I just created my PiBoIdMo electronic folder. That folder now has one sub-folder holding my Day One idea – yay! It will be inspiring to see 30 sub-folders by the end of the month and be able to cherry-pick the best to work on. Now, I am not planning to write full drafts of each idea. That would be crazy! It was hard enough to do that for a week during NaPiBoWriWee. But I am making sure I have more than just a title. I’m fleshing out the idea a bit with bullet points, particular lines I might want to use, links to research I might refer back to, etc. That way when I go back
months weeks from now, I’ll remember what the idea was all about in the first place.
But that’s just me. I’m sure others will approach the task differently. So I ask you, fellow PiBoIdMo-ers, what, if any, strategies are you employing to get your ideas down this month? Anyone planning to write drafts as they go? Anyone going with a title and that’s it? I’m curious to know how others are tackling the assignment. I’m glad to be taking this ride with others, that’s for sure!
Also, good luck to all you NaNo-ers. I hope to be among your ranks next year.Categories: Children's Books, PiBoIdMo, Picture Books, Works in Progress, Writing · Tags: PiBoIdMo, Picture Books, Writing
