Just Jot It January 5th – 2016 (My Bucket List)


For the 2016 prompt I’ve decided to take a page from Opinionated Man’s book and write my 2016 Bucket List. Here we go:

  1. Finish my novel and get it published. (I cringe to think how many times this has already drowned in my bucket.)
  2. Get paid for something I write. (It might even be my novel!)
  3. Have a weekend to myself. In my house. Alone.
  4. Teach the dog sign language as well as voice commands so Alex can communicate with him.
  5. A boy and his puppy

    A boy and his puppy

  6. Get my house spotlessly clean top to bottom. (Look for this one on the list every year for the next ten years … a girl can dream.)
  7. Do something with the pot hole that is my back yard. (Okay, it’s not that bad, but it’s not that great either.)
  8. Keep the weight off that I’ve already lost. (This is starting to sound like a list of resolutions. πŸ˜› )
  9. Finish writing the novel I said I was going to finish by Christmas. (My bad.)
  10. Get inspired some more!

What’s on your bucket list for this year?

  24. Quite impressive your bucket list and one that lasts ;-). Good luck!!!!! I know you can do it :-)!

    I’ve given up on goals, resolutions and bucket lists (never done those anyway ~ maybe I should start them?????) This year will only be: reading, writing, living and in that order lol. Here my little post on how to survive 2016 πŸ˜‰

  28. Love the photo. You must have been really quick to snap them while they were both sitting still!

    One of my bucket list items is also to get paid for something I wrote. Hasn’t happened yet, although I was offered $10 to include a sponsored post about some service I would never use in a million years and could never in good conscience recommend to anyone else. I declined.

  29. My bucket list has a number of items. At the top is to visit Paris again. Liked your list and think the house cleaning one is over rated. Here is my link today

  32. It’s always about the writing with me.
    And the clean house.
    How easy it would be to simply say “Hey, Linda Hill has this covered.”
    A great list. I’m still wrestling with mine.

  35. I think it’s a good idea to do something with that pot hole in the back yard. How about taking it bowling followed by dinner?

  41. Love the list mine is much the same but it’s not really a wish list is it. We need to think bigger! Visit Australia , New Zealand America and China!
    As for the dog Alex and he will find their own way of communicating. Xxxx
