Picture Book Month and PiBoIdMo 2012

Today's the day!  Not only is November designated as Picture Book Month, but November 1st is also the first day of Picture Book Idea Month aka PiBoIdMo.  
I'm so excited to start November!  I've made a decision to get some serious writing done, as well as lots of ideas written down for the future. My goals for the month:
  • Start and complete PiBoIdMo 2012 (My ideas will be going into my brand new journal that I received for completing Susanna Leonard Hill's Summer Short & Sweet writing challenge.)
  • Finish the novel writing class I'm taking with the Institute for Children's Literature by completing revisions of my middle grade novel in preparation to begin the querying process.
  • Complete a rough draft for November for the 12x12 in 2012 challenge. (I haven't completed a draft for the last few months and need to get back in gear.)
Sounds like a lot, I know, but I figure since I'm putting this out there, I'm accountable to all of you to complete my goals.

With that said, I may not be posting as much this month for Marvelous Middle Grade Monday or Perfect Picture Book Friday or making the rounds to comment on other blogs. I do have a couple giveaways in the works, though, so make sure to stop by occasionally.

For those of you participating in PiBoIdMo, I'm sure I will see you around Tara's blog and the Facebook page.  For those of you who haven't signed up, but want to, there's still time. 

Best of luck for everyone's writing goals for November. I will post back to let you know how my goals are going and if I completed all three.
