For writers, Novermber is novel writing month. The challenge is to write a certain number of words a day and by the end of the month you'll have a first draft of a novel!
As I am interested in children's books, I discovered PIBoIDMo!
The challenge is to have one picture book idea a day for a month. Fantastic!
I already have a few and so far the guest posts are fantastic jump starts for ways to come up with ideas for picture books.
After last month I realize everything good takes time, and I am just starting out on this children's illustration journey. I'll keep getting on the bicycle and try to learn from others as well.
Another great resource I found for the journey is http://willterry.blogspot.com/
Will Terry shares his experience in the business of illustration and the changes to the industry over the last couple of decades.
I am looking forward to all the exciting things happening this month and hope I can pick a focus and maintain. :)
