I love the idea Jamie came up with for her blogfest! Cause everyone likes goals, right? Everyone loves a bucket list!! I haven't looked at my list in a couple years and it really hit home how much more I have to accomplish and that I better stop being cowardly and get my ass in gear with the querying. So, thank you, Jamie. If you guys haven't signed up yet, you have till the end of January, and Jamie is giving away some awesome prizes. Make sure to go check out her SITE.
Here is my 18 things...
Get published Technically, I already accomplished this one, so it should really read publish an actual book.
Go to a writer’s conference Funny that I will never have the money to do this unless I make it writing, at which point maybe it won't seem as important anymore? But I still think it would be fun to meet a ton of people who are passionate about writing!
Swim with dolpins. Cause who doesn't want to swim with dolphins?
Be an extra in a movie My son was in a Nickelodeon commercial when he was three. I can't have him being the only famous person in the family--it's just not right for him to one-up me like that.
|One of my most popular faces|
Get a canvas I made hung in an art gallery. It would probably help this goal immensely to actually make said canvas.
Volunteer face-paint at a children’s hospital I've volunteered for a million other things with my face-painting skills, but never in a hospital. One of these days...
Go snorkeling in Key West I only live eight hours from here. A hop, skip and jump.
Work at a monkey rescue for a weekend.. Again, who wouldn't want to take care of orphaned primates???
Speak on some sort of panel about writing Unlike most people, I like speaking in public. I generally just like running my mouth. Having a room-full of people who have to listen to me would be awesome.
Start business making/selling handcrafted mirrors and stuff This is one that requires my husband's help. He seems to need a swift kick in the ass for motivation.
Write/publish a book with my son Enough said.
|I need to see the person who can do this|
and not snap their body in half like a
See Cirque Du Soleil I've always been fascinated with this, but the tickets are horrendously expensive. I might just settle for watching the movie when it comes out. Does that count?
Go to California The geography fascinates me. CA has everything, if you're willing to drive around the state to find it. Mountains, deserts, oceans, snow, beautiful weather. Literally any landscape you could want.
Visit somewhere outside the U.S. Preferrably Venice or Prague. Between Cassie Clare and Laini Taylor, I'm dying to see both these places.
Take my family on a Disney Cruise There is nothing Disney that I don't like. Except their prices, of course.
Buy at least one of the beautiful Disney paintings they sell in the awesome gallery in Downtown Disney Again, pricey, but sooooo pretty. I love the oil paintings the most.
Take my husband to a UFC fight! He's a huge UFC fan and I'd love to do this for him.
This one kind of goes with the first but, since it’s my biggest dream by far; I get to say it twice. Walk into a bookstore and see my book on the shelf. Everyone reading understands this one completely...
In order to participate in this blogfest, I decided to forego my normal Teaser Tuesday post this week--but I'll be back next week!
