[life] 101 in 1001 - Updated Master List

Still working on putting together the master list for my second round of 101 in 1001, but you can read what I've written so far. Writing and personal are the two biggest categories at the moment, and I don't really see that changing, but we will see.

In the process of putting together the first 48 items, I decided what my first solo writing project of the year will be. I'm not ready to share a ton of details yet (mostly because I'm still working that out for myself), but it's a siblings + road trip book, and I think it will be fun.

In other writing news, during December Sarah and I took a hiatus from the rewrite of Talking Dead, but we have scheduled our first writing day to get back to it (this Sunday, because I have family plans on Saturday). I hope our time off was enough of a break; we basically wrote first drafts of five books in 2014, and then half a rewrite on Talking Dead, and we were burning out. We took the time to write some stuff that was just for fun. Now it's time to get back to work. Our goal is to finish Talking Dead and query agents within the first six months of the year (maybe the first three months, depending on how fast we can get back up to speed).

Adventures-wise, Saturday I have a mini road trip planned with some friends to go visit my sister, her husband, and my brother. It's a belated holiday celebration for us, a gift exchange and a dinner, and I think it will be fun. Then I go back to Kansas City for a week to finish packing, and next weekend, I move. It will be nice to have all my things in one place, especially my books and art supplies. Tomorrow, I intend to go get a library card here before I meet up with a high school friend for lunch, but we will see if I can manage that.
