I aspire to be a writer that makes readers feel something they know in an altogether unfamiliar way.
My name is Khan [con] and I am a writer as well as a student of video game design. Not too long ago I was a marketer who often had to blog and write as part of his job, but it is when I post stories here that I truly feel like a writer.
I created ‘Notes and Drafts’ during NanoWriMo as a way of sharing the stories I write with people who are passionate about them. But why a blog, why not a journal?
To put it simply, a journal of my life would be incredibly dull. Here’s an example:
Get out of bed, study the math part of the GRE until hungry enough to get breakfast, study, eat for the last time, and make it back to bed.
I think I’ll spare myself and the world the details of my cozy but unexciting life. It’s far better to tell stories that make people flinch, anticipate, and laugh. I aspire to be a writer that makes readers feel something they know in an altogether unfamiliar way.
In a year’s time I hope to curate Notes and Drafts with stand alone short stories, and two big series. The first series is “Sonata Knights” a mystery inspired by the likes of Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep and Dashiel Hammet’s The Postman Always Rings Twice. The second The Joke That Killed Us All is a fictional memoir that covers the end of the human civilization as it relates to my first novel, ‘Pray For Armistice‘.
