Plague House and Lack of Motivation


Ach I am not feeling well, the whole family is ill, my mind isn’t in the best place. Just some thoughts of how I currently feel. Despite what might come across from this video, it isn’t that I want constant validation, it isn’t even that I crave feedback. I have very low self esteem, and sometimes, it just gets to me. No feedback tells me that my work is crap, and that is my shortcoming, this is just me working through it. Tomorrow is a whole new day and I will probably come back on with a vlog that is the polar opposite of this!


About oneofthedragons

Samantha 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. Sam: Frankie:
