ReviMo 2016

 
3rd Annual ReviMo - Revise More Picture Books Challenge
January 10th-16th, 2016

Got picture book drafts piled up collecting dust? Have critiques for your story, but haven't done a SINGLE thing to improve it?  Need a jumpstart to revise? ReviMo is for you!

Each ReviMo, you will be encouraged to REVISE those picture book manuscripts. There will be blogs, graphics (and perhaps vlogs) encouraging you to take out that poopy first (second, third, fifteenth) draft and breathe new life into it. I hope you will join us!

How do you ReviMo, you ask? 

Register for ReviMo:
You must (to be eligible for prizes):
1. Register by commenting (once only please!) below with your name. Registration closes 10 pm CST 1/11/16.
2. Keep track of how many days you REVISE a picture book manuscript (you are on the honor system) January 10-16th. Those of you who revise 4+ days will be eligible to win fabulous prizes!! There will be a blog post with Rafflecopters on the 17th, where you can enter to win. There will be daily posts to motivate and inspire you, you can subscribe to my blog to receive the posts by email!
3. Comment on the daily posts, thank our guests and let us know how your revisions are going!

What counts as REVISING? Making significant and thoughtful changes to a Picture Book Manuscript. If you go through and change a few words that doesn't count! I want you to stand your manuscripts on their heads, twirl it around and get that outstanding story out! (check out Laura Ruby's post for more thoughts on what revision is and isn't!)
