from the desk of

writing real life

Welcome to my corner of crazy.

My name is Shannon & I write about real life. You know, the stuff you don't show on Instagram, the junk that makes you wonder WTF is actually happening right now & whether or not you will survive the chaos. This is the good stuff. The hard stuff. This is writing real life.

Real life has a texture all its own; messy, curvy edges, confusing & utterly breathtaking.

& I've got boatloads of experience.
