I have come to accept that my obsession with stories is not a phase. Twenty years of frequent trips to the library and $100 weekly trips to the local Barnes & Nobles should have clued me into how much I’m invested in books. The countless hours spent daydreaming or letting my imagination run wild after playing a game of “What if?” scenarios should have made it obvious. Not to mention the several attempts at writing a full length book that failed on every account and yet I kept finding myself reading advice on writing and always thinking of yet another story idea despite promising myself to practice restraint and leave all this foolishness behind. Storytelling is a part of who I am and while I am unsure of what the future holds. . . .I choose to take the plunge into the world of publishing and hopefully meet people who love books as much as I do.
This blog will be my personal corner on the internet for recording my experiences in writing, books reviews, and general thoughts of the publishing industry. I’m not a professional anything nor do I aspire to win awards. I just really love reading and writing. =)
I have accounts on the following websites under the same pen name (no stories uploaded yet!):
Also, I feel compelled to add that Zali Jun is not my real name and just a pen name I use. The reason why I do this is because 1) I like my privacy and 2) reading and writing are such huge parts of my life that I need a separate entity for organization purposes. Plus, it’d be the cool kickass name I’d want if I got to choose.
