It's not my favorite idea of them all, but the above image may be my favorite in my entire PiBoIdMo notebook. One thing I discovered this month was that when I couldn't come up with words, I drew instead and the words inevitably followed. Sometimes they took up entire pages and I started to wonder if I was writing a chapter book:
I have never participated in a creative event that required so much dedication and thought. It made my November completely fly by. Where did it go!? Hello... November?
I woke up each day to a new inspiring post on Tara Lazar's blog. It was everything I could do to not read them before bed, towards the end I cheated a little. :) Have you seen the motivational image that Tiffany Strelitz Haber posted on Day 28? I swear it's what kept me going. It would have been so easy to just say "Oh, I'll finish the last two ideas some other time." But guess what?
My last idea was written on a peaceful Friday evening with my furry friend, Timmy, close by. I filled the entire notebook to nearly overflowing...
...and that makes me a winner!
