Why Would Anyone Purposely Do This??



Oh…because they are writers, that’s why! Only a writer has a line of cheerleaders saying “Destroy him! Ruin her life! Take everything that means anything to her and thrash it to pieces!”


I know this sounds brutal, but human beings are twisted. We get excited by conflict and we love it in our entertainment. Stephen King said “Ask yourself ‘what is the worst thing that can possibly happen?’ and then do it.”

This fabulous entry on the great WD tells us how to do this. Read on…

About Katie Thayne, Author

Katie Thayne (that's me, kind of, seeing as how Katie Thayne is a pen name) is an up and coming author (or so I'd like to think). I have just released my first book, Ms. Impractical Pants, and am currently working on its sequel. I don't have a name for that one yet, so let's just call it Sequel for now. If I'm not working on Sequel, I'm scratching down ideas for the other half dozen or so book ideas swirling around in my brain. Okay, that's a lie, I don't write them down as much as I should, but I still think them, so that should count for something, right? I live in beautiful Moab, Utah and when I'm not writing- on second thought, I won't go there. Let's pretend I sit in a quite office hunched over a keyboard and do nothing but write. The most important thing to know about me, is just because I write doesn't mean I can punctuate. That's why I have an editor- but not for this blogging stuff. Editors ain't cheap and I'm not J.K. Rowling...yet. But I hope that won't keep you from reading my blog.
