12 x 12 blog party!

Picture book party time!
We’re half way through the year.
6 first draft picture books
and not one single tear.
It’s easy peasy
never cheesy
dream it up and write.
Never mind the editing,
save for another night.
Right now’s not the time to mosey
what this is all about?
Will it sell? Do very well?
Just get the darn thing out. ;)

Hoorah for Julie organising this wonderful venture. You can’t go wrong writing picture books because even the ones that don’t make it as pbs make great fodder for poetry collections ;) The 12×12 Facebook group is so fantastic and supportive. Thanks Julie!

    Congrats on the first half of this amazing challenge…and best of luck and happy writing for the second half! Just think how many possible picture books have been writen already. :) :)

  2. I heart this line: Never mind the editing,
    save for another night. Well, really I heart the whole thing. I’m late to the comment party. Congrats on your manuscripts. Cheers to the next six!
