~Stories speak to us on a deeper level, in metaphor and symbolism, with an understanding that touches the very depths of our psyche and soul.~
It is nice to meet you and thank you for taking a moment to read some of my writing. My name is Sasha, or sometimes Ayllium, and perhaps more often, but less preferably, Christopher. My primary writing genre is Sci Fi or Fantasy, but I don’t rule out the possibility of straying into the occasional social commentary or critique.
I’ll let my writing speak for itself with the hope you enjoy the reading as much as I enjoy the writing. The experiences of my life have resolved that this is not a path of choice, but an inescapable track from which I cannot deviate, nor would wish to. Like a freight train careening forward full speed ahead with no breaks to speak of, this is it. What this means depends very much on how my writing is received and how it evolves when faced with your scrutiny, dear reader, so please be lavish in your praise and ruthless in your critiques, because there can be no growth without pain or courage without encouragement.
We, in our human experience, yearn for stories and the hidden lessons they hold. For the better part of human civilization, and prior to, we have defined and inspired ourselves with the stories we’ve told. The very meaning of our lives is derived from the stories we tell. Stories are one of the few things that really bind the entirety of humanity together.
Stories are where we keep all the knowledge of our ancestors and all the hidden knowledge that we either don’t know how to, or simply can’t, communicate in plain language. Stories speak to us on a deeper level, in metaphor and symbolism, with an understanding that touches the very depths of our psyche and soul. Fiction, storytelling, the intimate relationships that form between reader and characters are more significant and communicative than any other direct lines of communication, because it involves the whole of us.
Stories are sacred and storytelling is an art form. I cannot profess to be a master of this art, nor do I intend to insinuate that my stories, in and of themselves, are sacred. No, the sacredness of a story does not lie within the story itself, but in the reader for whom the story resonates.
What I hope, more than anything, is that you find something in my writing that resonates with you.
