Welcome to Just Ryn!
When you see magic in me, my work will have already begun.-Ryn Jade
I am Ryn Jade, lead faerie and creative mastermind behind Steampunk Faerie Dust, what began as a small Etsy store now becoming a street name on the sidewalks of Noda in Charlotte, NC. I have a curiosity that keeps me learning through every project I work on and a steady hand for projects with detail work.
Every November, I participate in NaNoWriMo – or National Novel Writing Month – a month long frenzy where writers around the world commit to writing a 50,000 word novel of their own creation. NaNo, as it’s usually shortened, has a vast online presence for tracking daily word counts to stay on target or getting with the community when a writer is stuck or has something to share. There are also local meet-ups – or “write ins” – where local and fellow “Wrimos” get together and write with, commiserate with, and encourage each other. The Office of Letters and Light put on this event and gather many sponsors to support the writers with writing and editing software to help getting agents or self publishing offers.
When I’m not writing, I’m most likely found in my garden tending to vegetables, herbs, and flowers alike. I tend to their needs through pruning and pest control, besides the regular watering and conversation exchange. Indoor, I like to keep plants in my personal and working spaces as a way to ground myself and clear my head whenever I need to switch gears.
Here on JustRyn, you will find a small collection and sample of my writings, my art and my experiences. Feel free to comment on posts and engage with me. And if you think I might be a good fit for your small team or family, please reach out to me.
