In November Tara Lazar, at www.taralazar.wordpress.com hosts what is known as PiBoIdMo, or picture book idea month. The reason for the challenge is to come up with an idea for a picture book each and every day for the entire month of November. I did this challenge last year and found it very helpful. It helped me focus and stay on task with my writing. Tara also posts blog entries from several different authors and illustrators throughout the month, which are very enjoyable to read. Please check out her site it is worth the visit. Next year set your calendar for the end of October to sign up for the challenge. Tara has prizes for winners of several drawings she does. It is really fun way to keep your writing going into the fall months. I would recommend it!
