Somehow, it’s that time of year again. May! #NaPiBoWriWee – writing a picture book a day for the first week of May.
Only problem being… I forgot!
In my head I still had another month to prepare. Only remembered half-way through Day One. Had NO idea of what to write about. Didn’t know where to start!!! (That was where the panic set in.)
Thankfully, @jimhill tweeted a lifesaver (though he didn’t know it at the time) about #PiBoIdMo that I completed in November – a picture book *idea* every day for the month of November. Suddenly I had ideas!!! Forty-five ideas. At 5pm I sat down to write… Continue reading
The light is glowing brightly – and it’s not just the light that I’ve been burning into the night to get my PBs done. No – this is the light at the end of the tunnel as National Picture Book Writing Week (NaPiBoWriWee) draws to a close. It’s been so much fun participating. I’m loving the sense of accomplishment and community – and meeting lots of lovely people on the way! 🙂

You know that #NaPiBoWriWee – (Inter)National Picture Book Writing Week – that I signed up for? Well… I have just bagged my fourth story, and I’m passed half way. Hurray!
I almost couldn’t have chosen a busier week if I tried. Seems like I’ve been writing into the night a lot.
Day One: Sentimental story about a boy and his chook. Inspired by a complilation of my boys’ quotes that I found in the week prior to NaPiBoWriWee. (What a boon that was.) The story is finished – but by no means right! (This after I pondered for 6hrs over one point before I could move on.) I think with this one, reality was getting in the way of creativity.
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!
