1/ Write 20,000 words
I’m joining in with Ruth’s challenge to write 1,000 words every week day in March. It feels a lot less stressful than #NaNoWriMo (although I’m still toying with doing that in November…) and I’m not holding myself to any high standards here. It’s just 20,000 words. And if I do half of that? It’s still 10,000 more than I’d written already. As it is, I’ve already written 2,500 this month, which is already something.
2/ Get my hair dyed pink
This is a very fun to do, but one that has been on my list for almost a decade (writing that makes me feel phenomenally old). I got put off by a snooty hairdresser who was very scathing about the idea, but I’m older and wiser now and I have a very lovely hairdresser (I go here!). So it’s happening. Before I’m too much older and I have to type ‘more than decade’ in that sentence.
3/ Make progress on my quilt
I made a quilt for Benjamin for Christmas, and it’s one of my favourite projects ever. I’ve bought the fabric for another which is due to be a gift for an expectant friend; as such, there’s a bit of a deadline on it. As such, ideally I’d like it at least half done by the end of the month. So far, the fabric has been washed and ironed and I’ve cut out two squares… if I could have everything cut and the top sewed by 31st March, that would be golden.
