again.  Leaves are changing.  We’re shopping the sales for candy to nibble on while we write.  And a bunch of people are drafting an entire novel in one month.  But what do you do if you’re a picture book writer?  Or if you simply have no interest in writing a novel in only 31 days?

You sign up for PiBoIdMo — Picture Book Idea Month.

Sponsored by picture book author Tara Lazar, Picture Book Idea Month, or PiBoIdMo, encourages picture books writers to brainstorm ideas.  The goal is to come up with 30 picture book ideas in 30 days.  Given the fact that I have 3 deadlines in November and will have to good and clean and actually pay attention to my family, this seems like a much wiser path to me.  Besides, I love brainstorming.

All you have to do to join in the fun is sign up here.

There will be inspirational blog posts as well as opportunities to check in.  I’m not sure how many people have signed up for that other challenge, but I was #312.

Why not join in the fun and develop some ideas to keep you busy in 2013?
