I keep calling this idea the ‘hard reboot’, and it’s something I’ve really tried to avoid because it’s just so drastic, but here we go.
A long time ago, I stopped writing and talked about burnout. I’m horrified to discover, reading back to when I first started talking about it, that I was talking about it as far back as 2011. I’ve blogged about it A LOT.
And while it’s true I’ve written for Nanowrimo since then, I’m not writing daily, and I think that’s bad – really bad – for me. I think it’s messing up my whole outlook on everything.
I now work part time, in a marketing job, so I’ve got that solid commitment to shape my work and world around but have you ever looked at a pile of work that you have and get paralysed. That’s me right now.
The really horrible thing is there are lots and lots of books I’d love to write. I’m passionate and engaged about all of them.
So, I’m going to list them in the sidebar, along with their status. I might even manage different colours for different statuses.
In with that is a slight change to my blogs. I’m still thinking about how to deal with that. But first, I want to get on with my books.
For that reason, there’s now a sidebar that’ll track them. I’m seeing if I can’t link up stuff too, but for now, it’ll just be names and numbers 😉
From there, I’m going to concentrate on writing and my job with Mantic Games (we’re 4 days to go till the end of our Kickstarter!)
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.
