RS: I Haz Planz 07/03/16 & February 2016 Round Up

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s March!

. . . that seemed to come out of nowhere! Sure, I’m aware of days passing and all that, but yikes, did February go fast. And not just because it’s short a couple of days.

Ho hum. Time to look at how I’ve been getting on.

Actions Over The Last Fortnight

~Complete deep edits on ‘Shh, The Kids Are Sleeping’
Done. At last! Dunno why that took me so long, but it’s done and I’m so thrilled with the story. A sweet little piece about a married couple, completed with two young kiddie winkles. But I’m not getting sentimental . . . no, not me . . . no way, no how. o.O

~Complete first draft of ‘Not Another Blind Date’ (after figuring out what’s bothering me about the words I have so far)
Another sweet story complete in first draft. The words I had so far were bothering me because they were sweet and sensual, rather than hard and rough. Sure, these Smexxy Snippets are supposed to be quick and rough, but I think a minor break for the emotions linked to extreme insta-lust is something nice to explore. So that’s what happened in this offering. I’ll get onto editing it later.

February Round Up

~Ensure the release of my third Smexxy Snippet (‘The Back Seat of My Sister’s Car’) releases as planned on February 22 2016 on both Amazon and Smashwords
All done. Came out without a hitch and it’s all looking rosy on that score.

~Complete and list the fourth Smexxy Snippet: ‘Shh, The Kids Are Sleeping!’
Woohoo, wrapped up this afternoon. Everything is in place and there are a few more checks that Smashwords needs to make before they’re happy.

~Complete the draft of ‘Not Another Blind Date’
Yes, as above, this is now done.

~Draft ‘It’s Fun To Share’
I think I’m 900 words in, or something like that. I started last week when I realised I was done with the other stuff, but never quite got to the end. Ho hum. I’ll do that this month too.

Change That Shit Up

Here is the full list again, just so I can take a look at what needs to be done, refreshing myself on the details, as it were. Completed tasks struck out, changes in red and new items in green.

Targets For March 2016

I seem to recall deciding to shift my release schedule to every other month, rather than monthly, meaning I can sit back and chill just a tiny bit. Still, it would be nice to get the first drafts of all my snippets out the way, especially since, for some reason, I’ve also started making notes of ‘Slippers & Chains: Three’ even though that piece didn’t rank anywhere in my notes for last month. I’ve completed the notes too, and I’m ready to start deep edits pretty much any time now.

*sigh* Funny how I distract myself from my list in favour of anything else going!


  1. Ensure the release of my fourth Smexxy Snippet (‘Shh, The Kids Are Sleeping!’) releases as planned on March 22 2016 on both Amazon and Smashwords
  2. Draft the remaining three Smexxy Snippets
    1. ‘It’s Fun To Share’
    2. ‘So, I Bought A New Toy’
    3. ‘Because Magic Is Sexy’
      1. Work on this title because, at present, it sucks arse!

Activities For This Fortnight

  1. Finish drafting ‘It’s Fun To Share’
  2. Draft half of ‘So I Bought A New Toy’

Thoughts . . .

Sorted. That’s more than enough to keep me busy this fortnight. Let’s see how we do: half term is over, I have my working afternoons back, the household has calmed down for DSB and everything is smooth and shiny. Let’s go.

Raven's Signature In Black

About Raven ShadowHawk

I take great pleasure in writing erotica and am merely one side of the proverbial coin. My other half, 'Ileandra Young' writes fantasy and the occasional comedy piece. My six-part series 'Meeting Each Other' is available in full, through Amazon and Smashwords while my debut novella 'Sugar Dust' is now re-released (!) available through Amazon via Little Vamp Press.

  1. I think you’ve been very very busy.
    it sounds like you are on a mission to get a lot done, but don’t forget to give yourself a bit of down time too.


    • Oooh, don’t worry about that. The new series of Daredevil will be starting on Netflix soon and that, along with Mortal Instruments and daily walks through the park give me plenty of ‘me’ time to enjoy. ^_^
