I have 'fac multa quae non faciam'. Is this right? I'm particulary unsure about the faciam.
I think the phrase is best represented by a relative clause of characteristic as you have done. You might try a subjunctive command using facias
for a more light-hearted rendition. Then, because subjunctives, even in commands, are freer in position, you have a lot more options for order as well. It also doesn't matter whether multa
are in the singular or plural (do many things / do much), so you have a great deal of options to choose from.
By now you will probably be in the process of developing your own style. With my style I would say Multa facias quae non faciam
. "You just go ahead and do that... I wouldn't"
