My 22 Things

Amazing, super creative Angie Richmond has issued a challenge that I love! Check it out, and link up your own list today. This was a fun way to really think about things I want to accomplish.

How Does It Work?
22 Things is a Creative Change Challenge. By signing up, you are announcing to the world - and more importantly yourself - that you are breaking free of the long standing idea that in order to make changes in your life, you have to do BIG things. 22 Things is about making a list twenty-two small steps you can take - right now - to change your life.

My 22 Things:

1.       Develop a regular writing schedule.
2.       Go to the beach more.
3.       Allow myself to make mistakes.
4.       Give more hugs.
5.       Join a Pilates class.
6.       Ride my bike instead of driving.
7.       Read more indie authors.
8.       Finish my three quilts in progress.
9.       Get a plant and keep it alive.
10.   Spend more time without my phone.
11.   Make more lists; they work.
12.   Finish the outline for my new WIP.
13.   Edit my NaNo novel.
14.   Try new foods.
15.   Have one technology-free day a week. (Or at least an hour)
16.   Write in my journal.
17.   Spend more time with friends.
18.   Take a dance class.
19.   Stop and watch the sunset.
20.   #Wordmonger!
21.   Do a 10K run.
22.   Indulge in chocolate occasionally.


  1. FANTASTIC list, Lillie! Welcome aboard :) *HUGS*

  2. A great list! Especially a fan of the first 1, 2 3, 14, 19, 22. :D

  3. Hi Lillie, just linked to your lovely blog from the
    22 Things challenge.
    Love the list, especially the chocolate and the technology free day, good idea! And the hugs, gotta love more hugs!
    Enjoy your 22 steps!

    1. Why thank you :D I can never get enough hugs or chocolate!!

  4. I don't know what #wordmonger means, but I like the sound of it. My favorites are 4, 9 and 13. I look forward to watching your progress.

    1. #Wordmongering is on Twitter. We all start writing and go for thirty minutes and then post our word count at the end. It is solely responsible for my NaNo novel :)

  5. I love your number 9! I seem to kill my plants on a regular basis. :(

    1. Me too, Stephanie! I'm going to start with a Fern and see how that goes :)

    2. I even forget to remove old cut flowers from the vase in the living room! My daughter's recently taken charge of flowers and plants in the more may survive, and cut flowers will be replaced more frequently! It was a running joke that dead, wilted, papery brown flowers adorned our lounge more than live ones!

  6. This is an awesome list! A lot of these things would be on my list if I made one. Great job :)

    By the way, I've tagged you in the Lucky 7 meme!
