WriteShed is where I do my thinking and scribble down my ideas. My target audience (that’s something I’ve never considered before), are those people who are asking profound questions about the nature of reality and human existence – as well as people interested in life, living, writing and poetry. Can a person express the true wonder of existence in words? I want this website to look deep into the nature of our experience. There will be some superficial stuff here too, I’m sure 😉
Until recently I have been working on a PhD – Creative Writing – research project focusing on how we construct our lives using narrative. As part of the project I was writing a metafiction novel to explore how this process of narrative construction works. Understanding religion as narrative was the final element of my emerging personal philosophy. I stopped the PhD after several bereavements in my family and a sudden loss of motivation brought about by these deaths. The pandemic didn’t help either. My journey to understanding reality and human experience has not stopped. This website will enable me to share that journey.
