Whew! I finished the first day of National Picture Book Writing Week (NaPiBoWriWee). Draft one complete. I had anxiety about writer’s block when I started, but in the end I sat down (both my daughters were sleeping) and let the words flow onto the screen. This does not happen often, but I committed myself to just writing a ROUGH draft. That’s it. We’ll see if the rest of the week goes as smooth as yesterday. I do have a lot of goodies in my ‘brain-dumping-everything-goes’ notebook. But, it did take me a few starts before I found one I could work through to the end for day one. Let’s see how day two works out and I’ll report back tomorrow!
