Its National Picture Book Writing Week (or NaPiBoWriWee)! This amazing challenge, hosted every May 1-7th by author Paula Yoo is a fun event created to encourage people to stop procrastinating and actually write and FINISH a rough draft of a picture book.
But to challenge everyone, Paula made it an entire week. So from May 1st to May 7th every year, you must write 7 picture books in 7 days!
I, myself, have been in a creative funk lately. Nothing seems to inspire me. Everything bores me. Therefore, I am taking part in NaPiBoWriWee to break though this slump! And so far, its worked! I wrote Draft #1 and am working on Draft #2 today.
Sound like fun? Well its not too late to join! Head over to Paula's blog at http://paulayoo.com/napi/ and get writing!
This all brings me to this week's Weigh In...
