I like hats. And I hate cold weather.

I like hats. And I hate cold weather.

My name is Susannah, and may I wish you, friend, a hearty welcome to my little corner of the internet! This is my humble variety blog. Here, I blog about whatever I feel like whenever I feel like it. Sorry, no set schedule. 🙂

Now for a little background. I have lived in Virginia for the majority of my life. Fun fact: I was actually born in a blizzard in Massechusetts. I am in college at Liberty University on a full tuition scholarship, studying Digital Media. I was homeschooled as a kid and plan on homeschooling my own kids someday. I am currently in a constant state of angst over school and other projects.

My main future career goal is more or less write creatively; get paid for it. I’ll take novel writing, screenwriting, or short stories, really whatever allows me to make a living doing what I love. For now, my writing covers a wide range of genres, but usually I stick to sci-fi and fantasy. I’m a big fan of “fractured fairy tales” and Greek Mythology. My favorite author currently is Frank Peretti (This Present Darkness, Monster). Some of my other favored authors include Rick Riordan, Eoin Colfer, Ted Dekker, and Jerry B. Jenkins. A few classical favorites are C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Ray Bradbury, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

I will go ahead and apologize in advance if I ever offend you in any of my posts. I do this now, because I want to seem reasonable, and because I never intend to apologize again. I will more than likely never change my mind on a subject after I have put it in writing, but please, if you disagree with me, you’re welcome to try to change my mind. I love arguing.

I guess that’s pretty much me in a nutshell. I hope you enjoy my ramblings as much I enjoy writing them.

  1. Heyyyy homeschoolers unite 🙂 Does one of your parents homeschool you? Or do you do it online? I went to a private for kindergarten and 2nd grade, and I’m in 11th grade…so other than the state difference, we’re pretty much in the same boat lol What month were you born? I agree with your book choices also. I like mostly all kinds…but Sci-Fi and Fantasy are my favorite!

    Hi Susannah! I just wanted to let you know that I’ve nominated you for the Sunshine Award! You can check out my nomination here: http://littlegrowingpains.com/2013/11/21/id-like-to-thank-the-academy/. Thank you for your awesome writing!

  3. Well IF I ever have kids, I’m seriously considering homeschooling. My friends (with kids) think it’s weird, but I’ve actually done my research. So students like you give me hope. And I went to public and (later) private school and I can still be socially awkward (although that’s more of a self-perception). So I think the home school thing is just an unfortunate stereotype…in the end, we are who we are.

  4. Susannah, I think you’re quite FABULOUS! #writeOn

[…] Susannah Ailene Martin is writing for ShannonAThompson.com today, and her post is below, but here is an excerpt from her “About Me” page, so you can get to know this writer a little bit first: “I am mostly interested in creating fiction novels in the long run, but you will more than likely not see any fiction in this blog. My writing covers a wide range of genres, but usually I stick to Sci-fi and fantasy. I’m a big fan of “fractured fairy tales” and Greek Mythology.” […]

    Nice to meet you! I found your blog through Austin’s blog pitch party.

  10. Hi Susannah, I love Sen. Cruz too. Was right there watching for you, on the puter, but too dark, and for sure too many. So was there in spirit sort-of. Truly blessed me. reminded a bit of the “tent evangelists” of my childhood. Yes they had sawdust on the ground, so folk could “walk” the “sawdust trail” to give their life to Christ. But that’s another story. And here is not the place. This is a great site, and I promise not to clog it up. I’m very proud of you, glad you’re feeling better, keep up the good work. Luv, Gram
