IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE

Look at that. I blinked and November is gone. But I did it. Thanks to Tara Lazar’s PBIDMO (Picture Book Idea Month) I spent 30 days brainstorming ideas for picture books. I love a challenge. I love brainstorming. I love that PBIDMO gave me the permission (something I can give myself but which seems to carry more weight when it comes from an external source) to dedicate a whole month to idea generation. On November 1st, my inner critic packed her bags and went on a 30-day cruise to who knows where, leaving me free to come up with some whacky, wonderful, stinky and stumpy ideas. Best of all, I had such fun doing it. I managed to come up with at least one idea a day – some mere titles, others more substantial, but I believe that I have two zinger ideas that I will tackle in January. Go me!

 

Thanks Tara and thanks to all your guest bloggers for such inspirational and insightful posts.

Knowing that ANY idea counts makes it a lot easier. Funny how when you put judgement on hold, ideas are a lot less shy.

I know what you mean. I must have gone through a hundred real stinkers before I came up with the ten titles for the '...my Homework' MG series I'm working on :)
