Five Things to Accomplish Before I turn Fifty
Get a tattoo. Somewhere that can’t easily be seen, and something small. But for some reason I want to get a tattoo before I turn the big 5-0. Got an ankle bracelet tattoo!
Write the first draft of “Where is Taylor?” and a partial draft of the 2nd book in the series, title as yet undecided. Each book will be at least 63k, and I’ve begun work on WIT. Did not complete this, but I’m giving it a strike through anyway, because I wrote and submitted a short story which I’m very proud of to Glimmer Train Press and it hasn’t been rejected yet. I should hear back by September 25th if I won, or October 1st if I lost. Either way I’m proud of myself because it’s a good story, and I’ll continue to submit until I find a good home for it.
3. Get lean and mean. I would like to get down to my goal weight (somewhere between 150-160 for my height) before 50.
4. Exercise regularly. Walk Lucy 3-4 times a week at first working up to daily, four miles a day.
Fifty followers. I have 26 followers on my blog now. Somehow I will build my following to 50 by 50. (hey – over halfway there!) Last time I checked I have 58 new followers. And I had a grand birthday.
I turn 50 on September 5th of this year! Woot!
