Shannon was also part of a collaboration between 26 bloggers and Audiomachine entitled Tree of Life: Branching Out. Brief description below:

Tree of Life: Branching Out is a collaborative writing challenge, where creative minds meet epic movie music. Preselected guest writers representing all genres, from all across the globe, contributed their own 150 word excerpt to a continuing story collectively written over the course of 26 days. Each of the writers found inspiration in a featured composition from the motion picture music production house, audiomachine’s new TREE OF LIFE album. These clever masters of the craft spun the story in whatever direction they chose, picking up where the previous writer left off, resulting in the ultimate collaborative tale.
