It’s official! I’ve signed up to for the 12 x 12 in 2012 Challenge hosted by Julie Hedlund!
What is this challenge all about?
The premise is simple. Write 12 full picture books (with a beginning, middle, and end) in 2012. It’s ok if they’re not submission ready. The idea is just to put pen to page, while motivating yourself and other writers in the process. You can even earn prizes!! How about that?
I know, I know — writing 12 full length picture books sounds like a daunting task, but as long as you have the intention of completing them, it’s worthwhile to sign up! I have heard of so many writers’ success stories from their PiBoIdMo ideas, including its founder, Tara Lazar.
So far I have have completed one story in 2012 for the 12x12in12 Challenge, and two from the PiBoIdMo 2011 Challenge. Who knows? Maybe one of them may be my next published story…
Good luck to everyone, whatever your 2012 endeavors might be. Enjoy the process!
