"I have an idea!"

I just counted my PiBoIdMo ideas. I thought I had about 35 ideas. I don't normally pay much attention to numbers or math unless I have to or unless I need to calculate something out of the ordinary like parsecs or parallax...but that's another story, I digress. My idea count now stands at 76.
Wow, I've surprised myself.

More PiBoIdMo

While the writers were busy trying to write a bazillion words in the month of November National Novel Writing Month aka NaNoWriMoauthor/illustrators of picture books were trying to come up with 30 + ideas for PiBoIdMo: Picture Book Idea Month.

I did it. I already had a substantial list of ideas (always do) but added to my list...substantially. So I signed a pledge to 'parlay' one or some of them into books...which I have found is the hardest part of an idea...making it real. 
I do solemnly swear 
that I have faithfully executed
the PiBoIdMo challenge, 

and will to the best of my ability,
parlay my ideas into picture books 

from the list of 30 I have created.

Get on my mark, get set....go for it!
