IY: Mah Plans 28/09/15

I’m so sore. -_-

DSB has no mercy when it comes to being gentle and though the LARP was incredible, I ache in parts of my body that even the gym can’t touch.

Actions Last Week

~Beat ‘Dead And Alive: Episode Two’ and then . . . do an Elsachecking off feedback
. . . yup. It hurts and I kinda want to take it back to the group, but I can’t keep taking the same section. I’ve been far more brutal with it this time and shaved off another 300 words. I have to stop there—I have to. I know if I take any more, the prose will no longer sound like me. I don’t want that. Time to do an Elsa.

~Work through x5 chapters of beta comments
Only three, but one of them needed major tweaking which slowed me down. The relationship between Lenina and Shawn is clear now as is how it grows, but I’ve effectively rewritten 2,000 words of a chapter with the latest round of revisions. Can’t wait to rea dit through again. ^_^

~Let DSB enjoy the LARP
My plan is actually to discuss this next week with the next fantasy creature on my list so all I’ll say now is that the trip was AMAZING, the game was AMAZING, the experience is one I long to repeat for many, many more years. This is a hobby that is a veritable GOLDMINE of idea fodder and opportunities for character observation and study . . . it’s also great fun! ^_^

Activities For This Week

  • Go through thumbnails from DaveJ and choose final for ‘Walking The Razor’s Edge’ cover art
  • Work through x5 chapters of beta comments
  • Clean up ‘Episode Two’ and get it entered into both Amazon and Smashwords properly (BY WEDNESDAY).


Given that Self Doubt and Panic were both so prevalent last week, at this moment in time I’m totally chilled and down with what I need to do. I’m looking forward to working steadily through my objectives and confident that I can meet them all.

. . . which is a nice result of the LARP I think! Maybe DSB really should go more often.

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.
