Mary Kit Caelsto is creating writing and advocacy
5
patrons
Thank you for visiting my page. You'll find a little bit of everything here, but here's my focus:
  • I'm an author of women's lit (equestrian focused) and rural fantasy. I've got a couple of stories planned to share first with my Patreons, including bringing my love of music into my women's lit. I also write nonfiction and am working on Chronically Disposable: A mother/daughter memoir of life and death in a rural healthcare system
  • I share mental health/chronic illness awareness and advocacy. I'm a chronic pain/fibromyalgia patient who has been medically abandoned due to the "war on opioids" who has finally found a doctor who may treat her fibromyalgia. In addition I have major depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and cPTSD. 
  • I'm a muse mentor! How do you stay writing and creative when life happens? I talk about my journey as a caretaker and the important role self-advocacy (I don't like self-care as a term) and healing plays in your creativity.
Expect 2-4 posts from me a week
Mondays: Writing Advice (posts to my blog 2 weeks later except for special series
Thursday: General Updates
Once a week: Mental Health/Chronic Illness & Muse Happens (Muse Mentoring)

By supporting me you'll help support me while I write, create, and most importantly HEAL. Your patronage will provide direct funds to feed the horses, the cats, and help my family recover from financial hardship. Recently I lost my mother. (October 2018). I'd been getting paid to take care of her, as she'd been wheelchair bound for over a year. (In addition to working a full-time job, which is awesome and let me work from home during this time.) With her passing, I lost a substantial part of my income. (40% of my W-2 income I figured out after doing taxes) While I can cover the bare basics and food for all of us, there's a sizeable hole that I'd love to fill with my writing and virtual/technical assistant work. That's where you come in.

I have fibromyalgia, My full-time job doesn't pay a lot, but I work for a small company that does great things and the people who run it are very cool with my needing to work from home for part of the week and accommodate my health as much as possible. The good news is that writing and my technical work is my zen. I love doing it, and it also helps keep me focused on something other than the pain.

If you’ve read this far—thank you. I hope you’ll decide to support me.
