National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)
Picture Book Idea Month! (PiBoIdMo. Read more about it here.)
I'm doing both. (Or trying to, at least.)
Why not? I like deadlines. I need deadlines. I especially need deadlines when it comes to writing. We'll see if I can keep it up for the whole month. But even if not, writing something is better than writing nothing. And though I never write nothing, I can always write more. Right?
(Of course, once I committed to giving these two worthwhile activities a shot, a Department of Freelance truism kicked in... lots of good things are sprouting around here. Busy, busy, busy. Just the way I like it!)
