Before I’m thirty.


A few weeks ago a friend of mine turned thirty and it got me thinking about what I’d like to do before I turn 30.  And then

a member of my writing group here in Florida posted a few things today on the things she wanted to do before she was thirty and it got me thinking about my own list of goals.  I’ve decided to do the same and post what my list was, just for funsies.

Things I’d like to do before I’m thirty. 
1)   Get a publishing deal from one of the big five
2)   Meet my agent, my BFF from Canada, and all the members of my critiquing group. 
3)   Go to Mardis Gras.  (I keep telling myself I will do it this year, but it never happens.  So next year, I’m MAKING it happen. )
4)   Go to comic-con in San Diego
5)   Meet one famous person.
And there you have it.  My List.  I’d love to know what your list is.  Feel free to comment below.

    >well, i'm crossing off winning a t-shirt in a food challenge after last night's failed attempt to eat 20 nuclear wings in 20 minutes. so, that leaves… um… going on an african safari, visiting lapland, and landscaping my backyard. exciting, huh? your list sounds better — good luck with those things, they're all good goals! 🙂

    Hmmm. I guess I'd have to do one for the before 40, huh? LOL. I'm an old fart. LOL.

    Here's hoping you get them all done!

    Lynn: I can't wait to see your list. And you're not old. There is no such thing. 😀

    >Sadly, I turned 30 two years ago. *sigh* 🙂

    But before I'm 40, I EXPECT to have a book. Hopefully in my hands by then. LOL.

    >I'm with Larissa. I've been 30 for a while, but I expect to have a book in my hands before 40. WELL BEFORE.

    Good goals, Jess. Can't wait to be a part of at least one of them!
