Message from Writer

Hey, I'm Shannon. They/them pronouns, please.
I've been writing as long as I can remember, and I never intend to stop. I'm a spoonie (chronically ill person), but I try not to let that stop me from writing every day. I write mostly sci-fi and fantasy. I like to read and watch stuff on the shadowy side, I identify more with villains than heroes, and I have a bit of a dry, dark sense of humor.
Cheers ;)

Crushed Wings Can't Fly

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

So I guess there’s a war
I have to win.
I guess there’s this void
I have to fill,
or maybe it’s time to go down to the gates
of hell
and beat on them until someone comes,
comes to tell me my lot,
how many battles I have fought,
how many I still have left
to lose.
Maybe from the lips of a demon
it will not seem like so much,
and I will take the leap,
the plunge, ...

I do not wish anyone to think
That I would not have been
Proud
To be a woman.
 
I would have been proud
To be a woman
For it is in my nature
To be proud of what I am.
 
But I am not a woman,
Or a man.
I am something else.
Simply myself.

And there is pride enough
In that.

Disabled Characters in Speculative Fiction

FREE WRITING

        
        As someone who’s both chronically ill and a reader/writer of speculative fiction, I want to see more people like me in the stuff I read. I want characters who live with chronic illness and chronic pain and terrible mental health and incurable diseases. What I don’t want is Fault in Our Starskinds of stories. Trust me, as a sick person the last thing I want to read about or watch is a story about a sick person dealing...
