Do you NaPiBoWriWee?

     I was recently introduced to NaPiBoWriWee.
     No, it's not a horrible disease. It may take you over for a week like a contagious plague. But, then it's done.

     Full-time book author and TV writer/producer Paula Yoo is challenging writers to write seven picture books in seven days from May 1-7. This is the fifth year for the event.

     Honestly, I don't know if I will "join" or not. I like to work on a manuscript I feel passionate about, while I'm feeling the passion. If I'm wrapped up in the head of one magnificent character, I don't think I can pull myself away like Cinderella at the ball just because the hand on the clock clicks past midnight. But, I'll bet there will be great posts to read, inspiration that may come in handy later on.
     I read that there will be guest author blogs with Erin Eitter Kono, Varsha Bajaj, Katie Davis, Martha Brockenbrough . . ..
     A writer can never have too much inspiration .

     So, maybe I'll see you there?


  1. Maybe you will.... thanks for the heads up Wendy.

  2. I just heard about this too! I'm up for the challenge! We'll see how we all do. :)

  3. It's been a couple of years since I last did this, but I just won't have time this year. Maybe next year... I'm a fan of Paula's though!

  4. Decided I'm crazy enough to give it a go. The key's in my hand tonight. We'll see how I feel in seven days...

    1. You simply MUST do it! At least for a few days until there's no milk left in the fridge and your hair is falling out... You will end up with at least one good draft!
