I think it's been far too long since I posted some empty boxes for ๐ŸŒœ HuntersMoon . *Smirk*

I have created a master 'bucket list' which is actually more like a lifelong to do list, but maybe they're the same thing. Anyway, if you wanna check it out, it's at Elle's Lists  . Each category has a sublist (linked in the heading), which has more detail (like weekly or monthly tasks to check off as they're done). Yup, there's a Writing.com category. *Wink*

Right now, all my spare time is being spent on family history research for one of Steve's uncles who is terminally ill and has asked me for information on his side of the family, and working on a wedding present for my sister who is getting married in July. Because they've both got a sense of urgency to them, those have been my priorities.

I'm making good progress on these goals too though:
*Box* Write at least one poem a month
*Box* Read 120 books in 2018
*Box* Write at least one book review a month
*Box* Post at least once a week in my Wordpress blog
*Box* Read and comment on other blogs at least once a week

I haven't been very successful at these ones though:
*Box* Write at least one short story a month (haven't written any yet this year!)
*Box* Approach at least one author/blogger/publisher re interview once a month (any volunteers?)

How's everyone else doing with their empty boxes? *Pthb*
Guess you should have joined 12 Stories!

For work boxes? Fine. For fun boxes? I don't have any because there's just no time. How sad is that?

I still have your interview Qs. I'll get them filled out at some point.

empty boxes. i would love to do them. but i am so busy. im even having a hard time keeping up on my blog..

i think if you can accomplish even one task a day. that is progress and you should feel good about it. keep up the good work.

I know you've all been waiting for an announcement of when the Quills and PreQuills ceremonies will be held. No, don't even bother telling me you missed me, I know you only care about the Quills. *Laugh*

Although we could conduct the ceremonies old-school style in an in-and-out, everyone seems to enjoy the live video feeds. But to do those, you need decent internet access. *Rolleyes*

We got the message we'd be switching to fibre this month. Yay! *Delight* Then they turned our broadband off. Boo! *Rant* So we were left with no internet at all. Then they turned the broadband back on, but it's going at a fraction of the speed it was before. Then we had a power cut, so back to no internet. *Facepalm* It's like a Monty Python comedy of errors. Right now, the power's back on, but the internet is iffy.

Can you imagine living in a house with two teenagers with no decent internet? *Shock* It's a scary thing, I tell ya.

So as soon as I have decent, reliable internet, I'll schedule the two ceremonies, and I'll make sure to advertise the dates here in the newsfeed so you can see them. And I'll give you as much notice as I can, on the understanding that we don't want to drag this out until we're hosting them in November. *Smirk* I'm overseas for pretty much the whole of July, so we really wanna get it sorted before then. I know, that's months away, but time flies, doesn't it? *Wink*
I was in a house with two teens and no internet/no power for 14 days once. It was not fun at all! I hope everything gets sorted soon, not just for the Quills but also for you!

LOL I feel for you on that 'no decent internet'. I finally have decent internet, and I'm still giddy about it!
Looking forward to the ceremonies, Elle...Thanks for your update. Safe and fun travels in July, if I forget to say it. *Heart**Delight*

If you're concerned about connectivity and the dates are suitable for me I may be able to host the feed so it keeps going if you lose internet.

Just happened to pop into WDC today for the first time in ages when I had no super specific thing I wanted to find real quick (I save lots of real life info in my notepad). *Laugh* Felt like stopping by to say hey. Been too fucking long! *Heart*
Elle  
Yeah, it's definitely been way too fucking long.

Elle,
Could you remind me when this month's Quill Awards are, please? I feel I should know...but I don't!
Thanks, love.

SORRY IT'S SO LATE, BUT I'VE BEEN ON VACATION AND HAVEN'T BEEN KEEPING UP AROUND HERE AS MUCH AS I SHOULD BE. *Blush*

I'm always missing milestones on here, so I know how it is. *Smile* Thank you for your kind wishes!

Does anyone else have an online bucket list? I haven't yet found a good way to store mine online.

The best thing I've found so far is a Wordpress plugin, but I can't justify paying for a business Wordpress account just to use this plugin. *Rolleyes*
Elle  
Hmm, I'm just trying out Wunderlist.com. This might work. Not sure how easy it is to share my lists yet though. Maybe you can only share with another Wunderlist user or by typing in specific email addresses? That's not so user friendly. Sigh.

I use Toodledo for regular to dos... might work for a bucket list. But Trello might be better. Both have free versions, last time I checked *Smile* Good luck, Elle!
