HOW is it November 30th already? Just ONE MONTH left in the 12 x 12 in 2012 challenge!
I know I keep promising to deliver more information on 12 x 12 in 2013, and I will. I WILL! I am shoveling as hard as I can to unbury myself and get everything ready. It will probably come as no surprise that registration will not open tomorrow as originally planned, but I am shooting for December 5. Registration will also stay open through February, so never fear — there will be plenty of time.
And I know many of you are more than prepared after completing the always amazing Picture Book Idea Month (PiBoIdMo) and getting inspired by the Picture Book Month posts about why picture books matter. Have those ideas ready. You’re going to need them soon!
So, now is the time to let us know if you completed your picture book draft in November. I have not (yet), but I’ve had it written in my head for days, so I hereby commit to getting it on paper before the day is done. Please remember to leave a comment on the post from our November featured author — Linda Arms White — one of my own mentors. If you do, you’ll automatically be entered to win a FREE critique from her regardless of whether you completed a PB draft this month.
If you did complete a draft, let us know in the comments and that will get you another entry toward Linda’s critique. YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR NAME (FIRST AND LAST) IN YOUR COMMENT IF YOU WANT IT TO BE COUNTED AS AN ENTRY. You have until midnight EST December 1st to leave a comment on this post and the November 1st post to be eligible for the drawing.
Be sure to come back tomorrow to meet our December (and final) featured author for the 12 x 12 in 2012 challenge. You will NOT be disappointed!Categories: 12 x 12 Featured Author, 12 x 12 in 2012, Authors, Giveaway, Goals, PiBoIdMo, Picture Book Month, Picture Books, SCBWI, Works in Progress, Writing · Tags: 12 x 12 in 2012, 12 x 12 Monthly Check-In, Author, Giveaway, Goals, Julie Hedlund, Linda Arms White, PiBoIdMo, Picture Book Month, Picture Books, SCBWI, Works in Progress, Writing
