I know you don’t see me as often as you’re used to. Sometimes I miss working part time. Finding the time to write or to make a video about writing is actually sort of like hunting a unicorn. Where has the summer even gone?
So basically, I’m ready to write… finding the time is the current challenge. I’m used to being a night owl. 😦
Also, that thing about my dogs rolling in dead skunk? Well. It wasn’t an overwhelming smell, but they did require a bath. There goes my Sunday.
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.
