I don't know exactly what the draw is. Maybe the runner in me likes the marathon idea. In this one you write a picture book a day for the month of February.

Obviously this one isn't coming up for awhile, but I know there are others out there. Things like creating a book concept or title each day for a month, writing x number of pages for a month, etc. Does anyone know of others?

For whatever reason, participating in something like this gives me an extra nudge to make time for writing even when it doesn't seem like it exists.

I hadn't heard of the PB challenge-1 a day!!!-that would be very exhausting, but a great exercise!

The only other writing monthly challenge I know of is the one for novels where they try to write one in a month with so many words-per-day goal. I can't remember which month they use.

Dear lord, that sounds exhausting. I'm happy if I write a new manuscript once a week, much less once a day! How in the world would a person find time to edit all of that? (Or at least do it well?) You would get a lot of work done though.

I read back in their blog a little bit though and it looks like they offer daily writing prompts, photos for inspiration, etc.

Okay, I admit that I'm intrigued. If I'm not busy in February, maybe I'll try it. Doubt I'll make the 26 picture book goal though. I'm sure I'd be sacrificing quality for quantity if I did.
