Well hi there! Let me start by saying I completely suck at introductions. Starting with my name would be a good start, I guess! I'm Shannon, I'm 19 years old and I fall under most of the categories any other writer is likely to fall under. I'm a total bookworm, a complete ?writerholic? and you will not find me without a good ol' book stuffed under my nose. One of my greatest pleasures in life is sitting in the garden with a glass of ice cold lemonade, an old typewriter and a rat on my shoulder (literally! I have 2 - Alfie and Dimple, my little rattie babies). I watch too many movies and read too many books so I guess you could say I'm a little eccentric and other-worldly in the way I view things. In September I'll be starting university to study English Literature and Creative Writing which is something I am (obviously) very interested in. Eep! This is my first time on a writing forum although I am an active forum user elsewhere so I'm very excited to be a part of this one and I can't wait to meet all you lovely people. I love making new friends so don't be afraid to talk to me in any which way!
