Author has written 7 stories for Humor, General, and Young Adult.

Hello there.

My name's Shannon. I am 18, and I am a writing major at Pratt Institute.

When I'm not writing or doing schoolwork, I read, sing (er not very well), dance (again, not very well), play music (violin), act (through my high school's drama club and summer programs; I am still trying to find something here at Pratt), and act like an obsessive fangirl and all-around weirdo.

Thanks for visiting!

I am the worst updater ever.

I know I promised to update ages ago. I know I promised that I wouldn't let my work become perpetual works-in-progress that would then die slow, painful, deaths. And I suck for not living up to said promises. However, I have been writing a lot more lately. I have a ton of things I can give you, most of which I've just uploaded. I have more waiting to be uploaded, but I figure that, since the weekends will be my regular update times, I want to be prepared for next week. I'll also be working on new pieces, but, sadly, I cannot promise any multiple-chapter pieces yet. (I promise to try to work on that as soon as I can, though!) If you're looking for some meatier pieces to read, check out my list of favorite authors and stories. They're brilliant.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Love always,
--Shannon (dreamgirl89)

Until My Wishing Star Falls, I'll Wait For You by Renlianne reviews
Mix a crazy, hopeless 23 year old, her blonde shopaholic room mate that's determined to set her up, a few just as crazy guys and what do you get? A plot filled with romance, comedy, and even drama to go along with all the awkward moments.

Sox in a Box by Myrika reviews
She's appalled by his food choices. He thinks she's a baseball curse. It's definitely not a match made in heaven or in Boston, for that matter. //REMOVED//

Trouble Starts With a Q by Myrika reviews
Spin-off of Redux. All Devon wanted was to be left alone. She tried reasoning. She tried pleading. Eventually she even turned to blackmail. The problem was Quentin Maxwell had just never learned the meaning of the word 'no.' //REMOVED//

Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell by i found nemo reviews
COMPLETE! First impressions are rarely right. But one of them is slightly prejudiced and the other’s got way too much pride. It was definitely hate at first sight until love got in the way. Losely based on P&P

She Walks in Beauty by one mourning dove reviews
A retelling of the myth of Hades and Persephone. The title is borrowed from the poem of the same name by Lord Byron, simply because I imagined Persephone to be a little bit darker...reviews are appreciated, especially if they aren't particularly nice.

Echo by Petals In My Palm reviews
Aislynn never wanted to love him. He was angry and had major baggage. She was a dreamer, immersed in her thoughts and the fictional worlds created by books. Then one night, he crawls through her window, and everything changed.

For the Love of the Game by i found nemo reviews
She's a football obsessed cheerleader who ends up coaching the school team. He thinks her place is on the sidelines. Mutual hatred? Yep. Sometimes the last person you want to be with is the one person you can't resist. AWFUL, read at your own risk!

Insomnia reviews
A poem produced from random lines written in my journal at 1:30 AM. The poem was also written at around 1:30 AM. I didn't sleep much that week. Hence the title.

I had the fruit tasting of a lifetime here reviews
A poem produced as a result of cutting up poems and newspaper articles and rearranging them. It's okay if you don't get it, because I don't either. That's the beauty of poetry.

Razorblade reviews
This was written for my Creative Writing portfolio. We had to think about where poetry hides, and I managed to take some ideas and make a poem out of it. The person I talk about isn't real, though I borrowed my friend Allison's eye color. Enjoy.

Peanut Butter and Jelly is the Only One for Me reviews
This was written for my Creative Writing portfolio. We were asked to write a silly poem. I sat around and thought about it. And I tried to get my mind off of how hungry I was. And, suddenly, I was inspired. Hope you enjoy it.
