Hi everyone,
I'm Azurite, sometimes known as Azurite Moon, sometimes the-sweet. I've been writing since I could get my hands on a typewriter, keyboard, or legal pad-- whether it was original fiction about haunted bowling alleys and mysterious kingdoms with princesses in towers determined to free themselves to fanfiction for Sailor Moon, Yu-Gi-Oh! or any number of other fandoms, including television shows (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville), movies (Pirates of the Caribbean), video games (Star Ocean, Final Fantasy X) or books (Harry Potter).

Whether or not you support me through this Patreon, I will continue writing. It is what I love to do, and for those things that I am able to share online with a community of fellow fans, I will, without reservation or exception.

So why do I have this Patreon? To put it simply, so I have the time to actually do what I love. I'm a full-time grad student pursuing my Master's Degree in Library and Information Science, but I also have 16 hours a week I devote to a part-time job doing publicity for an independent bookstore, and a freelance job for five hours a week doing social media marketing, research, writing, and blog posting. This doesn't leave me a whole lot of time to pursue my passion of writing in, for, and about fandom in the form of fanfiction, blog posts (meta), or much of anything else!

The more I write, the better I get at it. Not to mention, the more I write, the more inspired I'll be to keep writing, and not get stymied by my inner editor, who screams that my attempt at the latest chapter of Some Story will be Absolutely No Good because no amount of editing will save it from being trite, overdone, purple prose, etc.

Why monthly? I feel this is the fairest option, taking into account Real Life with things like medical emergencies, holidays, or other extenuating circumstances. No one can realistically churn out the same amount of words every week or every month. I can promise to write a chapter, a series of blog posts, or a writing lesson.

Realistic rewards are just as important to me as realistic goals. Everyone who donates will have a say on what they think I should be working on next. Seriously, nothing is more motivating than people telling me that I'm off to a good start and I should keep going! Folks who graciously donate beyond a certain level will have advance access to my stories, as hosted on my website. Beyond that, I will be sharing my original writing in the form of blog posts, the topic of which can be about what YOU choose: fandom in general, particular universes (one series I'm starting is the impact of Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden on the timeline and world of the original Fushigi Yuugi manga), writing, editing, and marketing.

Do you want to talk one-on-one via Google Chat, Skype, or FaceTime? We can do that! Want me to design a custom wallpaper, banner, button, or avatar for your use online? I can do that, too!

Thank you for taking the time to check out my Patreon page!
