Picture Book Idea Month (PiBoIdMo) is almost over. Coordinated by Tara Lazar, this annual event asks writers to set a goal of coming up with 30 picture book ideas during the 30 days of November. I’m behind because of the holiday and our church’s annual Christmas bazaar and tag sale. Everything went well, but I was tied up with preparations most of the week. Here are my latest ideas for PiBoIdMo:
PICTURE BOOK IDEA #22: The World’s Craziest Hockey Mom is about a boy who thinks his mother is the craziest hockey mom ever. I’m very competitive and I love hockey. I’m sure there are days my son wished I had stayed home instead of attending his games.
PICTURE BOOK IDEA #23: What if a garden gnome decides he’s tired of being a garden gnome one day and wants to try to be something else: a carpenter, a car mechanic, a ballerina? Not sure how I would develop this idea, but it sounds funny.
PICTURE BOOK IDEA #24: I also thought a book about a girl who is transported back to when Washington crossed the Delaware might be a neat idea. Not sure if it’s good for a picture book, but it might work.
PICTURE BOOK IDEA #25: What if one of Cinderella’s evil step-sisters got a chance to tell her side of the story?
