For those of you who don’t know, 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. I am trying to at least write two picture books over the year and last month I set my goal for this month at writing 5 pages about my story idea of a boy named Louie who lives in a magical bookstore. Here’s how I did….
With everything I had going on in March (school projects, Tae-Kwon Do, PSSAs, Reading Olympics, blog, etc…) , I didn’t have time to work on the book. 😦
BUT my Mom pointed out that one of my school projects was to write a picture book. We had to write a non-fiction ABC book about a topic we choose. I chose my topic about Abraham Lincoln. So, I actually wrote a 27-page picture book (26 letters, one cover page) in March! Here are two pages from my book (‘X’ and ‘W’) –
I hope this counts….what do you think?
How are you doing in 12×12?
Note – Thank you Lynn Davidson for pointing out a typo on my ‘W’ page! **blushing**
