IY: Mah Plans 26/10/15

I’ve had another fantastic weekend. Ups and downs—as ever—but largely a nice time. I’m always pleased when that happens, because it puts me in a good mood for the rest of the week and makes writing easier. Which is good . . . I have a lot to get done. 😉

Actions Last Week

~Edit complete deep edits on ‘Episode Three’checking off feedback
Nope. I got stuck when the depth of ‘do over’ required on a couple of the middle sections. I’ll need another week to get that polished off.

~Do the audio read of ‘Walking The Razor’s Edge’ at least a quarter the book
Sorted. That’s 21,000 words read in the Word Lady’s beautiful monotone drone. It’s strange, but it really does help to hear it read that way. Obviously it would be better if I read it complete with inflection and tone, but I’m not convinced I’d read what was on the page, rather than what I thought was there. This way, I know it’s a direct reading of the text without my brain filling in gaps or glossing over errors.

~Finalise new concept for ‘Episode Three’ cover design
Yeeeesssssss . . . not sure how I’m going to execute it though. The idea may be beyond my current skill set. Hmm. We’ll see. I’ll give myself another week to play about with the idea.

Activities For This Weekblank calendar from OpenClipArt

  • Complete another 20,000 words of ‘Walking The Razor’s Edge’ via audio read.
  • Play with new concepts for ‘Episode Three’ cover design
  • Finish deep edits on ‘Episode Three’


Half term really did a number on me. I underestimated just how much I really do get done in those 2-3 hours and the time I thought I’d have on Tuesday and Friday I didn’t get in full. Never mind . . . back to normal now and it’s time to catch up. I’m looking forward to it.

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.
