In “Person to Person” Tennessee Williams suggests that every artist is a young child shrieking “look at me!” to the deaf heavens. This constant demand of attention is a perilous play that might end in by-standers’ indifferent observation, leaving the artist alone “on the shelf”. Williams suggests a careful balance between the personal and the public, the observer and the potential fellow performer: “know that out of your personal lyricism something has to be created that will not only attract observers but participants in the performance”.

A white page, a beginning… Taking a deep breath, I take a step into the unknown…

I’ve been writing and reading ever since I can remember. I define and redefine myself through writing. It seems that there’s a gentle difference between scribbling a personal journal in a sealed notebook, and sharing my thoughts online, between creating fiction and writing a dissertation. Or is there ?
Is the fine line between ‘fiction’, ‘personal’ and ‘academic’ writing really that clear, or is it a figment of our definition-oriented mind ? Is there a place, a space, a time were the seemingly different processes intertwine ?
