Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Write a Manga


Cynthia Leigh has written 4 entries about this goal


I’d written most of the story in screen writing format, but now I can’t find it. It might still be on the Hard drive of an old laptop, but I’ll have to get conversion kit to pull it up.

I do still have all the other materials, and I’ve found a way to get an artist to get me started.

Almost there!

I just finished an adv. screenwriting class where I made my project my manga. I’ve done a treatment, character description, synopsis, and I’ve even written the entire story!!! I’m now in revisions and I’m looking to make some interesting additions to the story before converting it into ‘comic book’ format on .celtx and sending it to a small publisher in the UK who seems like the best fit for my work!

On hold...

I haven’t had any luck finding the kind of artist I want to draw my pitch to Tokyopop, so I’m going to see about converting my stories into short stores, selling them to magazines/etc, and then publishing them in a novel-format. Maybe then I’ll be able to convert them back into manga form, and pitch them to Tokyopop. LOL

Working on it...

I’m currently working on a proposal for Tokyopop that I should have finished in the next 2 weeks.


I want to:
