Hey guys! I know it’s been a while, but I haven’t had too much comment activity and realized it’s been a lot of me telling you and not a lot of asking for input.

So! I wanted to put it out there. If you could pick any project of mine, any package, for free, what would you pick?

If you’re unfamiliar with what I offer, feel free to float around the ol’ website to see my packages, and my mini commissions are on my linktree which is included with my socials!

Leave a comment below and let’s see what projects people want to see written!!
Much love,

Sooooo hi guys!

I’m terribly sorry about the unexplained absence. Life kind of caught up to me and I had to set Rose Petal Writings aside for a hot minute while I focused on my personal life and full-time job.

But thankfully, things are settling down and I have returned! I will likely keep my posting not as frequent as before, as I won’t have the time to be posting every single day, but I will be doing my best to provide regular updates on my personal works as well as posting my (SFW) commissions to the website as I get them!

If you are interested in one such commission, pricing is available on my website (my rates will not be changing just because I have employment) as well as the kinds of commissions I accept!

As a side note, I do accept commissions for NSFW work but please keep in mind it will NOT be posted to my website until I have an age wall and I will NOT be writing those kinds of commissions for anyone under 18! I will ask for your age and I will be keeping a record of the conversation in order to protect myself and my work. Don’t be offended if I ask your age, it’s part of the territory and if you refuse to give your age, I will not write NSFW for you!

Thankfully, I haven’t had any issues with that but it is something I want commissioners to be aware of. If you’ve read this far, THANK YOU! Without your likes, without your views, I may not have come back to this and felt like I couldn’t do the writing I want to do. Each one of you, follower or casual viewer, means the world to this one woman show. So sincerely, thank you.

Much love,

Olivia πŸŒΉπŸ’œ

Oh my gosh you guys!
This took longer than I thought it would, but I got the website updated to include some of my original poems. I really hope you like them!
I already have some stuff posted in the writing excerpts, but I thought you guys deserved better than screenshots. As I learn more about WordPress (and avoid my NSFW work), I decided to use my newfound knowledge to expand the content I offer for viewing!
If you decide you like the content you’re seeing and want some for yourself, I also updated my commissions page (packages and pricing) to include my hourly rate and mini commissions. All of these can be found on my linktree as well!
Linktree link: https://linktr.ee/RosePetalWritings
Thank you guys for taking a look at the update, and I hope you all enjoy seeing new content from me in the future!

Much love,
Olivia

Ha, you guys thought I was done 😏 That’s right, I’m back and I’m making updates!
🌹
I’m keeping most of it under wraps until I’m finished, but just know that it means you guys will get more content out of me!
🌹
I could always use support in the forms of likes and shares, but I also am accepting commissions! Consider sending me a message or an email (olivia.rosepetalwritings@gmail.com) to get your quote today!

Hey guys!

So, I want to start off by apologizing for the unannounced break I’ve taken from social media. I’ve been scrolling a bit, liking and sharing here and there, but haven’t been posting nearly as much as I used to. I’m terribly sorry for that because you guys come here for content and it just hasn’t been there for you.

But! Next order of business. I’m looking to do a pretty big episode for the podcast to 1) Make up for not posting in February, and 2) To tackle a really difficult topic with writing and with the state of the world. I want to tackle writing about tragedy and grief.

A lot of people have been jumping on the Ukraine popularity train for multiple reasons, not all of them in support of Ukraine. I am running a bit of a freelance promotion right now where I’ll donate part of the commission price (you set it, minimum of 25%) to the IRC. However. I’ve seen people use the hashtags meant to garner support for Ukraine as a means of promoting their products which are completely unrelated.

I want to say this makes me sick. It really does. Yes, you want to use popular hashtags for SEO and algorithm benefits. But keep your tags relevant and do not. DO. NOT. Use tags meant to support others in need to promote an unrelated product. It’s unethical, immoral, and wrong.

I’m looking for someone to guest star on the podcast with me for this episode, but I do have some guidelines. I want someone who has written/researched about tragedy or grief, its effects on the brain, or perhaps even someone trained in psychology relating to the grieving process. I do not want to spread misinformation about this kind of thing due to what’s going on with the world right now.

Anyway. After that heavy discussion. This blog post will (hopefully) hold you over until I can get the podcast recorded and uploaded. Until then, take care of yourselves as needed, watch the dumb cat videos to give yourself some good feels, and take a break from social media as needed.

Much love,

Olivia πŸ’œπŸŒΉ

Guys, guys, guys!
I don’t have any exciting freelancing news, but I do have an announcement! I got a job working full-time for Members 1st Federal Credit Union! I’m not sure how much I can say about my job, but it does mean I’ll be less active on socials compared to before. You’ll mostly see me in the evenings or in the really early morning before my commute. I’m not disappearing for good, I am still accepting commissions, it’s just going to be a little more quiet the majority of the day. Thank you all for your continued support and hopefully I’ll have something exciting to share soon!
Much love,
Olivia πŸ’œπŸŒΉ

Hey guys!

I’m a lot more active on my Twitter. If you want to keep up with me and see what I’m up to more often, follow me @rosepetalwriter on Twitter!!

I’m gonna leave this here and say that anyone who is under 18 cannot, CANNOT, commission adult-only content! I know it’s an issue for other writers in the genre so I am nipping it in the bud. Adults, feel free to commission multiple stories from me. I may send cookies to you as thanks.

Much love,

Okay, this is really soon after my last post but I asked it on my social media and just had to get feedback here too. What are your thoughts on vampires and, specifically, their fangs?
As you’ve probably seen from my excerpts page, I’m working on a vampire story called Vampyres Across Time. I’m very excited for it and have put a lot of research into it and that research continues. This includes how I want to portray my vampires.
So, what this means is I’m getting scientific. I don’t want people getting confused as to how my vampires drink blood or anything like that, so I want to know. Biologists, cryptozoologists, and fellow weirdos, how would vampire fangs work for you?
On Instagram, my brother had a very good idea, but I want to collect more to decide where I want to take it. Right now I’m liking his because it’s very similar to the vampire bat, named due to their diet of blood. So take that as you will, look them up because they’re awesome little creatures, and let me know what you think in the comments!
Much love,
Olivia

You guys, I think the best Christmas present is so many people viewing my site πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜­ I’m so grateful for each visitor I get. Even if I don’t get a commission, every visitor means that I’m being seen and brings me one step closer to finding that perfect client. I don’t post a lot on the blog here and I do apologize for that, but absolutely feel free to follow me on social media or, if you’d like to see something else become of this blog, send me an email with suggestions!
In the meantime, my holiday special is currently running for 3 more days! It’s going to run until midnight on December 24th, which is this Friday. Get your commission at a discounted price or be doomed to wait another year (or pay full price 😱)! Thank you guys again, seriously, y’all are amazing.
Much, much, MUCH love,
Olivia

Sup, guys! I’m back, sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I have news! My holiday special is running until Christmas Eve, December 24th. You can get 30% off of my commission packages and 15% off of regular commissions. Hop on over to my Linktree or send me an email to talk commissions!
I also made the second episode of my podcast, Rose Petal Musings! You can find it on Anchor.fm, Spotify, and YouTube. This episode talks about writing and music and features my friend Hannah Middaugh! Give it a listen, send one of us (or both of us!) a commission, and don’t forget to have an awesome holiday season.
Much love,
Olivia
