KRISTI VALIANT: Start an ongoing list of things you adore or loathe or laughed out loud at or evoked some kind of emotion that stuck with you.

My take away from PiBoldMo Day blog post #1:

“Don’t be afraid to change the way something happened. Writing fiction is lying in a good way. Sometimes we get so stuck on basing our manuscript on a real-life experience or a sweet person or animal we love, that we’re preventing our manuscript from becoming a fully realized, great book.” Kristi Valiant
