Mah Goals – wc 17/02

Burn out.

Two words. That’s all I can say.

It’s my own fault. But… yeah…. 😦

Last Week

Email/text/jump on the people in my ‘potential beta’ list and get some firm commitments
I got two. That’s better than when I started, but not as much as I was hoping. But better than when I started. Must. Focus. On. Positives.

Continue to transfer SORB back to digital (at least half)
Just four chapters shy of half. Pretty damn good considering last weekend stank of fail. Heh, I’m actually quite pleased about it. In hindsight.

This Week

  • Recover. I did it to myself, but I need to spend some time being calm and taking care of myself. Reading. Catching up on my writing magazines.
  • Continue to transfer SORB back to digital, at least 10 chapters

A nice gentle week. I think that’s what I need.

Sorry it’s such a short one, guys, but I’m so delicate right now. Maybe, in the week, if I can pull myself together, I’ll be back with something of my usual pep.

I’ve got some cool pictures to show you, for instance. The photoshoot went really well (I know I mentioned that) so there will be some pics soon.

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 have never had a case of burnout. I think it’s because, when I was 11 and my wise old grandmother was helping me set up my very first business, she also taught me how to prevent burnout, and it’s really simple: “Always schedule time for yourself each and ever day, and don’t neglect it, don’t forego it, don’t forget it.”


  2. Hey, if you’re looking for a beta reader, I’ll happily volunteer. My current reading list is chock full of samey stuff. 🙂


    • Thanks very much. I’ll be sure to add you to the list of victims- I mean volunteers. :p

      It won’t be the start of March though; I’ll say that now. I’ve identified a core problem with the structure that really needs to be addressed before I can even consider sending it out. 😦

      Interesting though, I only spotted it because I’m working BACKWARDS through the text on this pass. Funny, right?
