This month went by so fast I almost forgot it’s time for 12 x 12 in 2012 participants to check in! Did you complete a picture book draft in May? I am very pleased to say I did. Mine required a great deal of research, and I started to worry I wouldn’t have time to write the actual draft. But I did, and I’m feeling pretty good about it. I did not, however, end up participating in National Picture Book Writing Week (NaPiBoWriWee), but congratulations to those who did.
Another huge thanks to Debbie Diesen – our May featured author. If you missed her May 1st post giving tips on how to write rhyming picture books, it is a MUST read. If you left a comment on that post, you are automatically entered to win a critique from Debbie, regardless of whether you completed a PB draft this month.
If you did complete a draft in May, let us know in the comments and that will get you another entry. 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 June 1st to leave a comment on this post and/or the May 1st post to be eligible for the drawing.
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow to meet our June authorl!!Categories: 12 x 12 Featured Author, Authors, Giveaway, Goals, Picture Books, Poetry, Rhyming, Works in Progress, Writing · Tags: 12 x 12 Featured Author, 12 x 12 in 2012, Critiques, Debbie Diesen, Giveaway, Goals, Julie Hedlund, Picture Books, Rhyming, Works in Progress, Writer, Writing
