@alejandra925 asked: Hi Kat! Congrats on the 2.5k followers! I have a RebelCaptain prompt/story request. I’d love a surprise marriage proposal or scavenger hunt proposal story for our beloved Jyn and Cassian.
Now, as it turns out, I am not a romantic person. Like, at all. I literally have spent so much time staring at a blank Word document with this prompt in mind, thinking of literally nothing to write. So, in short, this prompt is way late and I am so, so sorry about that. Hopefully you’ll enjoy what I managed to come up with! (Also, as an apology, it’s also a full 1,000 words!)
With this prompt, I am concluding the Thanks From Kat series!! Thank you to all of my followers and especially to those who sent me amazing prompts. You all are lovely and I’ve loved getting to know some of you through this :)

I love your writing, it's very evocative and it's good - actually good, not like a lot of the writing I see on here. Why don't you publish a book - self-publish perhaps, I don't know where you are in your career?
I appreciate that, but I don’t want a book published just now, my work isn’t ready. I haven’t compiled or sent off any manuscripts either.
Other people have also advised me to self-publish, for two reasons: a) It’s a good way of compiling your work & sharing it, and b) supposedly it shows publishers that you’re enthusiastic & engaged. For the first, it makes sense, but I share my work anyway through the magazines that publish me, & this satisfies me for the time being. For the latter… I don’t think there should be a question about whether I would be willing to promote my work - I don’t see why it would rely on a self-publishing history; if I’m sending out my work to magazines I’m clearly proactive. Additionally, I want people to read my work but I doubt my work can garner the kind of attention (/infamy) that, for example, milk and honey has, so it’s unlikely that my work would be viewed through the lens of profit anyway.
I understand that the world of publishing is both harsh and exclusionary, but I don’t require the validation from it. These processes are organic and I am in no hurry. My words are important to me & I am willing to take my time where it matters.
Thanks you guys for getting me to 200+ followers. I never thought i’d get soo many so quick… especially after that shit start. I’m still working on my 100+ thing, it’s taking a while to prepare. Anyway, This is a shout out post to those i love/feel like loving/should be loved by you guys!
