New Mission 101

I've done several Mission 101s since I first heard about it, including several personal lists and a farm-specific list. With the exception of maybe the first one, I've fallen off the wagon and failed pretty miserably. Not this time! I am motivated & dedicated this time. I'm spreading it out less and trying to focus on five specific areas for improvement that I feel I should dedicate some serious quality time to.

For those unfamiliar with mission101, it is a list of 101 goals you plan to accomplish in 1001 days.

I wish you the best of luck this time around with your comprehensive list. I look forward to your updates and thanks for linking to Camp NaNo. I'm thinking about trying to do NaNoWriMo this year and the camp sounds pretty helpful.

Thanks so much! Camp is a good way to ease into NaNo, since it lets you pick your own wordcount. Let me know if you join up! I'm Ahavah over there as well.
