To Do: Leave the Country for a Week

Todolistblog.com will take a weeklong pause while I am miles away from computers in Mexico! Please keep sending me your lists and leaving comments. I love reading them and your reactions to the lists help inform the questions that I will ask the list authors when I interview them for the To-Do List book, to be published by Simon & Schuster in fall 2007.

If you have a list in a language other than English, please send me the original list along with a translation.

Send your real, handwritten lists to:
P.O. Box 40128
San Francisco, CA 94140
Deadline: July 1, 2006, but the sooner the better.

Tech-savvy? Feel free to send a scan of your list too to todolistblog@gmail.com. But eventually I will need the real thing.

Please include: Your name, mailing address, email address and phone number.

Feel free to include a short note about what was going on in your life when you wrote the list; what prompted you to write it; what does the list mean to you; how do you the feel about the person who you were when you wrote it. No need to write a novel, just a sentence, two or three, handwritten or typed, is fine.

If your list is chosen, I will contact you to interview you about the story behind the list—in other words, what was going on in your life when you wrote it. Your contribution can be anonymous in the published book, so don't hesitate to send in lists with revealing items—those are often the best kind.

Questions? Contact me at todolistblog@gmail.com.

Hasta pronto!

P.S. Oh, and by the way, I am going to be part of a QUIRKYALONE BIKE TOUR in France in September. If you are interested, go to quirkyalone.net for more information.
