I’m now participating in 12×12 in 2012, a picture book writing challenge headed by Julie Hedlund. That means I will try to write 12 picture book drafts in 12 months in 2012. One rough draft per month. When I participated in November’s Picture Book Idea Month (PiBoIdMo), I really liked having a deadline and a community of writers for encouragement. Since I didn’t write very many new stories last year, I decided to join the challenge. I think I work better under pressure with a deadline. If you’d like to join this fun picture book writing campaign, head on over to Julie’s blog and sign up! (Just click on the badge)
