I am one of those people. Yes, those, who consider themselves writers.
Even though I have never published anything I have written – other than, of course, academic work – I know I am a writer. Because I see my world in prose. When I am especially happy, the prose turns into poetry. I describe things in my head with words; there are always labels for everything. I love to use these abstract little symbols to put order in the mess, to understand, to create.
This is the main reason why I decided to write a blog about my PhD. It will be a way of putting some order in the next three years of my life.
So, welcome to this space! I hope these words can be as useful to you as they are to me :)
