I mentioned PiBoIdMo 2015 in my October Wrap Up. I kept ignoring the reminders on Facebook and other places like my inbox that this was coming up. The last year hasn't gone so well for my picture book writing. I'm barely getting a few posts on here, let alone writing or editing manuscripts.
But as I sat reading to my son the other day - one of my favorite picture books:
I had a great idea for a picture book pop into my head and well..... okay, I drug out the 2014 PiBoIdMo notebook and wrote it down...and then thought about it. Maybe- MAYBE - I could participate. I glanced at the first page in my notebook...
Well, THAT's not going to happen.
But maybe if I changed my goals?? So I signed up.... and rather than ordering a new notebook because that's just ridiculous - I never filled up the 2014.... I'll just start the second half... and write in new goals.
So- here it is. First of all- KISS (keep it simple silly)
- Read all posts by Saturday of each week (no way can I do it daily).
- Do exercises (if applicable to my current writing goals/ideas by Sunday.
- Write a minimum of one idea daily (7 a week) or add more details to an already listed idea.
- Make an honest attempt of writing a minimum of 30 minutes a week.
I think I kept it simple?
What are your PiBoIdMo goals this year?
