12x12 in 2012


Last January I joined author Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 in 2012 challenge. The goal is to write a completed picturebook manuscript each month.  In January I wrote a sentimental story starring our pet rat, Penny. In February I wrote a tale about a child who daydreams. March gave me the idea for a kids book about Archaeology. And this month I have thought of the story of Lillith who is a busy mom who can’t cook. It’s a humorous tale full of mishaps. It takes an observant Aunt to help Lillith find her inner chef.


Congrats to all of my friends who have also completed this month’s challenge. On to May! 😀

  5. Great job Loni. I can relate to Lillith’s story. Well, I’ve been trying to cook more recently. Good luck with your May manuscript.
