I've always been a restless kind of person, eager to explore, who much prefers to be on the go than sitting still (except when I'm reading or writing!), and loves to learn. Maybe it's why I write fiction, it both fuels my desire to delve into subjects I may never otherwise have considered (forensics, criminal law) and allows me to examine alternative lives through my characters. It's also reflected in my love for travel and walking and a constant sense of wanting to challenge myself to try new activities.
So, to celebrate this big birthday I decided to create an appropriate challenge. I'm calling it Sixty at Sixty, the goal being to complete sixty different activities, big and small, before my next birthday. Hopefully, most will be activities I've never done before, but some could be revisiting those that have fallen by the wayside over the years. Some will deserve a blog post of their own, others probably just a mention but I intend to keep track of my progress on this blog.
I've already got several ideas for places I want to visit and activities I'd like to try, but I'm always open to new ideas, so if you've got any suggestions, please let me know.
