Joining the Unofficial Dummy Book Challenge

Look! It's official because I have a badge!  I have decided to join the 2013 Unofficial Picture Book Dummy Challenge which is hosted by Lisa Thompson. I have been keeping my eyes open for a good picture book writing challenge. For the past I-don't-know-how-many years, I have been wanting to start writing and illustrating my own books. I have written a few stories here and there and even done a couple dummy books. But nothing has ever gotten very far, and a dream is just a dream unless you do something about it.  It seems like my other illustrations jobs always get in the way of this thing that I really want to do. So this year I am doing something about it. A challenge will be really good for me because I can keep on track with the deadlines and be held accountable in front of other author/illustrators who are doing the same thing. I am announcing it here, and I will hold myself accountable for each step here on this blog. So here we go! This week the first step is to Pick a Project.
