Tired of novelists having all the fun in November with NaNoWriMo, I created PiBoIdMo as a 30-day challenge for picture book writers. The challenge is to create 30 picture book ideas in 30 days. You don’t have to write a manuscript (but you can if the mood strikes). You don’t need potential best-seller ideas. You might think of a clever title. Or a name for a character. Or just a silly thing like “purple polka-dot pony.” The object is to heighten your picture-book-idea-generating senses. Ideas may build upon other ideas and your list of potential stories will grow stronger as the days pass.

Personally, I'm fairly certain something like this is just what I need to make the leap - in my writing AND my mind - into writing children's books. And a bonus? There is NO way I'll be 20,000 words short on December 1!
I'm pretty excited about this new adventure I'm planning to take on in November. I'm praying that, by the end of the month, I'll know if picture books are truly where God is calling me to use His writing gift to me.
