A partial bucket list

Since we’re been talking about bucket lists all week, I thought I should start writing down my own. Many of the things are inspired by the book A Writer’s Bucket List and most of the things on my list are more like “what I want to accomplish this year” kind of stuff than “things I want to do before I die” kind of stuff, but what the heck. A list is a list and I think it’s always healthy to have a list of small goals or plans for any time and any where.

This is just a partial list, okay? :)

The List
As of February 7, 2013 

  1. Write short stories (I’m aiming for 10 for 2013. Eep.)
  2. Write personal essays (I’m aiming for 20 for 2013. Haha.)
  3. Complete the 30-day creative writing challenge (Was supposed to start this last year. Tsk)
  4. Complete the 1-month Words.ph challenge (I made this up. I’m challenging myself to grab an assignment from my Words.ph account at least once a day for a month and I’ll see how much I earn. Hah.)
  5. Keep a freelance journal
  6. Write a book (be it a nonfiction, how-to or a novella, whatever, write something)
  7. Submit stories to magazines and journals
  8. Have a story published in a magazine
  9. Enter a writing contest
  10. Work for a start-up
  11. Work for a non-profit
  12. Pitch a guest post to a blogger way bigger than me
  13. Publish a guest post to a blog way bigger than me
  14. Read Elements of Style by Strunk & White (because I have never ever)
  15. Read 100 books every year
  16. Vamp up the Color It You blog and offer at least 5 blogger templates designed by me
  17. Complete the Insanity workout
  18. Exercise or do quick workouts every day after Insanity

THAT is not much of a list. I know, but it’s a start.

This list will be updated as I see fit. HAH.

What else do you think should be on my puny list? ;)

  1. I really look forward to #16. The idea behind Color It YOU is awesome and helpful.

    By the way, do you have a blog where you post your writing? I’d love to see a sample.

    I hope you get your list completed. :D
