Ten in '10

Okay, so Sudipta got me inspired. I am going to write ten picture books in 2010!

Anyone else in?

Oooh...let me think about it. I'm working on a MG novel also, but PBs are my first love. But 10? That's a tall order.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Ten! You go, Corey! Me? Well, maybe I can finally finish my one picture book and one of my YAs. That would make me happy.

Kristin said...

Corey, I'm too chicken to put my goal "out there", but I did email myself a specific number to refer to come December.

Thanks for the prod.

You go girl! I'm thinking of attempting 10 pages in 2010. No, I'm only kidding, but I do think I'll aim a little lower.

Rebecca said...

Ten. Hmm. That would mean one for each remaining month of 2010. I think I could pull that off if I weren't trying to also finish a novel. Maybe I'll say 5 instead. But who knows what could happen!

Rena said...

Sounds like fun. I've written one so far, plus a MG. Good luck!

I'm not a PB writer, but I'm behind you all the way!! :)

storyqueen said...

I am in! (Already have two done....hehehe....)

And your stats are about right....I've written close to 40, sold 9.

in!

do current WIPs count towards the final 10?

Melissa said...

AWESOME! You can do it!

Corey Schwartz said...

Current WIPs? Hmm... did you start them or write the bulk of then since Jan 1st? I am counting two so far- Goldi and Ninja sequel.

I want to say I'm in, but then I want to say I'm crazy, but then I want to say I'm in again...so let's count me in. For today. Ask me again tomorrow. :)

MG Higgins said...

Cool! Go for it! If I were writing PB's I'm sure I'd be joining you.

Elana Johnson said...

Woot! You go, girl! I don't write PB's, but I'm going to write a new novel. Does that count?

Rachel Writes 4 Kids said...

I'll join you, sounds like a good goal. I have 1 that I'm working on now. I need to have a brainsorming session. :)

Kim said...

WHOAH! I think I'd have a heart attack if I tried to attempt that!

I'm excited for you, though. Can I be your cheerleader instead?

Kelly H-Y said...

I'll certainly try!

Lori Degman said...

Thanks for the challenge Corey! I joined the Picture Book Marathon - one first draft (beginning, middle & end) every day for the month of February and I managed one complete first draft :-( Life kept getting in the way. But, one a month sounds doable - and I can do extra writing in the summer when I'm not working.

So, count me in!!!

Corey Schwartz said...

OMG, Lori, that is crazy!!! Yes, one a month sounds very reasonable after hearing that!

Tricia Fressola Idrobo said...

I think it's a good goal. Once you get your ten stories you can begin the fun part--revision!

Megan Abrahams said...

I've given you a One Lovely Blog Award - today on my blog.

Jacqui said...

Ok. I will try.

I'll give it a go. I've got three that I've written since Jan. 1 plus two others from last year. This would keep me from resting on my laurels.
