Introspection -- Fiction
These are twenty-four exercises in personal writing that observe an anonymous self in the apartment, who is writing, or reading, or looking at mundane things. The exercises are collected in four sections registering different iterations in self-recognition, as the anonymous, closely observed, changes from a shared commonplace to the particular and personal state. The exercises use prose paragraphs, lineation, and figures as a private methodology into the problem of writing: learning to see the self, thinking on the page, as a thing made from words.
