Kristin is a #1 New York Times and #1 USA Today bestselling author who was born on an Air Force base in Japan and grew up in Oklahoma where she explored everything from tattoo modeling to broadcast journalism. After battling addiction, Kristin made her way to the Pacific Northwest and landed in Portland. She rediscovered her passion for storytelling in the stacks at dusty bookstores and in rickety chairs in old coffeehouses. For as long as she can remember, Kristin’s been telling stories. Thankfully, she’s been writing them down since 2005.

That sounds funny and simple, but I understand that it can be really intimidating. The way I started my first novel was to write an outline for each chapter. This can be as detailed as you want it to be. It's yours. Don't be worried about how you think it's supposed to be formatted, because that doesn't matter. Mine wasn't too detailed, but it did alleviate my stress. It made it so that I wasn't all freaked out about figuring out what needed to happen next. Pull out that pen or start clicking that keyboard and do you!(less)

I get what writer's block feels like, but that's all it is - a feeling. It's like anxiety or happiness. The way you talk to yourself while you're in it makes all the difference. If I sat there and told myself how horrible I am, I would never be able to finish my book. I believe that the most important part of overcoming writer's block is to exchange the negative self talk for positive affirmations. What also may help is to choose a different chapter or scene to write. Sometimes it's worth skipping ahead and allowing a little time to reset.(less)

Quotes by Kristin Cast  (?)

“Hey, which one of them is supposed to be your boyfriend?” Stark
asked me. Even in the terrible shape he was in, he caught my glance
with his. His voice was scratchy, and he sounded scarily weak, but
his eyes sparkled with humor.

I am!” Heath and Erik said together.”
Kristin Cast, Tempted

“If I died, would it get me out of my geometry test tomorrow? One could only hope.”
Kristin Cast, Marked

“When I did finally speak, I surprised myself by saying exactly what was on my mind.
“You must hate me.”
She stared a long time at me.
I did,” she said slowly, “But it’s mostly myself I hate.”
Don’t,” I said.
And why the hell shouldn’t I hate myself? Everybody else hates me.”
Kristin Cast, Untamed
