NaNoWriMo 2012 Idea 3

I’m behind on my emails again. I used to read them late at night, while doing feeds with the boys, but the light from my mobile has started to wake them up. So now, when doing night feeds I just kinda sit there in the dark and try not to fall asleep. šŸ˜¦ I don’t always succeed. This does mean, however, that as of today I have 350 emails unread in my inbox. All wonderful blog posts from you fine people, things that I want to catch up on as I feel horribly cut off from you all.

The only reason that number is as low as it is (low, you cry in disbelief!) is because I’ve been using my ‘time off’ to read through some of the emails. And reading the occasional one or two during the day. I imagine that taking part in NaNoWriMo this year will only make it harder to stay on top of them, but its about balance. I’m planning to be leisurely about it this year, so I might use weekends for blog related stuff, rather than continuing on whatever novel I happen to be writing.

And what novel will I be writing? Well that’s still up to you guys. ^_^ This is idea number three and in a move that might (not) surprise you, its about vampires. In fact, its the next novel in line after SORB, which, of course is a trilogy. The second part of the story follows Ileandra directly after the events of the first where things hot up a bit for her family. It’s not quite a rewrite, but something I’ve started several times and never been able to finish – probably because I was still agonising over SORB. With that done and dusted, its time to keep moving on.

nice red vampire lips with blood and teeth, from OpenClipArtWorking Title: Walking The Razor’s Edge
Genre: Supernatural
Summary: Coming to terms with her new life as a vampire, the peace Ileandra experiences is shaken up when Red Fang kidnap her new friend Shawn Jackson.

I agonised over that summary, not wanting to give you too much of a spoiler to the SORB. If I were to tell you more, then most of the surprises of SORB are moot. So, you’ll have to wait I’m afraid. :p

But this would be yet another interesting project to play around with and perhaps a sensible novel to work on since SORB is now done. Let me know what you think!

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.

  1. I remember those nights. And days for that matter. I’d keep trying and see if they get used to the light. šŸ™‚

    Keeping up with the email notifications of blog posts is a daily struggle. If I let one day go by, I’m doomed. So, I know where you’re coming from. And you’re right, NaNo will get in the way but I have a feeling that there will be fewer blog posts in November because a lot of people will be too busy with NaNo!

    At least, that’s what I’m hoping will happen…


  3. This sounds cool. Like the title. Plus, if you’ve already begun the series, you owe it to your readers to complete it.

    We’ll just have to see when all the choices are in. šŸ™‚ I’m not doing NaNo, but a month of my buddies blogging less would be a mixed blessing. I might have more time for my own revisions, but I’ll miss everyone’s posts!
