I just signed up to participate in the 12 x 12 in 2012: Picture Book Writing Challenge at Julie Hedlund's blog, Write Up My Life.
This means I'm going to have to write one picture book per month for each of the twelve months of 2012 but it doesn't have to be a submission ready piece.
If you want to join in on the fun too, there is still time to sign up. The deadline is JANUARY 29, 2012. Just click this link here to get started: http://writeupmylife.com/2011/11/30/12-x-12-in-2012-picture-book-writing-challenge/
