I have deliberately written this web in a manner which could probably be considered fictional. I am always informing you, the reader, of the very processes which are going through my head, even as I write/type my words. In addition to writing, I also write about how I write, and share with you the thoughts that go through my head even as I do so.

I am writing something, ie my thoughts about notions of authorship. At the same time, however, my language is free; I communicate my pure thoughts to the reader 'without such communication developing any parasitical message'. Therefore, I believe that such a style of writing illustrates certain aspects of what Barthes calls the 'author-writer' hybrid which exists in our present day.
