Picture Book Idea Month


Most of you probably know that I do not participate in NaNoWriMo.  In fact, being a bit of a punk, I tend to call it No-No Wri Mo.

But I love to brainstorm so every November I take part in PiBoIdMo or Picture Book Idea Month.  The goal?  To brainstorm 30 picture book ideas in 30 days.  This isn’t about writing 30 picture books in 30 days because that would be craziness.  Nope.  Come up with 30 ideas.

Given the fact that the Missouri SCBWI conference is in November and so it Thanksgiving, this is muchmore do-able for all of your Moms and wives and writers who are gearing up for the craziness that is December.

Write yourself a note to register on October 24th.  There are prizes and interviews and all kinds of inspiration. You can find more out at Tara Lazar’s blog.
