Sometimes I think our dog barks just for the joy of it.

What is PiBoIdMo? Here's Tara Lazar's description from her blog:
The concept is to create 30 picture book ideas in 30 days. You don’t have to write a manuscript (but you can if the mood strikes). You don’t need potential best-seller ideas.
You might think of a clever title. Or a name for a character. Or just a silly thing like “purple polka-dot pony.” The object is to heighten your picture-book-idea-generating senses. Ideas may build upon other ideas and your list of potential stories will grow stronger as the days pass.
Daily blog posts by picture book authors, illustrators, editors and other kidlit professionals will help inspire you. By the end of the month, you’ll have a fat file of ideas to spark new stories.
I did this last year and an entire month of coming up with picture book ideas was a really great way to spark creativity.
So, click on the link and join me in a month of picture books.
