I wrote a 30 Things Before 30 Bucket List and today I turn 30 – time to see how I did!
I wrote a 30 Things Before 30 Bucket List, now I have a little over a year to complete it.
The countdown is on!!
So, I completed NaNoWriMo 2012. I have a funky badge to prove it – look: I also have a Scrivener project that is 54,127 words long and impossible to summarise. I am using the excuse that the novel isn’t actually finished as my reason my I am unable to describe what it is about without…… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2012 and The December 750 Words Challenge
Having just looked up that we are in week 44 of this year and that I have only read 40 books since January 1st, I am starting to fear that I will fail at my target to read 52 books in the 52 weeks of 2012. I need to get a wriggle on! With that…… Continue reading November Reading

I have no staying power at all, I start out with the best of intentions and usually fail by the end of the first day (or second if I’m lucky) – a bit like New Years Resolutions. With that in mind I’ve decided to approach Lent a…… Continue reading My Personal Lent Project 2012
