Hi there. I'm still here. I've been editing my novel like crazy, done a paper edit and I'm just typing in the changes and adding yet more. Up to 69k words now - quite respectable. So the autumn bucket list is to finish the novel and get it out to beta readers before the next NaNoWriMo begins in November.

Think not. Do.

If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got.

Took my friends to see a stately home nearby when they came to stay, so that's one off the list.

Thanks to a brainstorming session with my daughter I have the outline for my NaNoWriMo novel all planned out, and it should be meaty enough to do the 50k words. With the one I'm working on at the moment, it just keeps growing. I'd always worried I'd end up with 40k and have to pad it out, but it doesn't seem to work like that now I'm actually doing it.

Think not. Do.

OMG NaNoWriMo! I always want to try it because I know I can write a ton but I just never have the actual TIME to get in the words! One day I'm going to do it, I swear.

Good luck on your list! And congrats to you and the family on the new grandson!

That's a great idea! I really want to finish the novel I'm working on now, and I've joined the National Trust but haven't been to any stately homes yet. So:

Finish novel
Visit at least one National Trust property
Sign up for courses - luckily the first one isn't till after the New Year
Write the 50k words and get a NaNoWriMo badge

There's probably more, but that will do for now.

Think not. Do.

So Yami came up with this brilliant idea before Summer rolled around and I figure why not bring it to the Spark Team? Basically for the Summer we made bucket lists of things we wanted to do/accomplish during the Summer. Now that Summer is pretty much over, I've started making an Autumn Bucket List. Once I have it complete I'm tossing it up on this thread. Do you guys have seasonal bucket lists? If you do, what are some things on the list that you're willing to share with us? Who knows, maybe we can motivate each other to do more during the seasons and have fun with our seasonal goals!
