It's on again! And it's sign up week!
Are you filled with ideas but never seem to quite get them all down?
The challenge is to write down a picture book idea each day in the month of November. It doesn't have to be a complete picture book, it's just an idea. It could be a word, a phrase or the whole text.
Pop on over to Writing for Kids While Raising Them and say hi to Tara Lazar the brains behind this amazing adventure.
1. Get out!
I find so much inspiration while out and about. Ideas come from my kids and other kids. Public areas and noises that I hear.
2. Not every day.
Some days you may find you are filled with ideas I think the most I came up with on one day last year was 6. If ideas are flowing one day it allows you to take days off when other commitments require your time.
3. Jot it down.
Pop your ideas straight into your iPhone, iPad, other electronic device or go retro and write them into a notebook while you're out of the house. Some ideas are lost forever if not written down straight away.
4. Enjoy life.
Laugh a lot, sing more than you have in a while, play the craziest game you own. Release those happy endorphins to help you be more creative.
Are you game to join in?
