PiBoIdMo is now Storystorm

Followers of this blog will have noticed the absence of Picture Book Idea Month back in November. Founder Tara Lazar announced big changes, and those changes are here.

Storystorm is the new incarnation of PiBoIdMo. Instead of focusing on picture book ideas, Storystorm aims to inspire writers of all genres. Daily posts and oodles of prizes are the motivators for aspiring and published writers to spend the next thirty days brainstorming story ideas.

There's still time to chase the idea storm.
  • Grab a notebook.
  • Register on Tara's blog before January 7.
  • Read this month's posts from Deb Lund and Tara herself.
  • Comment on each post to be entered in the drawings.

That's it! Remember to register and comment JUST ONCE per day to be eligible for the prizes. Honestly, I can't remember ever winning anything, but as a participant since 2012, I've collected hundreds of ideas and now I don't need a challenge to generate ideas. My brain is constantly on the lookout for story tidbits and I habitually fill my notebooks with story seeds.

Now I just need February to be Writingstorm so I can turn each of these shiny ideas into a manuscript.

Are you participating? Which challenges are you using to move your writing forward?
