Is it crazy? Uh-huh. Is it fun? Dang right it is. And I've come up with some really good picture books too. Funny stories. Boy picture books. Because they need books. The first one I wrote, was a laugh so hard milk squirts out of your nose type book. This encouraged me so I wrote again the next day. And the next.
I'm going to be talking about the highs and lows of this marathon as I go. (There are sure to be days when I struggle to get a draft completed.)
What do I expect to gain from doing this? I know not all the drafts will be great. I might stick some in a folder and decide later what to do with them. But so far? Some really great ideas. Sparks of beautiful stories. Gems if you will.
And I expect to have some wonderful story starters. First drafts. Rough. Uncut. But. I'll. Have. Them. And I will make them sparkle and shiny. I can't wait to see what happens. The characters I've met are wonderful and funny. I love funny. I love wonderful too.
Think I can win this thing? Oh, and I need a cheering section. You in? :)
