Fiction

Fiction is art; fiction is life.

Our reality is constructed literally; even though it is experience itself that actualizes reality, language facilitates an awareness of an experience’s form and allows it to be reified.

The Cartesian divide between what is fiction and what is non-fiction continues to fascinate. All narrative is a fiction of sorts. The written word is a sort of fiction within a fiction, too down to the assumption of permanence that it still seems to inspire in contemporary society. I enjoy a good story, and I spend what time I can reading and writing, and sharing a bit of that here too.


“Fiction’s what it means to be a human being.” -David Foster Wallace
