Ileandra Offers Her Thanks…

Yes, its important to me. Particularly at a time in my life when lots of things are hard and painful and annoying and sad and difficult. Its important to say thank you.

So… to remind me that its not all bad; here are my thank yous.

Dear Universe,
Thank you for my health, my job, my family, my friends, my own sense of optimism, my pride, my self worth, my home, my own sense of humour, the knowledge that things don’t always stay the same and the maturity I have to deal with that, the ability to take the bad with the good, the knowledge that those who get more than they deserve will eventually have to pay it back.

Thank you for the more physical, practical and material things that make my day run smoother; a comfortable bed, a fabulous computer, a kitchen that functions, a bathroom that functions, a bike that stops me having to walk or take the bus, a good pair of shoes when my trainers give out on me, good, clean clothes that fit and are comfortable, pens when I want them, paper when I want it, a mobile phone that gives me music on the go and a stereo at home for music in the house, a games console to waste a few hours decompressing and relaxing while charging little 3d character’s into holes, an extra set of duvets for that comfortable bed because its now FRIKKIN FREEZING at night.

Thank you for the creative outlets I have which stop me going absolutely bonkers; two – oh yes, not one but TWO weekly radio shows, my drawing, my writing, my RPGs and my one of project of fabulous must-do-it-again-next-year doom!.

Thank you for the people who love and care and cherish me, my talent and my company, things which, though they might seem small on paper, or a great boost to flagging moral. The people who understand and encourage and believe in what I do, even by saying something as small and simple as ‘So, what is it you’re doing again?’

Thank you for the growing confidence and assuredness I feel in my ability to write well and be received positively by my audience. Thank you for the dream which, through this blog and various other means I will eventually achieve by seeing my name on a book spine on the shelf of book stores across the world.

Yours Truly
Ileandra Young

Yep. ^_^
That about covers it I reckon.

And, to add to that, there are of course, thanks for the growing list of readers of this blog. It is important to me that you know you are welcomed and wanted here and that I value each and every hit my site statistics tells me I’ve had on a daily basis. You all mean a lot to me:

Dear Readers,
Thank you for joining me on my journey of self understanding, growth and maturity. Thank you for sticking by me and being open to questions and the requests for feedback Thank you for taking the time to have a peep at what I’m up to, even if its just to see what on earth I’m rambling about today. Thank you for not judging, or, if you do, keeping it to yourself :p. Thank you for your positivity and support.

Just… thank you.

Ileandra! x

I think, now that I’ve rambled enough, I’ll make sure my next entry is something of an update report, either on the proper completion of my NaNo Project, or returning to work on Silk Over Razor Blades.

Peace outtie peeps! xXx

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.
