I have been reading some amazing blogs lately and they have got me thinking. I read about people finishing novels, conquering fears, cooking excellent, unique meals, running 5k and getting further than they had ever dreamed possible and looking to take part in an adventure, be it climbing Kilimanjaro or taking a road trip across the US.
They all utterly fascinate me. People achieving dreams and goals. This is where it got me to thinking about mine. I have them in my head, but not down on paper, like you’re supposed to do (if you’re goal setting) so I thought I would share my list of goals and dreams with you, as this is after all supposed to be a journal!
Finish my novel. (It was supposed to be finished a little while ago at 350 pages, but it took a life of it’s own and became a lot more! Next week some of that is going to cut down while I edit, re-edit and edit again)
Send it to the editor for composition editing (more of it on the ‘cutting room floor’)
Once the first professional editing is done then it needs to grammatically edited.
Choose a final design for the cover.
Ask for reviews to be placed onto the cover.
Keep up with my Facebook, blog and Twitter.
Do a blog tour
Hopefully do a tour of the UK with it, (I was asked if I’d like to do one with a large organization over there)
Have it translated into Spanish.
Spend time with my kids before Christmas and hopefully at Christmas. (That’s my big one )
Go to the Full Moon Party in Thailand.
Road trip around the US, several places need a stop off, Portland, Oregon (Don’t why but it’s calling me for some reason!) California, Sedona, Arizona, New Orleans, Kentucky, Alabama, Key West, Georgia and the Carolina’s, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont…these places ‘tweak me’ and I need to go!
Go ski-ing in the Alps next winter, been too long since I was last there.
Have a wedding blessing with friends and family.
Travel around the world like the movie “Last stop for Paul”
So there’s this years “Bucket List” of goals and dreams!
Did I miss anything out? Don’t know, let me know if I should add anything to the list that I might have forgotten … maybe learn scuba diving finally with my husband… that would be good for a panic attack at least! Lol Please leave a comment and let me know what you think…
