Thirty Somethings

October 27, 2014

As an ‘older’ citizen in the kid-lit community, I have learned to enjoy rubbing elbows with, on average, a ‘younger’ crowd.

I have no idea what the ‘average’ age is for members in Julie Hedlund’s 12 x 12 Picture Book Challenge, or the mean age of those disciplined writing souls committed to Meg Miller’s on-going periodic ReviMo revision sessions.  I couldn’t begin to even guess at the median years represented by members in Kristen Fulton’s non-fiction-picturebook WOW group, subscribers to Sylvia Liu’s and Elaine Kiely Kearns’ KIDLIT411, or listeners tuned in to Katie Davis’ Brain Burps About Books.

But I do know, in Tara Lazar’s PiBoIdMo Challenge, we’re all thirty-something for a month!piboidmo2014officialparticipant

Thirty (plus) days of inspiring and informing posts on writing picture books for kids.

Thirty (plus) days of insights into the kid-lit world through comments from a sharing and dedicated community of writers.

Thirty (plus) ideas for when a spark for a story is ready to plug in.  That’s thirty “somethings” with the potential to shine in my writing future.

So with bright excitement I’m participating again in one of the best challenges for writers I’ve ever discovered, Tara Lazar’s 2014 Picture-Book-Idea-Month, all through the month of November.  (The pre-posts have already begun, so check them out to get your ideas glowing.)
