November and December 2012 Challenges



You all know me, I love a challenge. Here are the challenges for the rest of the year.

2012 November, write a book.
2012 December, learn a new language.

For November 2012 I have the challenge to write a novel in a month, namely NaNoWriMo....
It's going okay at the moment. I'll write a summary of my writing during the last few days at some ponit later this evening, but in the meantime, let's just say it's going okay. It's not going brilliantly, but it's okay.

In December 2012 I will be revisiting a challenge I attempted before (albeit in a week, last time), namely speed-learning a language that I am unfamiliar with. Last time I had one badly written, ancient textbook on Swahili and gave myself seven days. I understandably failed. In December 2012, however, I'll be approaching things differently with a different language, and taking a whole month. One of the tools I'll be using will be this website: I just found www.memrise.com and I'm looking forward to it.
 
So I'm going to be busy for the next few weeks until the end of the year. Suggestions as to what my next challenges after that can be, in 2013, let me know.
