Guest Vlog: Katie

Next in our series of The Dead Pete Society: Katie!!!
As for an update from me… still keeping up with my daily goal. More focused today than yesterday (HA! Don’t get me started on that nonsense! I am crazy and I know it!). Pulled an all nighter and wrote a little while I had the oil in my car changed as well. Currently have 2405 for the day (62K for NaNo) and projecting something like 4-6K by the end of the night.
I’m experiencing Plot Twists Galore. It seems that every day something surprising happens in my story. I thought one of my characters was a nice guy but it turns out he’s kind of a jerk. Found out one of my characters is sweeter than he/she seems, and one of my operatives has a berserker mode of sorts.
My story is out of order… I went back and beefed up some chapters and I’m pretty sure that I wrote in some scenes with characters that hadn’t been introduced yet. I’ll fix that later, though. I’m not concerned.
Things have gotten very fun and exciting.
Also, as of yesterday, my story crossed over 120K words total. That makes this the longest story I’ve ever written, and it’s still not quite half done yet!
No video from me today. Katie’s was awesome enough, right?
Also, in case you didn’t know, the song she was singing is from the game Portal and is entitled “Still Alive.”
About oneofthedragonsSamantha K. Balk and F. R. Donaldson met on An Archive of Our Own, one of the many fanfiction sites online, when Sam asked Frankie to illustrate the fanfiction that would one day lead to Sam's first novel. They've been friends ever since! This blog was created as a way to share the oftentimes difficult journey any new author experiences on the uncomfortable quest of an introvert for attention to his or her most personal work. It is meant to remind you that authors don't just appear fully fledged like a George R. R. Martin, that all of us start out unsure and feeling inadequate. Feel free to ask us anything.
