“I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say.”

-- Flannery O'Connor


I'm Mary Shelley. (It's a double name.) I'm not the best at writing about myself, but I'll give it a shot:

I'm a Christian; I love Jesus more than anything, and I am forever a vessel for his work. I am a freshman in college studying English and Religion. I love to write--I've been doing it for as long as I can remember--and I hope to be a published novelist someday. For now, you can read my words on this corner of the web. I love books, though I'm not the best at finishing them. I'm a southern girl, born and raised, and I love the mountains. I'm an avid daydreamer; if you want to know what my daydreams look like you can check out my "aesthetics" board on pinterest. My aim in life is to make a difference, to shed light on the beauty and heartbreak and joy and relevance of the human experience through my writing, and to ultimately point to the Creator.

I love hearing from you, so shoot me an email anytime!

xx MS
