Mah Goals – wc 07/10

This weekend was rammed with things I’ve not done before. Things like directing a photo shoot and clipping my boys into front facing car seats. ^_^ All very exciting and things that we’re even included on my list.

200 followers notificationOh and the blog hit 200 followers on Friday! Thank you all, so much (!!!) everyone who has followed in recent days/weeks and those of you who have been with me from early on. The fact that you’re sticking around means a great deal.

Sooo… how did I do last week?

Check competitions in WM and WF and pick most suitable
Done. I’ve even started drafting my entry for November. Woohooo! Got some pretty good helpful feedback from the guys at the Phoenix too.

Finish catch up with last SORB critique and outline plan for November (NaNoWriMo) and beyond
Yep, done but for the plan. I changed my mind right at the last moment and decided that I’m going to press on with Slippers & Chains in November and save SORB for next year. I feel much happier with that clear in my mind actually. ^_^

Finish those bloody transcripts and start the next set
Erm… I did one. That’s good, right?
*face palm*
The other deadlines are out of the way now so I can give real focus to this. I need to, to be honest, since I have lots of things to pay for. That means I need to do things that I know will earn me money. *sigh*

Get the next Meeting Each Other story to my beta(s)

Okay. Looking at that there are some very clear holes in the work I’ve been doing. This week I’m going to fix that.

  • Complete at least three transcripts and invoice for them
  • Send out copies of Vicki & Lara to competition winners (on Saturday)
  • Finish first draft of the new AI story (for the competition)

There. That’s it. That’s all I want to do.
Focus on those transcripts. I think part of the problem for me is that the client has expressed no desire to have these documents quickly, meaning that I can take my mine. But… I should still do them. It’s about balance. I’ll feel happier in myself knowing that more of them are done anyway. That means I’ll have time and space to write ‘fun things’ utterly guilt free in later months. And that’s the point, right? 🙂

I hope you’re all well, people.
I have been doing the ‘blog run’ in ten minute blasts over the past couple of weeks. I enjoy checking in and seeing what you’re up to. If I’ve not made it to you yet I do apologise; I think there may be something wrong with my reader. And my emails for that matter. *sigh*

I’m going out now; taking the boys to the park to enjoy the grey skies and slightly chilly wind. :p Catch you later in the week!

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.
