PiBoIdMo sent my brain, sight, ears, tongue, touch, and of course my nose into a flurry of activity. Ideas popped up everywhere. Ideas from pictures, from fellow writers blog posts, from my kids, from my hubby, ideas from signs on the road, a sign in a yard, colors, textures, my horses and assorted farm buddies. Little pieces of paper in a basket. Little pieces of paper that will be become stories this coming year. I even have a couple non-fiction ideas. Now there were many more than fifty-five. But alas, these were not scribbled down fast enough and something took my mind off the thought and it vanished. *boohoo*
I have some exciting, fresh, promising, lovely, ideas that I plan on turning into exciting, fresh, promising, lovely picture books. How about you?
Did you see with all your senses in November? Did a certain food you tasted give you an idea? A smell? A picture? An unusual bug? Ideas are all around us. We as writers have to 'see' with our whole body, not just our eyes. Smell with our entire being, not just our noses. Btw, do you realize how crazy toes look? I was staring at my families toes and had a perfect idea for a funny picture book. It involves noses too. But it has a different take on the subject. I'm raring to go. As a matter of fact, now comes the organization. Which one do I tackle first?
So right now, I'm kicking back and resting. Then next week I start planning, structuring, seeing these books in my minds eye. I will scribble more notes about them. Hear the stories they want to give me. I have joined Julie Hedlund's 12 x 12 in 2012. Go here.
If you haven't heard about this Cow Poke, I invite you to mount your bronc and take this ride with me. (Cowboy talk. Another idea.) I've been walking around the house talking like this for a week. People around here are getting a little tired of it too. I say it's research family! Sheesh!
Let the stories begin!
I wrote a Picture Book few months, its just 556 words. I am sure your PB ideas will translate into great books.ReplyDelete
It's so fun to have shiny new ideas! Have a great weekend, Robyn!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you have a lot of ideas going on. I've never looked at toes that way.ReplyDelete
I just finished a family cookbook for my children for their Christmas presents! Can't talk about it on my blog because they lurk! But it is funny how the ideas come. Some in spurts and others like avalanches! I love when the avalanches stike, they take my breath away.ReplyDelete
You go girl! There is a small part of me that's envious of those of you who can write picture books. I am not one with that kind of talent. But ideas? They are everywhere. My problem is focusing on one long enough to turn it into a story before another idea sabotages me. :)ReplyDelete
Wow! congratulations on all of the ideas. May you turn many of them into delightful PBs!ReplyDelete
Holy Cow, Robyn! You've got your work cut out for you! Congratulations on coming up with so many ideas! WTG!ReplyDelete
Yes, let the stories begin! Glad it was productive for you, amigo! We love that. With your smarts and clever-ness, I am sure these ideas will take you a long way!ReplyDelete
Rest and relax my friend, you've earned it! Have a fabulous weekend!
How wonderful to come up with so many new ideas! Hope they develop into some wonderful books!ReplyDelete
I hope you're enjoying your rest my friend. You'll need it if you're going to bring those 55!! ideas to fruition.ReplyDelete
Yeah for all the ideas. I'm still sorting through mine. Lots of work to do after those initial nuggets hit the page.ReplyDelete
What a fun, fun post, Robyn. You're on a roll! I agree that toes are very funny and ugly and fugly and strange, and I bet you come up with a hilarious picture book with that idea. Noses, too. Especially hairy nostril noses! I'm not sayin' anything about them greenie thingies. Uck!ReplyDelete
My daughter told me I should do a blog post about mustaches, and I plan to one of these days. Okay, heading over to Julie's post now! Thanks!
55! Way to let the imagination roll. Can't wait to hear how take root and grow, grow, grow.ReplyDelete
Isn't it wonderful when we get ideas from the simplest, most mundane things? I've done my share of toe-gazing. :)ReplyDelete
Oh you are funny! Yee haa get those ideas crack-a-lacking :PReplyDelete
Can't wait to hear more about your toes book Robyn, I hope you're going to use your real toes in your future book tour ;)
Thought id pop on to say that i hope your Thanksgiving was a very good one. Richard from Amish StoriesReplyDelete

Glad you had such an explosion of ideas. What fun!ReplyDelete
You should take a rest. Writing PB is hard. I don't think I could do it.ReplyDelete
Congrats on all the ideas - glad you're doing 12X12 too :)ReplyDelete
