Confessional Fiction

 A Magical Tour in Darkness, and Joyfulness


As a continuance of the intellectual texts and metaphors used at this webpage, the author has planned to experiment with her deep hunger for written English by diving into the unknown, such as to explore confessional and fictional short texts. These short texts is a combinatory of self-experienced confessions, affective forecasting, retrospective reflections, self-therapeutical intentions, and simply trust in the future. But, even though some of the emotions are personal and genuine, most of the texts are simply a result of pure fictional creativity, and imaginary, that means that the characters and plots are all fictional. No one are to blame! After all, the author's greatest motivation for creating these short texts, is to share experiences, magic, fictional tales, imaginaries, common, and usable to mankind. However, I am new to these kinds of literary explorations, so be patient, kind, and look upon these with unjudging eyes, and excitement. To get you started, an example of the language style and form, is available in the menu bar;  "Confessional Fiction: Short Texts", and the title; "The Past Can Bite Like a Snake (2017)". I hope you will find something meaningful, and familiar to your own visual imaginary, in these confessional, but most of all fictional endeavors. The author strongly believe that something good and wise can arise from darkness, and unexpectedly start to twist and blast and tease everyone's positivity nerve. Ignite your curiosity. It is the perfect novelty of every emotional beginning whether it's dark, or light. Let's start the process of spreading a little bit of magic and compassion, empathy and love to you and the world. Will you come along for a magical tour in darkness, and joyfulness? In your darkest room: let the sunrays gently hit you!

MY HISTORY


My devotional interest in academic writing

My interest in academic writing is something that I have nutured from the first days I attended my studies in architecture. I guess I am a writing architect, human geographer and photographer. In my studies I unintentionally sought theory courses with assigned writing tasks. Since my career took a late academic turn; when I started my studies in human geography, I was able to follow my passion for academic writing, fully!


Knowledge & photography

One of my core interests in human geography were complex theoretical essays. Not, that I think that this is the way to write academically! I rather started to pounder on how to make academic writing more accessible, by adding metaphors and a more colourful language, inspired by the visual language of photography.


MY VISION: A VISUAL SPATIAL APPROACH


To make knowledge accessible, the author utilizes core pinciples of open science and radical interdisciplinarity. The core aim of open science is to democraticise knowledge and seek to connect unexpected theories (interdisciplinarity). By using a language that is more colourful than what is expected academically, the aim is to make knowledge a page turner and to excite! The next way to make it more intriguing is to add complexity. And, finally, the author has sought to connect theory that brings new insights and novelties, in which the reader becomes passionate about the questions posed. However, the core principles of a visual spatial approach, equals having a holistic perspective on fundamental matters in theory and in life, or to engage in existential matters, the big questions in research and life.


I will argue that knowledge can be colourful, unexpected, visual, spatial, be questioning, be meaningful, funny, and shine like photographies!

USEFUL INFO


Start with the easiest essay! Or, if you prefer complexity...

 

  • The Street is the New Art Forum! (easy read)
  • To Love Your Enemy (is a Romeo and Juliet Story)
  • The Cathedral of Modern Art (is the longest and most complex essay)
  • The First Mover (challenges your critical sense, and is against my conviction, the author is pro offshore wind turbines, and against land based wind turbines, that harms nature)
  • The Past Can Bite Like a Snake (is a slightly fictional short text and an aforism for some)
