Last year I wrote THIRTY children’s stories in the month of November.
I was inspired by some friends that were doing #NaNoWriMo and writing an entire novel in one month. Based on a children’s book word count of 500-1k words, I figured I could handle writing a book a day for the month, and thus Children’s Book Writing Month (#ChiBoWriMo) was born .
I was able to use the stories I wrote last November to publish three books this year (Check out the Smart Girl Fairy Tale Series), and I hope to do it again.
Want to join me? I made it easy. Just download this list of writing prompts here.
Hang it somewhere special and plan at least thirty quiet minutes a day to sit, think, and write.
Trust me, I know a prompt may seem odd when you first read it, but give it five minutes and see where your mind begins to go. Before you know it, you’ll have a rough draft before you.
And a rough draft is all we are going for here. At the end of the month you can read your stories over and pick a handful that deserve a second draft.
Use #ChiBoWriMo on your social posts so we can cheer each other on.
Once you finish the challenge, you can always do another round with these additional prompts.
And don’t forget, this is supposed to be FUN! Let your silly side out.
