Find A Buddy

When you're running a marathon it helps to have people there to cheer you on, and it's no different if you're writing (or illustrating) a marathon. Let your friends and family know about your plans for the marathon. Find at least one buddy to help you through, whether that's a quick phone call to see how your picture book went that day, a pot of soup simmering on the stove when you get home from work, or someone who will take your dog out for a walk while you write. 

Some feel that only someone who's participating can really understand; if that's you, consider recruiting another writer or illustrator to do the marathon with you, or connect with others who have already committed to the marathon on the PBM facebook page.
