For years and years, I thought I wanted to write plain fiction. I wanted to become a talented writer such as Toni Morrison. At times, I wrote short stories I felt compelled to edit and publish. However, after taking some courses in College, I found myself writing with so much passion on something I had no interest in the past: non-fiction. "How uncreative is that!" But, no. I found myself immerse in research on subjects I questioned and dwelled on. I found myself able to write pages and pages on issues that roused powerful emotions. If I had more time, I would have researched more on the statistics, the history, the controversies, and personal accounts revolving around controversial and ethical issues. This was the kind of book I wanted to write. But, as a student who had BS'd her way to College, I realized how ignorant I was. That is why I decided to hold off on posting anything for the critical public. I have to start from research. Any critism and advice is appreciated, but please keep in mind that I am aware of my own ignorance and is in the slow process of gaining knowledge of the issues I want to write on. Also, I am aware of my awful grammar, and this journal is simply for writing on my thoughts and brainstorms for potential ideas.
