I have decided to add a resources type of page on the blog and thought that my writer’s bucket list would be a great place to start. Some of these items were on another list but I was motivated by an old article in Writer’s Digest. Inside of another article there was a Writer’s Bucket List and I wondered what I would include on mine.
They suggested some things that I just couldn’t put on my list; like reading Shakespeare which I already subjected myself to and have yet to recover. Their list also contained attending a writing conference; I have already done that so I put specific conferences/ festivals. I have completed a novella and I hope to finish a novel this year. I also hope to participate in National Novel Writing Month this November if I can get some friends to join me. My favorite number is twelve so I thought that would be a good number to begin with. I plan to expand this list as I get new ideas.
