Letters, Personal, poetry

Medicated and Mighty

I'm spending the day editing my book and making the final touches on some of the poems, order, and other small details!
I'm honestly amazed with myself for how quickly this is coming together now that I actually have the energy to work on it.
(Thank you Wellbutrin for making me feel alive again.)
Here's another sneak peek at one of the poems that will be in the book; one that I feel suits how I've been feeling this week. Let me know your thoughts!

Store bought neurotransmitters

Are just as valid as homemade

Not being able to make your own

Does not make you weak

And taking the steps to receive help

Doesn't make you broken

It makes you strong as hell

Crooked Letters – Draft One

The first draft of Crooked Letters to Crooked Lovers officially exists in the physical world!

I fell into a bit of a creative slump for a few months while my mental health fluctuated and my medications were rearranged.
But now I’m feeling better than I ever have. I have more motivation, more energy, and more creative pumping through my veins.

Draft one is ready to be edited, rewritten, and expanded.

This is an exciting step forward for me on my journey to publishing this novel!

Love and Light

Patreon Updates

Hey there lovelies!

I’ve been working super hard to revamp my Patreon goals and rewards pages so now when you check out my Patreon everything is up to date! If you don’t already know, Patreon is a wonderful website dedicated to creators! Here, you can pledge your support (and gain my undying love and gratitude) to my art and creative passions!

Patreon has helped me to live off of my art since working a full-time job while going to school is a bit unrealistic for my mental health. As some of you may know, I do suffer from PTSD and bipolar disorder. This makes it rather difficult to work in a typical work-place environment (although I am putting in multiple applications a day; I’m just not receiving any calls back yet). But Patreon has helped me in so many ways; not only financially. It’s helped me to realize that there are lovely people out there (yes I’m talking directly to YOU) who care about my creative passions and are willing to support them! That alone is such a gift.

So, without further ado, let me tell you what becoming a patron means for you!

$1 per month: A personalized shout-out on my blog and my twitter feed, access to all of my other social media accounts, and access to the patron-only feed where I run polls and post other goodies for you lovelies. And, of course, my undying love and gratitude.

$2 per month: Previous tier access and my love and gratitude multiplied by two (that’s a whole lotta love) (kudos if you got my Led Zeppelin reference becasue I think I’m funny).

$5 per month: Previous tier access, discounts on my editing services and on my Etsy shop, and access to my personal vault where I have never before seen writings and half thoughts.

$10 per month: Previous tier access and a unique commission! This means you’ll get a unique story, poem, or fan fiction written just for you. This can be any sort of subject matter or have your own original characters! the sky’s the limit!

$15 per month: Previous tier access and a unique, wood-burned crystal box with crystals picked intuitively just for you!

$20 per month: Previous tier access, access to the first drafts of my letter for my book, and a custom order off my Etsy shop!

$50 per month: Previous tier access and a copy of the first published edition of my novel!!!

All reward tiers gain access to the previous tier meaning if you pledge $20 per month you receive a personalized shout out, access to my writing vault, discounts on my editing services and my Etsy shop, a unique commissioned story, a wood-burned crystal box, AND a custom order from my Etsy shop! That’s a whole lot of goodies and, of course, as always, my undying love and gratitude!

So, if you’d like, you can check out my Patreon page and start receiving all these goodies today!

Love and light,
