Am I nuts?

Joining a marathon?

On Facebook, a friend told me about a Picture Book Marathon that is happening during February. The idea is to write 26 picture book drafts during February…

I’m wondering if I should sign up for this or not. I know that so far for 12×12 in 12 I have finished one draft and have another 3 on the go already! The ideas are coming thick and fast…

But, could I do 26 complete first drafts in one month? The kids will be back in school, but it means I’ll be back at work too…

Then again, this could be the push I need to get those pesky ideas out of my head an onto the page.

Can I do this, or am I nuts even considering joining this marathon? Over to you, what do you think?

  1. If you have the ideas coming, then why not try?! The worst that can happen is you realise it’s too much and hopefully end up with a few pbs out of it. Whatever you choose to do, I wish you the best of luck!

  3. Thanks Jennifer. It’s OK, I’m in Australia & spell realise with an s 🙂

  4. You should definitely go for it Melissa! It’s a brilliant idea, especially having heard your enthusiasm for fiction writing on the phone recently!
    Shoot for the stars!
