Earlier this year I signed up for the 12 x 12 in 12 challenge on Julie Hedlund's blog .
The challenge is to write 1 picture book draft a month for the year. So far this challenge is going well for me. It has also been a lot of fun.
The other day a friend of mine from work dropped the most PB idea in my lap so I have been working on that and I'm excited to see where it will end up.
I don't want to give away too much but the story happens to be about a dog. Even tough I'm a cat owner I like writing about dogs. One of my cats also acts more like a dog than a cat most days.
I love how a conversation can spark an idea. I love how listening to friends can make me say "That would make a good picture book."
Where do you get your ideas?
