2011 PICTURE BOOK MARATHON

31 Jan

Logo by Nathan Hale

The time has arrived for this year’s Picture Book Marathon. Special thanks to Jean Reagan and Lora Koehler for running this spectacular event. Similar to November’s Novel Writing Month, the Picture Book Marathon is centered around child-friendly 32/40 page texts. The goal is to pen 26 complete manuscripts in the month of February, leaving 2 days for rest, relaxation and sanity. Having successfully crossed the finish line along with 20+ other writers, I can’t wait to lace up the writing sneakers again this year. To sign-up simply pay a visit to http://www.picturebookmarathon.org but do so no later than January 30th! If you miss the deadline, there’s nothing stopping you from unofficially writing.

To help keep track of your complete manuscripts, please download my PBMarathonChecklist Click to view/print and right click to save the PDF.

During the marathon I encourage you to stop back here for the INSPIRATHON, a month long parade of motivational posts filled with Imagicise writing prompts, links, photos, Starting Line / Finish Line story starters/enders, quotes and music.

In addition be sure to blast off to Nathan Hale’s Space Station Nathan for his daily marathon posts including the cover and description of each manuscript.

For further motivation, I highly recommend Katie Davis’s Brain Burps About Books podcast.

Happy writing imaginators!
