It is a 12×12 in ’12 blog party today! It is also the 12×12 halfway point! YAY!
I am trying to do Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 Challenge. It is a challenge to write 12 picture book drafts in 12 months in 2012. You can click on the 12×12 banner on the right side bar or the one above to learn more about it.
OK, OK, on to business – WE GET TO CELEBRATE!
Here goes -
At the beginning of 12×12, I thought I would only get 1 picture book manuscript done. Yes, that was my goal, one picture book manuscript. Well, not only did I already get TWO picture book manuscripts finished so far, the book I did for a school project (“Abraham Lincoln from A to Z”), was bound by my school! My school was nice and took all of the books we kids did to a local book-binding company and had them bound and they gave them to us. I know it isn’t like a real published book, but it still is cool to see a book I wrote in a hard cover and it made a lot of us kids even more interested in writing!
and a happy dance…
To all the 12×12′ers out there, CONGRATULATIONS on making it this far! :)
To celebrate I have made a little LEGO guy that is supposed to be me (as a LEGO guy) writing, with a lamp and a glass of water. Enjoy!
