Thank You

I love to write. I always have and I always will. Writing is something that always makes me happy. Whenever I am inspired, I am lucky enough to be able to sit down and write out a story that just randomly pops into my head. And I am lucky enough to have all of you to write for. Thank you for everything - for the reviews, for the encouragement and kind words, for the checking up on me when I don't post anything for a few days. Thank you for letting me write for you. I will never stop writing. Even if I never get published, if I still have all of you reading my stories online, I will be happy. I just wanted to let you know that I love writing and I love writing for you. Never did I think when I posted Wonderwall a couple of years ago would I develop a devoted following like I have. There are truly great writers out there and I know I will never be one of them but when I post a story and I have you review it for me and let me know what you think, none of you can possibly understand that size of the smile on my face.

At the moment, my brain is going in a thousand different directions with stories and I am scared about burning myself out. I might have to slow down but I am just so excited for everything in the works that I need to write and post. Below is a picture I found that truly inspired me to write another installment for Devon and Grace in continuation of Seven Minutes in Heaven and Strange Conditions. I hope to finish that either tonight or tomorrow and post it on I will let you know when. I am also working on the next chapter of The Nicest Thing and I have several other one-shots in the making.

I know this post may seem pointless but... I just wanted to say thank you. I mean it. If I never get published, I know that I will still always be a popular on-line author and honestly, that is more than good enough for me. I hope everyone had a fantastic Manic Monday and I will talk to you again soon when the short story of Devon and Grace is complete.

Devon and Grace

Hey Kate,

No, thank you. You will get publish one day. I believe it in my heart because you LOVE TO WRITE and that's the key to any success. Some day you will get that recognition you so deserve. Yea, there are a lot of great writers out there and you are one of them. And if they don't believe you send them some of your reviews:) All you need is some confidence because you got the passion and dedication and nothing stop people who have that drive in them, nothing. You are certainly marketable as well because I can't stop thinking about half of your characters, seriously. I wonder if they got married, are they happy, how are they doing, ect. It's pretty obsessive scary.

I'm sad to inform you that I do not know any publisher or anybody who knows somebody. But if I do I will certainly contact you immediately. I work at the hospital and there is a lot of networking going on so I hope to meet someone who can help you out. Maybe one of the surgeons can hook me up, haha.

I love that picture of the couple on the swing. I've always wanted to be kiss on a swing, haha. I can't wait to read about Grace and Devon or any couple, basically. Thank you so very much. Good luck.

We should be the ones thanking you, Kate! You write so amazingly well, its so rare to find someone that writes like you... someone who lets us believe that fairytales can come true. You're awesome and Im glad you wrote this post, Im glad you'll never stop writing. Though I highly doubt you wont get published (anyone who is stupid enough to turn down TPT or ANY of your stories is really missing out!!) I will always love and appreciate you writing for us, even when you have a family and a job and a life for that matter.

Im glad I get to read another Devon & Grace story! Their my favorite "one shot" couple of yours - they just make me so happy. Im eagerly awaiting for the next installment and good luck with finding a publisher. Im sorry to say I dont know anybody in that business, and even if I did... I live in Montreal in Canada which is pretty far from Chicago but if I ever hear of anybody I will definitely let you know.

Again, you're truly an inspiration to all aspiring writers out there.

Heya Kate!

I am so excited for you and the chance you might get published. It is a BIG dream and I know that you have the skill to one day see it happen. THANK-YOU for sharing your stories with us.

There are some of your stories that I enjoy more then others but all are good in their own right and show a different facet of your skill and talent. I appreciate how much time you spend writing and posting online and I think that it is paying off as you continue to improve with each story.

Take care and thanks again!! Can't wait for the next update!
