Hey there! Thanks for visiting my new blog. What has changed? Well, not much. But what you can expect is some new content (but all literature related). You can still visit my old blog here, for an account of what happened and why I had to shift. But mostly, I have wanted a cleaner format for long, so I hope you enjoy this new home.
Who am I?
On the blogosphere, I like to sign off as ‘Jane’ but if you have been around for long, you probably know my real name. I know it’s a poor attempt at maintaining a pseudonym, but I would still like to write under said identity.
For a living, I work in a publishing house as researcher. My ultimate aim in life is to write stuff that appears as if they were taken off the internet. I also want to go back to the vintage era. The wrong kind of jeans irritates me. And umm, I draw; I draw analogies.
In my free time, I like to read, bake, click photos, may be watch a good TV series. I guess that’s all for now. Maybe with time, you will get a better insight into my likings and interests.
Here you’ll find personal experiences, thoughts on random humans and snippets of my weird imagination in the form of stories, poems, letters and quotes. Other than that, you can expect travelogues, book reviews and maybe some more literature-oriented stuff!
Back in 2014, I would often catch myself feeling worthless and looking at other social media feeds where I had nothing to offer. On 17th September of the same year, I decided to put a stop to those negative thoughts and do something constructive for once- write a blog. Choosing a name for a blog was of course a struggle. But luckily, I didn’t have to think much as I knew what I wanted. My goal was to stick to a literary term and something easy to remember. My various choices included Diary of a Damsel, Scarlett’s Letters etc. But in the end came Plain Jane, that basically stands for an average girl. I had first heard of this term in the summer of 2008 while playing some online quizzes to kill time. That particular one was titled- ‘Which literary figure are you?’ The result of that quiz gave birth to this blog.
