National Picture Book Writing Week is almost here! We Pibo’s affectionately call it NaPiBoWriWee. Paula Yoo is posting an inspirational blog every day in April to get us geared up for May 1-7, when we’ll attempt to write seven picture books in seven days.

I’m extremely honored to be featured as a guest blogger on her site today. You can read it here where I discuss the role that NaPiBoWriWee 2009 played in my inspiration to write my award winning manuscript, Starry Kalahari.

For a quick giggle, take a look at the silly poem I wrote for Paula last year after I achieved my seven picture book goal at NaPiBoWriWee 2009, HEY, PAULA YOO.
