I’m guest blogging on Julie Hedlund’s blog today. Julie is amazingly talented and one of my first writing friends. If you get a chance, come on over and say hello.
One of Julie’s many projects is leading a group called 12×12 (over 400 writers and illustrators participate). The challenge is to write twelve picture book manuscripts in one year. No previous experience required!
If you missed signing up for 2012, be sure to sign up on her email form for next year. I highly recommend it.
What has 12×12 done for me?
Well, I’ve written six picture book manuscripts this year. That’s six more than last year. None of them are submission worthy, but two have me jumping out of my seat with excitement.
My favorite part of 12×12 is the wonderful network of friends. I’ve connected with so many talented writers from around the world. It may be a bunny eat bunny world in children’s publishing, but you’ll never meet a nicer group of people than the 12x12ers.

Happy writing and have a great week!
