I’ve seen some great lists today. Some have inspired me, some have intrigued me and some have got me thinking. So here’s my list of five things that I would like to someday accomplish, a sort of writer’s bucket list if you will.
1. Transform one of my works into a script.
Be it a movie or the pilot of a series, I think it would be fun (and perhaps it would pay off as well) to take a project I’ve done that really spoke to me, either short story or novel, and transform it for the screen.
2. Write YA
I would like to delve into the universe of YA and touch the younger readers, perhaps I’ll gain myself some younger fans as well.
3. Collaborate on a Project
I have never worked with another author or an illustrator and the idea of doing so is exciting and terrifying… definitely something I would love to try someday.
4. Create a Super Villian
Now, I am not entirely sure where the aforementioned person would exist – novel, short story or even a graphic novel… but I’d love to center a project around someone twisted.
5. Write a Mystery
Something that leaves the reader on the edge of their seat and unable to put it down until they’ve solved the puzzle… this may just be the hardest one.
I don’t know when I’ll accomplish all of this, or even if. This isn’t written in any order of preference, either. Just the five things that (at this moment) I want to do most.
What are YOUR five things?
