Writer’s Bucket List

bucket list

 

Confession right up front: I’m totally stealing this idea. I follow a great writing blog by Ave Jae (you can find her list here) and I found it so inspiring, and a great way to keep an eye on the prize. It also made me think about what “the prize” really is. Mine will be different since I’m not focusing on traditional publishing. But it’s precisely because of this reason that I want to do this. I think it will help to focus me since I feel a little flounder-y at the moment. So, with a hint from Ava Jae, I’m starting with a few things that I’ve already accomplished (because really, what is better than crossing things off a list?). So here goes…

  1. Finish first draft of a full-length novel
  2. Finish initial edit of a novel
  3. Finish final edits of a novel
  4. Choose fantastic cover art
  5. Go to a writer’s convention
  6. Publish my first book!
  7. Hold a finished, published, perfect copy of my book in my hands
  8. Have a launch party
  9. Have a book signing
  10. Get a great review from a complete stranger
  11. Outline a whole trilogy
  12. Complete a trilogy
  13. Get a fan letter
  14. Be someone’s favourite author
  15. See fanfic based on my characters
  16. See a tattoo based on my books
  17. Have an agent seek me out

So there we have it! What’s on your list?
