Hi everybody, I’m Kate!

I’m nineteen and a sophomore in college. I love to write (obviously) but I'm pretty sure I spend more time thinking about writing than I actually spend writing. I'm five feet and ten inches tall, so the first thing I do after developing a celebrity crush is Google his height. I love overcast skies and cats and sweaters and baking cookies, because I'm actually an elderly woman trapped in a teenager's body. I'm addicted to Candy Crush (level 688 and counting). I can't sing to save my life. I hate speaking in front of crowds. I think French accents are funny, especially when paired with false mustaches and tiny berets. And I'm sort of hoping that someday, writing will be more than just a pastime for me.

I swear I love you guys but please respect it when I say that...

I love how you pour your heart out into a message that asks your readers not to ask you to update and right after messages appear telling you to update. Am I the only one who finds this humorous? Maybe because it's not happening to me....

Anywho, best of luck to you and I hope the whole publishing fiasco is going well. See you later (probably when your book is on the best sellers shelf at Barnes & Noble) bye xx
Reading your book has ruined my life because it's all I ever think about because you left it in such a good yet bad place and it makes me emotional you know?:/
General update:

Hi friends. Long time no talk. I've been getting a TON of messages recently about my inactivity on Wattpad, and I'd like to really quick answer all of them at once.

Q: Are you alive?
A: Only after I've had my morning coffee.

Q: Will you be updating Jericho?
A: Probably not. I've grown really attached to it, and I'd rather leave my options for publishing open. Which means I can't post it all online. I'm sorry. I'm honored you guys like it so much. But I'm thinking about the future.

Q: When will you start Saving Dolphins?
A: After I finish Float.

Q: When will you be updating Float? Are you even writing it anymore?
A: I haven't completely given up on Float, but the fact of the matter is that I'm in college (read: I have essays due like every week) and I'm very quickly evolving as a writer. I'm not the same person I was when I started Float, so a LOT of the plot and choices annoy me to no end. Everyone regrets their middle school self, right? Anyway. I do intend to finish it, just because I do feel like you guys (my lovely readers) deserve that. 

But I have NO IDEA when updates will come. Please stop asking me to update, or when I'll update. Asking me does literally nothing except make me want to spend more time away from Wattpad (I have enough demands on me from my professors, the last thing I need is a twelve year old all up in my inbox begging me to update "just for [her]").

So, in summary. I'm sorry I can't be more present on Wattpad. I'm sorry I haven't updated Float in months. If you're lost for material to read on here, please check my reading lists (three of the four are only completed stories). If you want minor updates on my writing career (lol can I call it that), you can like my page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/katemarchantonwattpad .

I love you guys. Thank you for being patient. Sorry I'm a turd.

xoxo Kate
