31 days, 31 guest posts, 30 story ideas. And, of course, one wacky and wonderful hostess with the mostest, Tara Lazar! Tara is an author and the creator of Storystorm (formerly known as PiBoIdMo – Picture Book Idea Month). She has been running this gig since 2009 and always makes it worthwhile. This is my 9th year participating and I walk away from every challenge with a renewed excitement about my writing and often with way more than 30 ideas.
