Three Things I Want To Share


the number three, clipart animalOkay this is a quick, almost ranty sort of post, some of it good, some of it bad. I’ll start with the thing that annoys me (*shakes fist*) and then make myself feel better by moving on to the good bits.


Jennifer Aniston’s Pet Dog Dies
What the fuck? I’m doing my usual pre-work internet perusal right now and just as I was clicking out of my Hotmail email account, I spot a piece of news at the bottom of the page. A lil picture of Jennifer Aniston and the tag line beneath; ‘Jennifer Aniston’s Pet Dog Dies’ (and NO I’m not giving you the damn link; I’m not helping to generate sympathetic publicity for this woman – much o.O).

Seriously? Seriously?! This is news now? This is worthy of MSN’s news page that is viewed by millions all over the world? SERIOUSLY?! Fuck it, if this is what’s out there worth reading and looking at right now, is it any wonder that I 1) refuse to watch television and 2) don’t pay attention to the news any more?!

GUH! Its wound me up so much, made me so angry, that I really hope I have a chance to cool down before I get into the office. Otherwise woe betide the customer who dares to send me a snotty letter (I got one yesterday, hand written, impossible to read, basically saying ‘give me money or I’ll do ya!’). Pffft!


Gallery
I have two galleries at the moment. They are in test form, so you won’t see them in the links at the top of these pages. Instead, you’ll find them in the list of pages on the right hand side of my home page and the blog tab. Or here…
TestGallery1
TestGallery2
I would appreciate thoughts and opinions on which one you feel best portrays me. Harder for those of you who don’t know me, I’m sure, but for those who do, it would help. I already have a slight leaning towards one of the pair, but it would still be nice to know what you think.


80 Journal Writing Prompts
I think this is a great idea. Yes, this blog is primarily about my growth a a writer, but as you can see from the category of this post, I talk about my life too. I’m also a fan of little ‘challenges’. I’m already taking part in WordPress’ Post A Week drive, encouraging bloggers to write at least one post every week. That’s easy now.

What I’m going to try instead is to write about a subject picked by somebody else. So… I have a list of ‘writing prompts’ and my plan is to tackle two of these subjects every week. They should have their own category; I’m going to list them under ’80 Post Challenge’ so that they are searchable in the menus on the right. All being well, I’ll start this tomorrow. It should be fun! ^_^

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.

  2. I must admit, the second gallery is growing on me, but in terms of showing off the professional, slightly arty face, the first gallery is what does it.

    Hmm. I think I’ll use some of the pictures in the second gallery in posts, so people still get to see them. πŸ™‚ Thanks m’dear!
