The blossom is out and the last couple of days I’ve worn a tee-shirt. Yes, it’s been a gorgeous sunny end to winter and next week Spring officially begins with forecast temperatures in the mid-twenties.
The blooming of Spring and the crackle of Autumn are my favourite times of year. I’m always ready for the change. Spring marks the return of sunshine on bare arms, eating outdoors, a new wardrobe (at least, everything old is new again)…
Spring also seems to instill one with a yearning to get stuff done. The longer, warmer days inspire productivity and lofty goals for over-achievement.
As might be expected, I have a massive list of things I want to achieve. But the only one worth revealing here is this:
I want to finish the first draft of my current work in progress, which has been dragging on for far too long now. I just need to figure out how to write the ending, and then it will all be done.
That would be seriously cool. And I want to finish it before heading to the autumnal UK for a holiday and attendance at the World Fantasy Convention in Brighton. My trip commences in less than six weeks now. It’s going to be fabulous, but it would be so much more fabulous if my WIP is finished by then.
That is all.
This post is in response to today’s wanafriday theme, which is to share a bucket list for the new season. Check out these other wanafriday contributions.

Good luck finishing your WIP! I know you can do it!
Keep in mind, it doesn’t have to be perfect 😉
And your UK trip sounds amazing ~ you must be so excited! I know I would be!
Maybe I should have that tattooed on my hand… Does NOT have to be perfect. Repeat five times. Heh.
Thanks, Kim. (Yep, seriously excited about trip!)
You have to finish it, because I’m so looking forward to reading it!
Aw, thanks Liv. I will finish it! I have 5 weeks… Wah! (And then it’ll need heavy revising…)
I love spring and autumn, but autumn is probably my favorite. Leaves falling, crisp air, hot chocolate, Halloween…
That is a great goal. And yes — it doesn’t have to be perfect, it just needs to be written. 😉
Thanks, Erin. I think autumn might just pip spring for me too. But it’s close!
