PiBoIdMo is over. 🙁
But I am soooo glad I discovered it at just the right time!!
It was an awesome month!
PiBoIdMo, as I stated at the beginning of November, is Picture Book Idea Month. PiBoIdMo challanges the children's writer to come up with 30 picture book ideas. I took on the challange and ran with it!
Not only did I have 38 ideas by November 30th but I was once again a member of SCBWI and I also had 2 complete manuscripts...still in rough draft form and I have no idea where to send them off to when I feel they are finished but, hey, that's a LOT more than I had over a month ago!!! 🙂
I'm also trying to find some critique partners. I had three people take a look at one manuscript which was in a very rough form and it helped me refine the idea and get it headed in a better direction. My husband also bought me the 2014 Children's Book Writer's and Illustrators Guide so I can start getting a handle on what publishers are looking for in manuscripts these days.
