Progress is good!

Slow progress, that’s for sure, but its still progress. I’m using a new idea on the re-read front. All of my work, after all, starts with a re-read. Rather than editing as I go, which really does affect how the prose reads and disrupts my flow, I’m making notes in my glittering purple note book.
Lol, its quite funny; I used to use that book for campaign notes in DnD. Now its a tool to take my life forward in positive directions.

I just had a chat with my mum; funny, that I feel much lighter and brighter from sharing my plans with her. And with you guys of course.

I’m at 33% of my read through. So far, I have notes that seem to indicate that two chapters need to be chopped. I mean chopped to the point that they barely exist any more. It marks the point where Ileandra makes her first significant kill; for some reason, when I wrote it, I made it stretch over two chapters. Why?! Its slow, clunky, and drags the pace right down into the mud where snails overtake me. Laughing. -_- So… by working on tightening those chapters I’ll end up reducing the ridiculously huge word count and step up the pace. I’ve thought for a while that it was a bit slow. This will help.

I’m going to read a little more in a few minutes. First I have some of my at-home-learning to do first. I’m going to build my own website for this by the way. Dunno if I told you that before, but I am. This blog is only part of my


Heh, yeah.

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.
