Introductions have an omniscient quality. They suggest the author knows more than most about the thing they’ve chosen to write about. Writing one for myself has presented me with that moment I’m in right now: in my late twenties, I knew absolutely everything; now I know nothing.
Writing organises my thoughts a little:
- On routine
- On bodies
- On family
London is home, for now. Routine helps control the shallow breathing. Then, my goal is to progress my ability to understand the history, techniques and structures in writing, as well as improve my own.
