Writing for Kids? Need Inspiration? Try PiBoIdMo (Picture Book Idea Month)

Picture Book Idea Month Official Participant
L
ast year, while making a sad attempt at NaNoWriMo with a couple of my writer friends, I discovered PiBoIdMo, which asks you to think of 30 picture book ideas in 30 days. I’ll be honest, this is a much better fit for me than NaNoWriMo.

PiBoIdMo was created by Tara Lazar as the alternative to NaNoWriMo for picture book authors.

Tired of watching novelists have all the fun in November with NaNoWriMo, I created PiBoIdMo as a 30-day challenge for picture book writers.

Last year, I stumbled upon Tara’s website a little too late in the month to be a participant, but I did enjoy making my very first list of ideas. This year, I’m excited to be joining in on the fun for the entire month, and maybe I’ll be lucky enough to win one of the dreamy prizes (signed books, original art, agent feedback, critiques and more)!

During PiBoIdMo, Tara’s website will also feature guest posts by authors, illustrators and industry insiders.

If you have any interest in writing picture books for kids, you should check it out. It’s a fantastic way to get the creative juices flowing. Here is the link to this year’s registration information: PiBoIdMo 2015 Registration is Open!

Happy brainstorming!
