Why it’s on the list: When I was a kid I had an article published in the local paper and that led me to want to be a journalist for a while, till I decided to be a car mechanic, or a psychologist, or something else altogether. I’ve done lots of writing since on local level but to have my name in the national press (preferably the Guardian!) would be fab.
How/when I’ll judge this task to be completed: When I have sent a letter to a national newspaper and see it in print – and can scan and show here.
FAILED – I did send a letter to the Guardian’s Family section (a letter to …) but as yet it hasn’t been published yet
