Winding up November . . . NaNoWriMo, PiBoIdMo, and Picture Book Month

Winding up November . . . NaNoWriMo, PiBoIdMo, and Picture Book Month

WOW!

What a month it has been . . .

We’ve celebrated National Novel Writing Month (I met my goal of 1,000+ words a day for a children’s novel. Not done yet–it still needs an ending. Yikes!), Picture Book Idea Month (30 new picture book ideas, one per day. Plus I ended up with a bonus–a draft of a new pic. book from one of my ideas.), and the month that we spread the gospel of the need for picture books: Picture Book Month. (I donated to the cause, did you?)

Please drop me a line and let me know what you did for your muse this month!  Also, don’t forget . . . midnight tonight is the deadline to enter the drawing to win a 2012 CWIM (Children’s Writers & Illustrator’s Market guide), through the generosity of Writer’s Digest Books and Chuck Sambuchino. (I’m extending the deadline by one more day . . . in case you all were too pooped from writing to enter before.)  Enter below!!! You must be a member of SCBWI-Michigan to win. I’ll pick the winner and notify him/her tomorrow, Dec. 3rd.

Ciao, all you tired writers!  Just think–now comes the fun part:  REVISIONS!

P.S.: If you’re in southeast Michigan you may want to attend a program I am doing at the Pittsfield Branch of the Ann Arbor District Library on Saturday, Dec. 10th about revision.

November Nurture Your Muse & Win a Free Copy of the CWIM.

November Nurture Your Muse & Win a Free Copy of the CWIM.

In honor of NaNoWriMo and PiBoIdMo I will be holding a drawing for a free copy of the newly revamped Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market  (CWIM) published by Writers Digest Books and edited by Chuck Sambuchino.

This giveaway is open to anyone who is a member of the Michigan Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrator’s (SCBWI-MI).

You do not need to be doing NaNoWriMo or PiBoIdMo.

However you must do something special for your muse this month . . . whatever it is/was, write me (use the form below) and tell me what you did that was “special.”

And you must write me by midnight Dec 1, 2011.

I will use a random number generator to choose the winner who will be notified by Dec. 3, 2011. If you have not heard by that date if you have won, then you haven’t. I will post the name of the winner on my blog.

Here’s keeping my fingers crossed for all of you, and hoping you are feeding your various muses well!
