The Write Life

Seducing hearts, one story at a time, Author - Crystal R. Martin

Darlings,


            I can share now. I was able to participate in the UsaMamo Spring Fic Exchange 2K20 over on Tumblr. The lovely UglyGreenJacket hosts it. I’m going to share the link here. The premise is everybody gets a secret someone they are writing for. It’s anonymous, and that makes it cool. I should add that artists are included, and I had Sailor Moon art drawn specifically for me. How could you not love that? I wrote an episode based on my artists likes. I hope she loves it! Here is the link to the story I wrote.
  




 I learned things about myself, and my writing by writing to a deadline. It was a great experience. I was terrified, yet elated.
            I was also concerned that I wouldn’t finish on time, due to multiple life complications. First, I went on that eight-day trip. I wrote a tiny bit in Chicago, but the rest of the week was a loss. Second the first and second week we went into shelter in place and lockdown, I struggled to write. I think I wrote nothing for two weeks. I was going kind of crazy and avoiding writing. That hurt the most, because I knew I was avoiding it, but fear and anxiety locked me up.
            My reason will sound lame, I know. I was so used to writing at Starbucks, and then they closed. The fear of this whole life changing event we are all locked into really messed with my head. I knew it wasn’t just that Starbucks had closed, it was fear of the unknown. Finally, I sat my butt down, and we had a serious come-to-Jesus type of meeting.
            Sounds funny I know, I giggle even as I share that, but it’s true. I either had to own that I can follow through, or I let it fall by the wayside as a learning experience. It almost fell by the wayside, truthfully, but what stopped that was the idea, that if I couldn’t follow through on fanfiction, how could I follow through with original fiction. Something clicked in me, and I found my way through the end of the story with help from the Universe.


Hi Darlings,
               
               I wanted to take a moment or two and talk about last week’s full moon energy. Since last Saturday, 04-04-2020, the gateway, the energy has been crazy. Has anyone else noticed? We went straight from that to the full moon on Tuesday. It just seemed to amp everything up. I’ve been drinking water by the gallon or so it seems.
                I am back writing fanfiction, and here shortly I will have something ever so lovely to share. I hope if you like fanfiction, you will give it a read. I’ve been hard at work during this crazy time. It’s hard because I fluctuate between writing like a madman, and then crashing back into reality. I do hope the intended person loves their work. I can’t say anything yet, but I’ll explain in a day or two.
   This week was filled with weird energy and vivid dreaming. I had enough to last a lifetime. They were often intense, odd, and vivid. They were not thankfully precognitive dreams, just bizarre. In my latest video I also share a woo-woo story with you. I had an unexplainable bit of fortune this week as well. I’ll share the link below. Please if you are interested in such things give it a view, because it is kind of cool. Well I will wrap up here, and leave you back where I found you. 

Much Love, Me
