Needless to say, everyone is a little wound up about 2017. I mean a little worse than the usual year-end angst. I’d like to invite all you writers to step into the New Year with Storystorm.
Back in November you might have missed PiBoIdMo or Picture Book Idea Month sponsored by Tara Lazar. Unfortunately, as I remember correctly, Tara has been having some health problems and needed to postpone this annual event. She also took the opportunity to expand it to a greater variety of participants.
Obviously, Picture Book Idea Month was also about generating picture book story ideas. Storystorm expands this to include any writing genre. I guess I should admit that as far as I’m concerned, an idea is an idea. I may think it is a picture book idea but it turns into middle grade nonfiction. So I’m pretty jazzed about this change.
The goal if for participants to end the month of January with 30 fresh, new story ideas. What a great way to start the year!
Registration begins the day of Christmas, December 26th. You can register through the first week of January. You don’t have to register, but participants who do are eligible to win agent consultations, books, critiques, and more. The link above will take you to Tara’s blog for more information.
So if you’re looking forward to an excellent writing year in 2017, why not start it with Storystorm?
