Adding On

I'm adding on!

Adding on what? you might ask. Adding on to our house? (Oh, don't I wish!) Adding on pounds? (Could be but I hope not.) A new addition to the family? (Oh, gosh, no. We're getting close to end of the child-rearing years. I'd hate to start all over again.) So what am I adding on? I am adding another challenge to my November list.

Remember on Sunday's post where I mentioned I am participating in a poem-a-day challenge (November Chapbook Challenge at Poetic Asides)? What? You didn't read that. Are you serious???? Get to it!

In that post I mentioned that I would participate in NaNoWriMo if I had just a bit more time. I have a great idea for a middle reader chapter book that I am eager to start, but I just don't think I could complete the challenge. I also have a few other children's writing projects in mind (non-fiction articles, picture books, etc.)

Anyway, at the end of Sunday's post I asked my readers what challenges they might be taken part in this month. One person responded with PiBoIdMo. I had no idea what it was. I could figure out PiBo...picture books...and thought it might be something of interest. So I googled it and WHAM! Right away I decided to do this at the same time as the PAD challenge. PiBoIdMo stands for Picture Book Idea Month. I am so excited. By the end of this month I will have 30 good ideas worked out and ready to start writing. Woohoo! AND after completing the challenge I will be eligible to win some really cool prizes.

And look! I've even got the cool badge to prove it.

Now matter what writing challenges you are taking part in this month (and even if you aren't doing any at all) I wish you fun and success in November.

Hi everyone.

To hear about my Sunday, join me at my other blog, Linda's Life on the Other Side. To do so, PRESS HERE.

For all my friends doing writing challenges, happy writing. I am doing Robert Lee Brewer's November chapbook challenge over at Poetic Asides and instead of participating in NaNoWriMo, which would be too much with my schedule, I have created my own writing challenge. It is the NaChiWriMo challenge. There are a few children's literature projects (certain submission and story ideas I have) that I will be working on this month.

Care to share what you are doing thsi month?
