About

Welcome to my blog! I’m Susannah, a writer of speculative fiction, graphic designer, and lover of music, stories, history, and controversial opinions in the liberal arts world. I originally started this blog in the hopes of becoming a better writer, to share what I’ve learned, and to inspire other creatives with the theme of story. After all, stories can come in all different forms, from movies, to music, to random pictures or pieces of writing. There’s a reason why stories have stuck with us ever since the creation of mankind; Stories hold power. The simple art of storytelling has given rise to knowledge, innovation, the preservation of traditions, the growth of empires, and the continuation of history. In the wise weaving of words, stories have a secret power that has and can change the world.

As my vision has changed slightly over the years, I have discovered more and more the ever current importance ofΒ truth. Humankind has always struggled to define the truth: what is it? What is true? As my writing journey progresses, a goal of mine through my stories is to seek the truth–not to define it or push agendas, but to simply question. I do this mainly by writing stories that help me to better understand the truth of God’s word featuring characters and realms that deal with the beautiful and the ugly of the world, the ever circulating themes of injustice, evil, and hope. Since I hold the Bible, God’s word, to be the absolute truth, I want to take certain themes from the Bible and apply it in my works of fiction, not just to uphold Christian values in my writing, but also to question them. In today’s world, the truth has become twisted, irrelevant, and neglected. I believe that now, more than ever, the desire to seek truth needs to be brought back into the light. This may look like uncovering historical events that are never talked about or facing the danger of today’s media or simply pondering the nature of ourselves, human beings, and the universe that we were put in. In digression, I bring back the overarching theme of all these topics: the theme of story. Each one of us has a specific story to tell, but it is just a short story in the grand cosmic anthology that God has written. That is my goal as a creative, a writer, and a blogger.

Here’s a little bit about me: I’m a/an

  • Visual content creator with a BA in graphic design
  • Amateur sound tech
  • Christian. I believe in the grace and redemption that Jesus has given me.
  • overthinker, if we’re being honest here

  4. Hey, Susannah! I hope you are doing well πŸ™‚ I just tagged you for the “Freestyle Writing Challenge,” and I wanted to let you know. Of course, you don’t have to do it, but I thought I would let you know! Here is a link if you are interested: https://writefortheking.wordpress.com/2015/12/03/the-two-tags-that-i-promised/.
    And by the way, Frankenstein is one of my favorite books, so it makes me happy to see that it is your “book of the month”!
    God bless,

    1. Hello Gabrielle! I’m glad to have found another Frankenstein fan. And thanks for the tag. If it’s for the Liebster award, is there some badge that comes with it?

        Oh, I love Frankenstein; it is one of my favorite books, and Mary Shelley writes such beautiful prose. I read a very interesting essay about how Mary Shelley was actually making some very strong statements against her husband’s materialism and for theistic vitalism.

  5. Sorry, I mistyped that. I actually tagged you for the Liebster award (there are two tags on that post, and you are welcome to do both if you like), but I offically tagged you for the second award. Sorry for the typo!
