PiBoIdMo, NaNoWriMo, and WNFIN

Can I just tell you that I nearly drowned in all the acronyms I discovered, and I’m pretty sure there are more out there for this month. Here’s my first question: Why is everything in the same friggin month? Foolishly, I almost let all of this overwhelm me; I remember the most important idea: Just keep writing.

You all know that I’m trying to craft a breakout picture book. I’ve also started a memoir. It’s also the week that I”m supposed to be doing like 25 performance evaluations for my job.

So…how much do you think that I’m actually getting done? PiBoIdMo is going pretty well. I have plenty of opportunities to crank out at least one picture book idea a day. That’s as easy as taking a shower or fighting to get one of the kids to take a nap. ‘m going to have to play catch up the second these evaluations are over, but that’s something I’d already expected. No biggie. I’ve come up with 17 ideas so far. I honestly can’t wait to start on them, but I’m pacing myself.

The memoir, on the other hand, is a different story. There hasn’t been a great deal of actual writing going on.  I promised myself that come hell or high water, I’d have a book by December. I’m not backing down from that. Wish me luck!

What about you? Are you doing one of the challenges? How is your writing coming along?
