Here are some other things that I do.
Have you ever considered writing a novel? Write it. November is National Novel Writing Month. I “won” in 2005, 2006, and 2010. Yes, you’re correct; writing 50,000 words in one month is sort of insane. But it’s a pretty neat experience, and I would recommend it to just about anybody.
Check out www.mob-rule.com/counties, where you can quickly generate cool state maps with the counties shaded by whether or not you’ve been to them. Click here to see if I’ve made it to your favorite US county (or parish or “independent city”) or Canadian county, municipality, or census division yet.
