The challenge is to think of one picture book idea a day. Daunting? Yes! But not nearly as daunting as writing an entire 50,000 word novel in one month.
Tara Lazar, the founder of PiBoIdMo, told me that nearly 1800 people registered for PiBoIdMo this year. As a community we’re coming up with a bazillion ideas!
This is my 3rd year participating in this challenge and sometimes I feel like every idea is a bust. A sun with a fever? A tire that gets car sick? Who would want to read about A leaf that is scared of falling off the tree? But as Josh Funk emphasized in his PiBoIdMo post, sometimes it’s the most terrible ideas that make the best books!Here are 3 ways to get your ideas flowing.
