HEY, HI, HELLO THERE!
Hello friends, and welcome to the official Patreon page of Elayna Musings, the digital home of yours truly. My name (as yah probably guessed) is Elayna, and I’m a passionate Hufflepuff who fiercely believes in the power of stories and the magic of fandom.

Elayna Musings is both a bloga YouTube channel, and more recently, it has become my brand for the poetry, art, films, fiction, blogs, podcasts, photography, and all other manner of creative tomfoolery that I get up to these days. While I dabble in many mediums, the place where I feel most at home is in the written word, and it's been my dream since the dawn of ever to be a professional writer. Thanks to Patreon, we gonna make that ish happen.

MY ROAD SO FAR
In 2013, I graduated with a degree in Film & Media Arts, and a focus in LGBTQ+ Studies. Basically, I spent college having a heckin blast making lots of video projects with my production group, Mirrorwall Films. In 2015, I became the co-founding producer of MuggleNet.com’s Fantastic Beasts podcast, SpeakBeasty. In 2017, I cried a lot because my first short story (a sci-fi called CONTINUUM) was published in Issue 02 of the literary magazine Wizards in Space.

Now, I’ve got my first collection of poetry, Unraveling Light, due to be released this summer, thanks to an overwhelmingly awesome Kickstarter that I ran during National Poetry Month. The book will be available for pre-order soon! And yes, I will probably cry more when that happens. (I’m a happy crier, get used to it folks.)

I’ve also spent the last three years actively working on a project that’s been in my brain since I was 13, a YA space fantasy series, the first of which is titled They Are the Last. These three projects just graze the surface of all the creative and writerly things I do, which is why we’re all gathered here on this lovely orange website.

THE ROAD AHEAD
Through Patreon, I’m hoping to turn the Steven Spielberg quote inked into my skin—I dream for a living—into an actual reality, instead of just an awesome wrist tattoo.

Nothing in this or any universe makes me as happy as getting to share my stories, and inspire others to tell theirs too. Through this page, I hope that together, we can build a community of magical humans who love celebrating life, love, and creativity. So whether you become a Spark, a Candle, a Bonfire, or a Firework, know that you are luminous, and that you’re making the world just a little bit brighter by believing in the magic of storytelling.
