My name is Shanyn and I endeavor to fall in love with my life anew every single day.
I’m sassy, sarcastic and a punk rock girl at heart which means I challenge all boundaries, breathe color and never pull my punches. I’m a perpetual day dreamer, a hopeless romantic and a chaser of rainbows. I cuss like a sailor and I will never, ever dumb myself down or censor myself just to make you more comfortable.
Also? I really like gin.
And so that you don’t think I’m immune to my own interview, I give you this page that I stole from James Lipton, who originally stole it from Bernard Pivot:
Favorite word? Gah! Just one? Fine. For today: Lovely. But I reserve the right to change this at will.
Least favorite word? Hump.
Favorite sound or noise? A quiet house.
Least favorite sound or noise? An ignored, crying baby.
Favorite curse word? Old standby? Fuck. New favorite? Thundercunt.
If you were not a writer, what would you like to be? Race car driver.
If you were not a writer, what you would absolutely NOT like to be? Crime scene clean-up crew.
What turns you on? Wit and people who pay attention.
What turns you off? Disrespect.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you enter the pearly gates? “You made it, girlfriend – you are loved, you made a difference and you belong here.”
