PiBoIdMo - Still going

Okay, I haven't posted since the 18th. I am still getting ideas, but have been very busy at the Arts and Crafts show in downtown Gatlinburg. Only one more week to go! We carve bears with a chainsaw out on the street. It makes for a long day, but we get to meet a lot of people and we can tell them about our shop. We sell our carvings too.

As soon as the show is over, I will be writing more.

Still getting ideas

Getting new ideas for picture books everyday.  I like PiBoIdMo. It makes me really think about book ideas. I am even re-reading Writing Picture Books by Ann Whitford Paul.

Day Five!

Day five. Still on track!

For the last few days I have been trying to fix the second sentence of a WIP. It reminds me of when I read about finding the right words.
The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.

PiBoIdMo day 3

It was late last night when I got Idea #2. I guess I am making it hard on myself by tossing out thoughts that aren't what I consider usable.

Maybe today's thought will come quicker.

PiBoIdMo day 2

Okay. I had a great idea for the first day. I am waiting for Idea # 2. I know it is coming I can feel it. I just don't know when it will actually pop into my head.

I'll wait.

PiBoIdMo Day 1

PiBoIdMo is here. I have my first idea. Actually I have had it for a couple of days and it is bugging me to death wanting to be written. It's a selfish idea. It thinks it is the only one, but there will be more.

Yes, I have started a first draft, but don't tell the other ideas when they come.

Do your ideas bug you to write them?
