As much fun as one might think it might be to blog with oneself, well, I'm here to say that it really isn't.

So I need to advertise the blog to get people to visit with me? Hmmm...what a concept.

I bit the bullet and posted it on facebook that I write, that I'd written a book and that I have a blog! Nothing like laying all my vulnerability out naked on the table for all to see! Eek!

But it is a necessary step, and frankly, isn't the scariest thing in the world. Submitting your work to a critique group, now THAT is scary!

I also mentioned in my post my bucket list. Ah, yes, we all know the movie that term was coined from. And we all have a bucket list. Those things we all want to do before we die. So, I believe first hand, that saying of write your goals down and you will achieve them. That is what my bucket list is. My goals and dreams. And listed below is my bucket list. What's yours? Give my your top ten items that would be on your bucket list. Heck, it could be twice that or half that. What do you want to do before you die?

1. Write and publish a novel
2. Run a 5K
3. Raise my daughters to be strong women
4. Visit Austrailia
5. Take a cruise
6. Learn sign language
7. Own land where my man and kids can play
8. Watch my daughters get married and start their own families
9. Be debt free
10. Travel to all 50 states

Celebration Time!

Well, I'd set a goal to finish writing my first novel by December 31. And I did it! But does that mean its now done? Oh, no. Definately not. But I hit the first goal to finish writing it, and now starts the endless task of editing, revising, polishing and editing again. But needless to say, I took a moment to celebrate for hitting a goal I'd set for myself. And now the party is over and I'm back to writing. Happy Wednesday!
