On A Roll...or, Driving Myself Crazy?

As I told a fellow 12x12 in 2012 challenge member, I must be crazy for adding another thing to my proverbial plate.  In November, it was PiBoIdMo, which encouraged me to write down a picture book idea every day for 30 days...I did it!

This year, I've joined the 12x12 in 2012, which is quite a step up from the November challenge.  This contest of sorts, gives you the motivation to complete 12 picture book manuscripts in a year, using the 30 PB ideas from the PiBoIdMo contest.  I've finished my January ms...11 more to go!

Building my Writer's platform, (to ready me in the event that my picture book is published, and allowing me to promote my book to the world), has been in the forefront of my mind for at least 9 months.  So, I discovered the Writers Platform Building Campaign, which promises to help me in my quest.  This involves short spurts of energy and time on my part, during the next few weeks.  The signup ends this Wednesday, February 14th.

And last, but certainly not least, which will help me with all of the above, is the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, held during the Month of April.  Thirty days of blogging, each day, the theme of my post is to begin with a letter of the alphabet.  On the first day, the post theme or title will begin with 'A', the second day, 'B', and so on.  Wow...that will get me going!

Does anyone want to go with me?  Crazy, I mean?


  1. I'm only doing 12 x 12 and I'm already crazy. So I'll leave the rest of it to you. :-)

    Good luck!

  2. I'm sure you have enough on your plate, Julie. I am grateful for the time you are putting into 12x12. Good to hear from you...and thanks for commenting!

  3. Sounds like you'll be staying busy! Go for it!


  4. Thanks for your encouragement, Debbie!

  5. I'm stopping by from the Campaign, we're in the same PB group. I'm also doing the A-Z.

    Wow 12 X 12 sounds great, I'll have to check it out!

    Looking forward to getting to know you.

  6. Thanks for checking out my website...yes, 12x12 is a perfect boost for Writers! See you around...

  7. Thanks Traci...I'm finding it quite a challenge right now. Too much going on...but, I trust that it will even out soon!


I would love to have you comment...thanks!
