First up, the most important thing I’m doing is writing. I’m looking for a job out of the house, but wile doing that, I’m trying to write and publish too. It’s so difficult to balance right now, but I have hopes that I’ll manage it 🙂
As shared in ‘State of the Writing’ over the month, I’ve completed 54,492 words. Of that, my writing was really in fits and starts, and I’m still editing two books to release. My 750words has been mostly all therapy, with some few bright spots of post apocalyptic story planning. I think it’s fairly telling though that my 750words was as much as my guest blogging and my writing, and my blogging for my own blogs wasn’t exactly huge.
Not much to say here really other than week 2 for me was a mostly pillow-fort week. I’ve had a lot of rough health things to deal with, and it was a bit of a blow to find out that my latest book isn’t edited right. It’s something most indies face at some point, but Glass Block is now with a final proofreader (I hope).

D Kai Wilson- Viola is a prolific and often intensely fun writer. Her favorite genres are Sci-Fi, where her Darkness series is set, Fantasy, where she writes up actual play from RPGs she never got to run, urban fantasy, mostly inspired by her bad idea bear (aka her partner, Tempus, and mental health advocacy, as she’s got a raft of diagnoses, none of them particularly pleasant, but none that tend to hold her down for long either
When not writing, and still *thinking* about writing often enough to get caught out, Kai can be found training with her beloved at the Ludosport Academy they belong to, hanging out with family and friends gaming, or enjoying exploring parts of the world they’ve got access to at the time.
A nature and animal lover, Kai is a writer because she has to, because she loves it, and because it’s fun. She is the mother of two cats, two adults and lives in the Cotswolds, UK, with her beloved.
