I have one of the most amazing and underrated staffs of creatives in the world!
Bold claim you say? Allow me to present the evidence.
In the midst of a global pandemic the staff of TheWRITEaddiction has faithfully and consistently continued to deliver weekly content. They did this despite multi state moves, new jobs, lost jobs, lockdowns, rapid homeschool adaptations and so much more.
And these folks don’t make a dime from this blog.
We set out on this adventure years ago as a way to support one another as accountability partners in making time to honor our gifts when it comes to writing and as we head into this final quarter of a very strange year I just felt the need to publicly acknowledge how awesome these folks are and how much I love reading their content.
And after all these years our numbers are beginning to reflect that some of you good people out in the Verse like reading along with us too which makes all of us smile and charges us up to write more.
Here are a few of the group’s creative accomplishments from this year of quarantine.
Clinnesha, leads the pack in views this year and is slaying with these numbers! We want to celebrate her for leveraging her work here on TheWRITEaddiction through submitting pieces to other sites.
Clinnesha was also featured on Your Artsy Girl Podcast. You can check out that interview (Here)
And if that wasn’t enough, she also staged her play “Love Be Like…”
This woman is also a whole mama of three amazing babies, wife and faculty member and I am so happy that she makes the time to share her gift with us all.
Justin, stepped down from the weekly pool this year but did so to make time to publish his first book Slaying the Lion.
That was no small feet especially when you consider the time he pours into his family, his students and his own schooling. If y’all haven’t purchased a copy yet, you definitely should. This would make a great stocking stuffer for some Christmas shopping lists.
Oh and lest I forget, Justin has a whole YouTube channel “Ballin’ With the Belts”
and a TikTok following of 24.4K. 🤯
Coletta, launched a new podcast called Beyond Stuck which is amazing.
Everyone, go subscribe. It’s free so we can all definitely show her some love and get blessed by the testimonies of others who she has helped coach out of challenging situations.
MamaRad, pivoted during quarantine to do her daily Corona Chronicles.
I have enjoyed reading along on her daily adventures. I remember back when she couldn’t imagine being able to write on a daily basis and now she is a DAILY blogger. 😆 Plus, I’ve seen many a comment from people who have been blessed by her testimonies of work, life and loving on her family. Look at God! 🙌🏾
Neikeita, you already know how proud I am of you for sticking it out with me on Showing Our Sass, the first official web series to launch out of TheWRITEaddiction, and I’m super excited to get back to work with you for Season 2!

Nastassia and Neikeita stepped up the game with branding for their posts that made me start getting my act together logo wise and I gotta shout them out for that.
Oh and I am going to toot my own horn a little too cause I’ve got to get better at that. The Lord has blessed me to accomplish some major personal victories this year with a major rebranding of my YouTube channel (@Martagwyn) the launch of two new web series “Showing Our Sass” and Go Marta, Go!”, slow but steady growth across my IG and YouTube followings, some amazing professional contacts related to my creative endeavors and my first film festival submission.
I also enjoyed having the camera flipped on me as a guest on my friend Patrick Ladonis’s show “First Impressions”. You can check out that interview here.
Now, I just need to strap in for NaNoWriMo because Honor Thy Father is going to get finished and published this year! 🙌🏾 If you’d like to read the preview to my novel you can click here.
I already said my private thank you to my staff but it’s important to me that they are publicly recognized for the amazing work they do in creating content through their gifts. Thank y’all for being a part of this little community.
The year is not over and we’ve all got more to share so be sure to keep reading, liking, sharing, commenting and smash that subscribe button so we can keep this thing going.
