Aspiring Artists

You are not an aspiring artist

Writer

Painter

Musician

Or photographer

You are already these things

Every time you let your passion

Soften your heart

And shed light on the darkest corners of your mind

You are creating

You are bringing something new

Something personal

Something that never existed before you

Into this world and leaving a bit of yourself for other eyes to see

you are already the creator

you aspired so long to be

⁃ tell your story

creative writing, Personal, poetry

Fall in Love with Your Best Friend

Fall in love with your best friend

Read her favorite books

Highlighting the passages

that remind you of her

Listen to her favorite songs

and hum the melodies

on your way to work

Fall in love with her past

Every dark corner and twisted story

Love her deeply

gently

And so completely

That she never feels alone again

⁃ be your own best friend

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,
m.m.t.
