Fellow listers, remember that you didn’t fail if you didn’t do a list per day or if you aren’t done yet. You can complete your lists any time! One of the things that I love about lists is that they really capture who I am right now–in just a year, I would answer many of these questions completely differently. So I try to finish up lists soon after the challenge is over if I didn’t complete them during the original run, but there’s no reason you can’t go back and finish them any time, and that goes for unfinished lists from 2013 too!
