Hi, my name is Shelby, and I am a current Creative Writing and English major and Film Studies minor at Arkansas Tech University. I am a staff writer at the school’s newspaper The ArkaTech, and I am a staff writer at 4 Your Excitement online.
I have been writing creatively since I was thirteen-years-old when I discovered fanfiction online. The love of fanfiction turned into a love of writing and creating worlds and characters. I have always enjoyed reading which has also cultivated a love of language.
My love of fanfiction is tied to my love and passion for movies and television. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved movies and TV shows. Like writing and reading, television and film offer a medium to new worlds but unlike writing and reading, the entertainment industry offers pictures and colors to go with their stories.
But, you knew that already.
So, grab a seat. Munch on some popcorn. I’m just a normal girl. I’m not a professional critic, and you won’t find stuffy academic type film critiques here. What you will find is a girl who loves movies, and who hopes that she can share a little bit of her love with you guys, the readers. Maybe I’ll also be able to expand some horizons and suggest some new types of films?
Either way, thank you for stopping by and enjoy the site. You can find links to my social media on the right including links to 4 Your Excitement and The ArkaTech.
Enjoy the show!
