Thank you so much Kat!
You have inspired me, given me the confidence not to second guess my writer self. To study story craft, to write stories that I want to write, fearlessly make the mistakes I have to make, learn, improve, carry my stories with me as I journey into the infinitely bright future of storytelling!
