Hey there!


Lol yep, it’s a fairy crown Snapchat filter!

My name is Mary Shaffer. I’m 23 and living in New York. I’m a writer. My focus so far has been fiction, but I would love to tackle article, nonfiction, or even a memoir someday. I have tons of creative projects I want to work on – not just writing – from music to drawing to clothing design, etc. This blog is one of them! I keep a daily journal, but that’s for exploring my more private moments. This blog is to chronicle the things I come across which excite and inspire me. I’m always looking to learn and experience new things. 

Now I could go into a long background story, but I don’t want to bore you too much just yet! So here are the highlights:

Birthday: October 27 (I’m a Scorpio)

Siblings: 2 – a younger sister and younger brother

Hogwarts House: Slythern (and darn proud of it!) 

Pets: None currently (but I’m on the fast track for becoming a crazy cat lady)

Favorites: My family, books, the beach, Chinese food, Harry Potter, The Beatles, Stand By Me, Stephen King, James Dean, Breakfast at Tiffany’s (Audrey Hepburn in general), cats, fluffy blankets, and anything that makes me laugh! 

I go through periods of obsession with things, so don’t be too surprised if you see I’m going on about the same subject for a while. If you want to know my take on something feel free to let me know (politely) and I’ll do my best. 

I hope this blog feels inclusive to all who wish to read it. 

Enjoy! 🙂 

xx Mary
