Storystorm, formally know as PiBoIdMo, or Picture Book Idea Month, has come to a close. I am proud to say that I completed the challenge on time this year! Storystorm is an annual on-line event run by author Tara Lazar. She has written some awesome picture books, such as The Monstore, Little Red Gliding Hood and Normal Norman. Storystorm runs during the month of January on Tara’s blog: “Writing for Kids While Raising Them” with daily posts by guest authors and illustrators full of inspiration. Over the month of January, our job is to try to come up with at least 30 new picture book ideas. Storystorm sparked 35 new picture book ideas for me this year! I certainly wouldn’t say they are 35 good ideas, but I’m pretty excited about a handful of them. Time to flesh out those ideas and get writing. Thank you Tara and all the Storystorm contributors!
