IY: Mah Plans – 22/12

goal shooting goals from open clip artA day late. Oops. But really, there isn’t much to put in here so that’s no biggie! :p

Last week

Pretty good. Most things done or those things that had to change part way through started in a good way. Wheeeeee!

Chase up any Caladria tales that we don’t have yet
Yep. All the stories we’re going to get from this batch we now have. It’s SO exciting, you guys are in for a real treat when the first issue comes out.

Edit/proof (in dialogue with the authors) the stories that I do have. Complete at least three.
Got two done for good. One more on the cusp. Not bad considering there was quite a bit of back and forth between me and about eight other people. I think I’ll just allow myself to be happy about that result.

Try again to outline and begin draft of second Fab Fables story
No. Just no and this is because…

Edit first Fab Fables story using completed set of critique from Phoenix Writers
…This story needs a do over. Not in that the critique was bad (it was actually very positive). More that the story diverged from where it was supposed to go and in order to include those missing elements I’ll need to rewrite huge chunks just to remain within the word count. *sigh* Good thing I enjoy doing this! 😉

Ensure my newsletter is sent out in good time – if you want access to the fantasy piece I’m writing just for subscribers, be sure to sign up!
Done. I hope you guys are enjoying the story. 😉 It’s the base for a whole sequence of novels I have planned in that world. Looking forward to introducing you to all those characters! 😉

This Week

Very little. I need to be realistic here: the very fact that this post is late tells me that life and family are going to worm their way into my usual work time. As well they should. If I can’t slow down for the festive season then when can I? But there are a couple of things I want to make sure are done regardless.

  1. Finish reading the last fantasy book of my 2014 Book Challenge and write the review
  2. Finish rewriting portions of my (first) Fab Fables story
  3. Outline my plans for the new year in readiness to publish
  4. Enjoy Christmas

That last one is a given, almost. Looking at all the preparations and festive cheer around here, I’d say I’m doing very well. Oh… and while I have made my own decorations this year, it’s not quite these bad boys.

Completed stars!

Remember these? 😉


Oh well. Maybe next year, eh? :p

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.
