IY: Mah Plans 09/02

goal shooting goals from open clip artWhat a weekend. -_-

Would it surprise you to hear that I’m ill again? No? Didn’t think so. Lots of coughing, spluttering, chesty coughs and sweats. Oh, and Sprog1 is ill too. *sigh* Temperature through the roof; spent all of yesterday with me on the sofa. I feel worse for him than I do for me.

And yet… when I’m ill, depending on the type of ill, I get mammoth amounts of work done. It’s insane, right?

Actions Last Week

Write 10k of the new novella ‘Dead or Alive’
14k. I should feel pleased about this but, instead, I’m scared. I should be two thirds of the way through the tale by now and instead I’m only half way. I won’t finish it in the week I have left, that’s for sure and it’s sprawled further than I wanted it to go. Kinda should have known.

Activities For The Week

Given the tightness of the schedule for ‘Dead or Alive’ I need to give time this week to doing what I can to get as close to the end as possible.

  • Write 10k of the new novella ‘Dead or Alive’
  • Send this month’s newsletter to subscribers
  • Contact Karen regarding ‘Silk Over Razor Blades’ formating
  • Meet with Dave about ‘Silk Over Razor Blades’ cover art


It’s going to be a rough week. Not for the amount of work to get done, but for the fact that I might not manage it. I’m ill, Sprog1 is ill, DSB has her sister visiting until Wednesday. All of these things will affect writing time.

What I need to do, perhaps more than work my arse off, is be prepared for the fact that I might not get everything done. And allow myself to not feel guilty about it.

Ha… can you say miracle?

Though at this point, I’m so close with ‘Dead or Alive’ that I’m almost prepared to U-turn; if it isn’t finished before Feb 16, depending on how much there is left, I may get those words down before I start on ‘On A Knife Point.’

Phew! I’ll let you know next week. ^_^new ileandra signature,

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.
