Mah Goals – wc 09/12

It’s Monday again! Blimey that went fast. I don’t even feel my week touch the sides any more (yes, that’s a jumbled metaphor) I just blink and all seven days have gone.

ill woman in bed with thermometer from open clipart.comIt’s been a bit of a weird week too. Two nights ago was *counts* the sixth time I’ve woken up in the middle of the night with a gurgling stomach, itching palms and a burning need to visit the loo (TMI?). My body is reacting to something I’m eating or drinking to the point that I can’t sleep and I’m really, really ill. And I just can’t figure out what it is.

Going to have to start keeping a food diary or something because I don’t know how much more of it I can take. My doctor took a tonne of blood tests last week so hopefully *fingers crossed* there will be some information in that I can use to help me out. All I need to know is what food/additive I need to stop eating. I promise, I’ll even do it! So long as I stop feeling like crap (seemingly) once a fortnight. *sigh*

Getting stuff done though, despite the cough and general ‘icky’ feeling, has been good.

Last Week

Clown juggling coloured balls from open clip art .comComplete at least half a transcript
Completed one, started another. Feeling good.

Finish editing ‘Send In The Clowns’ or whatever I chose to call it and enter it to a competition
I sent it to Flash500. Feels like a bit of a cop out, but I couldn’t really be bothered to find somewhere else. I know, I know, that will learn me, right? >.<

Finish final line edits on ‘Carol, Niall & Lin’ ready to send for proofing
Done, but I need to make a final decision about title before I let it go.

Write another 1,000 (at least) of ‘Bill’
Yeeeeeeeeah… no. Got distracted. 😦

Check my usual sites (daily) for some paid work
Yep. Got an article down and set off. So that’s good news.

I have a lot to do this month. Looking back at last week’s post has just made me realise that. Ooops. So I need to step it up a notch in order to get everything done. Let’s see….

Goals For This Week

  • Complete my current transcript; it’s a good 40mins left of a three-voice interview, so it will be tough. But if I can get it done, I’ll be looking good.
  • Try again with 1,000 words of ‘Bill.’
  • Write up draft of ‘Just Desserts’ I wrote in Nero’s last week and complete it.
  • Make final changes (based on feedback) for anthology offering and then put it to one side ready for exterior editing.
  • Come up with backup plan for ‘Carol, Niall & Lin’ cover art.
  • Leave SORB alone! Don’t change it, don’t mess with it, nothing!


Now… you may remember at the beginning of November I was celebrating the incredible milestone of 500 posts to this blog. If not, see here. Well, the give-away I was running has had several extra days, however there hasn’t been as much interest as I was hoping for. So, unfortunately, I think, at this time I’ll hold onto those books and give them away at another time. Don’t worry though, as time progresses I’ll have more things to give away and fun events to be involved with, so keep an eye on this space.

Until then, have a great week and I’ll see you all at the other end of it. MWAH!

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.
