Summer Biggest List

Biggest Dream- Three Ninja Pigs makes the NY Times bestseller list

Biggest Regret- That I didn't write Go The F*ck to Sleep

Biggest Hurdle- Cannot multi-task

Biggest Accomplishment- started working out four times a week (which means... no writing, blogging, cleaning, etc. See Biggest Hurdle)

Biggest Mistake- promised my daughter a puppy for her eighth birthday

Biggest Sacrifice- gave up one Starbucks coffee frap per day

Biggest Weakness- still drink two Starbucks coffee fraps per day

Biggest Goal- To make it into a Lisa-Laura, Elana, & Friends Vlog.

Do you have any "biggies" this summer?

Just finish my manuscript... That's my biggest everything.

Great list, Corey! My biggest goal this summer is to start submitting...

Megan K. Bickel said...

Excellent list, Corey. My biggest goal is to get myself organized and life simplified. That way I can be ready to hit the ground running this school year!

I'm with Megan!

Good luck with the puppy :)

Joanne Fritz said...

Corey, you are too funny! Wish you'd written Go the F to Sleep! Ahahaha.

Oh yes! I hope Three Ninja Pigs DOES make the NYT bestseller list. That would be great!

I'd just like to slow down and write more. My life has been crazy hectic. I've accomplished nothing as a writer since I sent out all those manuscripts and queries after the NJ conference (and haven't heard from most of them yet)

I love this list! I'm hoping for some successes too this year. :)

I started an exercise routine too...again! I'm really hoping I can stick with it this time!

I love this list idea! Hope you don't mind if I steal it and try to figure out my Biggest ones, too :)
Being pregnant helped me with my Starbucks frap addiction, but still a sacrifice!

One of my summer biggies is happening this month and the other summer biggie happened yesterday.

The one that is happening this month is Christmas in July on my blog. Daily posts, daily giveaways.

The summer biggie that happened yesterday was my son's graduation party.

Now I'm avoiding the kitchen and all the cleaning up I need to do from the party, lol.

Biggest surprise on the list: TWO coffee fraps a DAY!?? No wonder you can't multitask. :) I'm surprised you can even sit still.

Also, I love this list. I'm totally stealing it. (Can I?)

Oh, yeah, I think we ALL regret not writing "Go the F#@k to Sleep"!

My biggest goal for the summer is to finish our home improvement projects - all of them. Tile my office floor, paint office and laundry room, and finish window frames. It's a lot, but I think we can do it.

My biggest writing goal is to submit to at least 20 agents or get an agent, whichever comes first. That's a big one for me.

I loved this post! Don't worry about the puppy. I promised my son one this summer... and my daughter got one too! That's right, there are now 2 dogs where before there were none. They have been great picture book-idea providers!
