#15kInMay First Update

Yes, this is a bit late. Oops. Probably should have posted this on Tuesday, but a combination of too many birthdays and general fatigue made it impossible. o.O Well, not impossible so much as I just didn’t feel like it. :p

I said I’d be taking part in the challenge; aiming to write 15,000 words in May. Well, despite the long procession of guests and celebrations I have been writing! Mainly on my phone and on paper (paper, what’s that?!) but it has been happening. When I kicked off last week I had 1,689 words by day two. Now, this is what my chart looks like.15k In May Wordcount

Phew! Not so bad then. 🙂

Also, it’s not just me mad enough to take part in this. I thought I’d point out some of the other mad folk taking part in the 15k in May word count challenge. Here they are:
Maria Smith
Dee Kirkby
Wayne Kelly
Ruth Livingstone
Lynne (In Peterborough)

I don’t think I’ve missed anybody, but if I have, give me a quick slap and I’ll add them on.

Hope you guys are all doing well and carefully, gleefully plugging away. Catch you next week! For another (hopefully on time) update!

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. Well done, good to hear you got some words done. Damn our pesky families! Hope the twins are well. Love the thermometer – what a great idea. I’m off to pinch one….
