Every day when I read my Storystorm post, I think, “Really, Cathy, you should let your readers know about this little gem!” Now here it is, rolling into the end of the month, and I’m just now mentioning it. Better late than never, huh?
Storystorm, over at Tara Lazar’s blog, is what used to be PiBoIdMo (Picture Book Idea Month) which ran every November. It’s still packed with great advice about generating story ideas, and yes, much of that advice comes from picture book authors. But that doesn’t mean you have to come up with picture book ideas.
I’ve got a couple of Middle Grade book ideas, a chapter book or two, stories, nonfiction stories, and yes, a handful of picture book sparks. What better way to start the year than with these idea-inspiring posts, and the–at last count–25 ideas that I can pluck out of my notebook and work on throughout the year!
So it may be too late to sign up for all the great prizes. But really, there’s a prize in every post. All you have to do is read ’em!
