Pi Bo Id Mo: Throw me a deadline & I will write a story

Pi Bo Id Mo: Throw me a deadline & I will write a story.

Hurray!  Children’s author Emily Lim, the awesome lady who invited me to speak at the 2013 Asian Festival of Children’s Content in Singapore, is joining PiBoIdMo!

PiBoIdMo is the perfect launching pad for picture book writers…not only will you create a notebook of 30 ideas that might someday become award-winners…you will also be exposed to over 500 (YES, 500) energized writers and illustrators who will be sharing tips and helpful information in posts (on Tara Lazar’s blog and in their own) and in the comments (I know, scrolling through hundreds of comments on each post takes time…but it is time well-spent…there are always excellent nuggets of knowledge lurking there). 

The Bible says something about if two or three are gathered  There IS power in community…and here we have over 500 gathering…don’t you feel the energy?

Haven’t signed up yet?  What are you waiting for?

    • Hi Jarm…I just retrieved you from the spam folder.:( Glad I was checking there! Thanks for stopping by…I’m excited about PiBoIdMo…as much for the camaraderie you speak of as for the creative ideas it will generate. 🙂


  1. Congrats for joining the challenge and good luck!

    I thought about joining this year, but besides being already overloaded with work projects and personal issues, I don’t think I can find 30 book ideas, and I’m not sure I want to. I already have about 5 children’s book ideas and I think they’re all good ones, so I wouldn’t want to spend time looking for more ideas. What I think is finding the time to focus on 2 or 3 of these books. Time, what is that???


    • Yes, Milka…we have to make choices, that’s for sure!  It’s awesome that you have a couple of pb ideas that you are excited about. 🙂  And time…if I find any extra, I’ll be sure to send it over to you. 🙂   


    • For me, one of the most exciting things is the realization that there are hundreds of talented writers and illustrators who will be taking out their notebooks and pens every day…JUST LIKE ME!  The combined energy is sure to provide all of us with addtional motivation and inspiration. 🙂   


    • You bet I will. 🙂 🙂 They are paying my airfare and hotel…and it is an opportunity I cannot let pass by…a chance to participate in an international conference…and share my passion for using picture books to build self-esteem and literacy skills. 🙂 I’m excited and scared!
