Doing Text

This chapter explores the act of making text. It looks at the author's own biography. Understanding one's contribution to both the textual and cultural milieu in which one situates themself provides concrete meaning to their existence in the space and time in which they are historically rooted. Of equal importance are questions on the very nature of how one's textual and cultural footprint impacts on the wider society they are in the process of creating. Making texts is a mode of reinforcing this underlying ideology, a strategy of facilitating, locating, constructing, and ultimately communicating or 'making' one's sense of self and place.

Keywords:   making text, biography, cultural milieu, textual footprint, cultural footprint, creating process, sense of self
