I am getting a little bit anxious… a little bit jittery-nervous… a little bit worried…
Just 2 more sleeps, and I will be throwing myself into a 7-day writing frenzy – and I don’t know what I want to write!!!
Last month I was so excited about the prospect of NaPiBoWriWee that I flicked my hat into the ring with zest and anticipation. Seven days of intense picture book writing – a picture book a day for the first seven days of May… What FUN!
.NaPiBoWriWee is short (ummm…. well – sorta short) for National Picture Book Writing Week. It’s Paula Yoo’s answer to NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) for picture books. It’s something I know I will love – but it’s also something I know I need headspace to do. And right at this moment my head seems to be crammed full of other things.
My boys’ training… music… homework… leisure… life… housework… dinner… clutter… conversations… teaching… talking… friends…
Lots of GOOD stuff – but at such a frenzied pace it’s spun my ideas into chaos!
With two more sleeps until NaPiBoWriWee I am now at panic stations.
Maybe this is where I should hold out my hat and beg for picture book ideas, please.
