Bucket List

I am starting a new fiction writing project. One of the characters in my book has a sort of bucket list of things he/she wants to accomplish in their life. I am curious what are some of your favorite items on your bucket list???


  1. Hmmm... I have always been intrigued by bucket list ideas and how my answers change with time. At this moment I have a few that speak to me and some that I still hold dear and yet are not 'the focus of my energy' so to speak.

    - Speak before a live audience of 100,000 people as the main event
    - Author 30+ books
    - Own a cabin in the mountains that I built with my own hands (my secluded writers escape)
    - Personally affect and change the lives of 1,000,000 people

    Those are the ones that come to mind as I write and though I see they all go together I don't see all the steps between now and then, or even one or the other in many ways... and yet I see a thread through them all. All I can do is step forward and take the steps I see now that move me towards the future I envision...

  2. I am tied to my house in many ways, mostly by raising my daughter with disabilities. My bucket list reflects my desire to see the world because it has a lot of traveling in it. New York and Ireland, Europe, etc.

    I would so love to be published, but have always seen it as a 'later in life' thing. But then I have days that it consumes me and I want it SO bad that it can't come soon enough! :D

    My favorite person in my daughter's life is called her Intervener, which is a one on one aid specially trained in combined vision and hearing loss... I want to be that for someone else someday. I think I'd have a lot to offer another child and family.

    I also want to live on a farm with chickens and a beautiful, fun, loving dog and old out buildings and all kinds of SPACE! And an awesome old truck.
