I've started the year continuing the journey and jumping into to new opportunities with writing picture books. I joined the 12 x 12 challenge, which is essentially is a challenge to write 12 books in 12 months, with a built in community, resources, and various opportunities for feedback. I've been waiting to join since last March when I found out about it (registration closed in February). January is also Storystorm - which is a self-motivated and regulated challenge to come up with 30 picture book ideas in 30 days. Both of these endeavors are intimidating, exciting, and challenging, and I couldn't think of another way to start the year on this journey.
Here's to a fabulous year ahead!
