Last Post of the Year

Filed under: Uncategorized — coffeegirl88 @ 11:49 am

Yeah, that title would probably be more dramatic if today weren’t the last day of the year.  Oh well.

So, I felt the need to blog even though I don’t have much to say.  It feels like I’ve been here a lot lately and actually I have, but I’ve been working on 2 posts that aren’t ready for public viewing.  Oh, nothing mysterious really, just 2 lists I haven’t completed. 

One of those lists is a 101 things in 1001 days challenge.  What is that?  I found it via Twitter a couple weeks ago and well, I really like the idea.  It’s all about making a list of things (101) that will help you improve your life, specific things.  It’s harder than I thought, well I could list each and every quilt I have started and that would probably take half the list (maybe I should do that).  Anyway, I’ll be powering through this list today and tomorrow because I start this challenge tomorrow morning.  I’m a real big fan of to-do-lists and well, this is a biggie.  I’m going to post it public as a way to keep myself honest and on task. 

I’ll also be starting WinoWriMo tomorrow morning as well.  Looking forward to working with the Wiffers on another challenge, I certainly did much better on NaNo with their help.  Thanks much guys!!  I learned too that I do better with a challenge when I have people cheering me on, which is why I’ve participated in my last Sweating with Sven challenge.  I’ve never done well and I realize that it’s because I’m working alone. 

I’m looking forward to getting back into “On the Way Down” as I haven’t even looked at it for the last 10 days or so.  I’ve also had a couple other ideas tumbling around at the back of my mind.  I’ll have to see which is talking the loudest and work up an outline for it so I’ll have something ready and waiting when I need to take a break.

Let’s see, what else?  I’m hoping 2009 is a better year and 2008, not that this has been a bad year, I would just like to continue on with the positive and build upon it.  So hope everyone has a good New Year’s Eve and an even better 2009!

 

p.s.  why is it that the speller checker on the blog always flags “blog” as a misspelling?

  1. I think it’s so exciting that you’re going to do the 101 things in 1001 days! I can’t wait to see your finished list and see what awesome things you’re going to be working on. Looking forward to the WinoWriMo challenge too. It’ll be good motivation for me to get back to work on the novel, which has pretty much just sat since November 30th.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  2. Thank you. I’m seriously looking forward to WinoWriMo, my manuscript has seen little of me since November. I started to read through it then, well, got distracted *oh shiny thing*

  3. Happy New Year! Good luck with WinoWriMo. I completely agree about the support thing. Go Wiffers!

    Looking forward to your lists!
