West Coast

Below, I have posted the song "West Coast" by Coconut Records. It is kind of the theme song to chapter thirty for The Prettiest Thing and I have been writing with this song playing the background for almost a week now. Pay no attention to the video. It was the only good one on YouTube I could find of the song. I really hope this chapter will be done by this weekend. Thank you to everyone who reads my stories and this blog. You guys are beyond wonderful.

Squeeee! I love this song - it's one of my most listened to songs on my mp3 player :)

I was going to leave a comment on your previous post, but I may aswell just bundle it all into this one lol.

You are a brilliant writer. I know it, and all the other people who read your stories, leave reviews and check your blog religiously know it.

Keep smiling :)

I LOVE this song! I've been listening to this band for a while now, and the song 'West Coast' is so great. I can't wait to find out what the chapter is about now! Is someone leaving for the west coast? haha! I am in love with your work, and forget about all of those jealous want-to-be critics. You are brilliant!
I can go on and on about how wonderful your stories are, but there's only so many words I can fit into a review without it being obnoxiously long! But before I go, I have a quick question. Where did the story 'In A Red Dress and Alone' go? I recently read 'Beyond the Grey Sky', and I looked for the continuation, but there isn't one anymore. Maybe you mentioned why in a previous post, so sorry if I'm asking again!
ALSO, I am currently in love with Wonderwall. My favorite character out of all of your stories would have to be Brady,a nd my favorite couple is Lucy and Will.
So anyways, I LOVE YOUR WRITING!! And I hope that they get published soon! I would buy five copies and give them to friends and family. Thank you for keeping me happy while reading them!

PS. Also, I fell in love with the band 'Scouting For Girls'. After you posted the song, 'She's so lovely', I went and searched for them. Even though they are in England and I'm in the USA, they're amazing!

Hey Kate,

"For a second there I thought you disappeared. It rains a lot this time of year. And we both go together if one falls down. I talk out loud like you're still around." I love that line from the song. Another band I'm hearing about for the first time which means I'll have to check them out.

We believe in you so believe in yourself. Don't let a hate email discourage you because there will always be people who will bite the hand that feeds them. You can't please everyone and that is a proven fact. Reviews will fluctuate so you can't base it on how much we love the chapter or not. If you need encouragement your fans will be there for you. You're trying something different in the way you're telling this story and if people don't like it then they don't have to read it but of course that concept is too hard to comprehend for them. I don't understand how someone can form a profound opinion on something that is not even finish yet. Next time someone send you a hate email post it on here so we can rip this shithead apart. If this person have the time to write something as hateful than why not let it be known. See how connected your fans are to you that they knew immediately that something wasn't right when you haven't posted anything at all. We love you chickadee so keep on writing and I know haters will keep hating but that's a part of being so awesome.

Hello Kate,
Sorry I haven't replied to any of your blog posts in the last few days - my friends and I took a little road trip and I wasn't able to access the internet, so with that being said...

I absolutely love this song, I couldn't watch the video though... I was afraid it was going to ruin the song for me lol.

Secondly... in regards to your "MIA" post, PLEASE DONT LET THESE IDIOTS BRING YOU DOWN. Honestly Kate, you're the best author I've ever come across in my whole life (and I really mean this) I enjoy reading every single one of your stories. No matter what the plot, or who the characters are, you make the story interesting and FUN to read. But also, above all that, you make your stories BELIEVABLE, which is a really hard thing to do, I envy that you can make people step out of the real world for a few moments every time they read a new chapter of one of your stories.

You're an amazing writer and I would hate to see you stop writing because of some stupid idiot that put you down. You are truly talented and have a wonderful gift, but...

Like other people were saying in the other post, if you truly do not LOVE writing... than don't, because you should be writing for YOU and no one else. If the fans don't like it... well then that's honestly there problem, not yours. You should always write for you and never change anything about your story - it's perfect the way it is.

Anyways, to wrap up this long post, I think you're magnificent at writing and I do hope that you continue but if not, I, and the rest of your fans, will still be here to support you in every decision you make.
