Tara Lazar, founder of PiBoIdMo and talented author!

Kirsti Call: I first became aware of Tara Lazar when I joined her Picture Book Idea Month (PiBoIdMo) challenge.  What a wonderful way to connect with other writers in a common goal–one picture book idea a day for the entire month of November!  Last year I wrote an entire post about PiBoIdMo, and this year, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to interview Tara and learn from her insights!
How did you come up with the idea for PiBoIdMo?
Tara Lazar: It was an idea born of jealousy! (All the best ideas are, right?)
All those NaNoWriMo people, having so much fun, sharing their successes, inspiring one another. I wanted to be part of it, but I did not want to write 1500 words a day!
What’s a PB girl to do?
I had to devise my own challenge. And at that point, in 2008, it was a challenge just for me. And maybe my critique partner, Corey Rosen Schwartz.
