Thursday Thirteen #146

Hello Thursday! As another week is coming to an end, I have realized that May is just about over. This means that we’re coming up on the sixth month of the year and we’re almost half-way through 2008. As scary and amazing as that sounds, I think that means it’s time to take inventory and see where we all stand.

For me, I think that a list of thirteen things I still need to accomplish this year would be a good list and give an outline of sorts as to what I need to do with the time left in ’08. Have you gotten your yearly ‘to-do list’ all crossed off? What do *you* still want / need to do. I’d love for you to let us know in the comments.

  1. I would make one of those lists for myself, but I know I’d probably only do about three or four things on it. I could save myself the time of making the 13 list and only make a 4 list, but then I’d only do, like, one thing if that.

    How ’bout I just cheer you on? Good luck! πŸ˜›

    By the way, I found your blog on and since you’re obviously into writing, I wanted to let you know about a new e-zine that me and a few writer friends are putting together.

    It’s called The Oddville Press.

    You should check us out if you’re interested–or better yet, submit something!

    Thanks and bunch, and good luck again! *jumps up and down cheering* πŸ˜›

  2. Steph,

    Thanks for the info and the encouragement. I’ll check out the e-zine you’re working on! Hope to see more of your comments here in the future.
