Writing Bucket List

One of my fellow poets at shared recently on her blog about having a writing bucket list.  Most people know what a bucket list is, but here's a reminder.  A bucket list is a list of activities you want to do before you die.  Well a writing bucket list is like that, but it's a list of things you want to do pertaining to writing.  For example, I always wanted to write a Haiku poem.  A couple weeks ago I accomplished that with a poem called "Guardian Owl:"

Guardian Owl

Wizened Ga'Hoole owl
Keeping watch over owlets
Until the Spring thaw.

For those of you who might not get the Ga'Hoole reference, visit here.  Kathryn Lasky is the author of a series of children's books about owls called "Guardians of Ga'Hoole."  The first book was recently made into a movie titled "Legend of the Guardian: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" which is the title of the first book in the series.

Other things that I've accomplished that could be on my writing bucket list was to become a published author.  I've done that too, of course!

I'm in the process now I've been inspired by my friend's blog to try to think of other ideas pertaining to writing, and start creating my own writing bucket list.

On a different note: Happy Stormy Leap Day!
