10/12 Challenge of 2018

Every year, I set a certain number of “challenges,” or projects to accomplish. As the year goes on, I update how I’m going on the challenges, and write about a couple of them. I would love for you to join me! I could only come up with 10 for this year, though I might add some as the year progresses.

This color means it’s done.

This color means I’m working on it.

  1. Write two articles a month – maybe 4, so one a week.
  2. Read two books a month. (That doesn’t seem like much, but sometimes it feels like a lot.)
  3. Get pregnant. This is the, I think, third year this goal has been on the list, sadly. Turns out this actually has a name: Secondary Infertility. I obviously don’t write about the trying part, but we’re talking to a fertility specialist and I might write more about that.
  4. Take a vacation. And not to St. Louis.
  5. Send at least two stories to publication/contest.
  6. Do something awesome for my 40th birthday.
  7. Buy a new (to me) car.
  8. Finish my big story. (From my Bucket List Bounty)
  9. See five movies in a theater. (I don’t go to the movies often, but I like it when I’m there.)
  10. Take a weekend trip with family, Cohiba and Wee One. – We took a couple of day trips, and I think that counts.
