In this book we have endeavoured to show how reflexivity is a central feature of the writing process, and indeed, of the creative process in general. Whether we are thinking about what it means to find a writing voice, or our stance as authors in relation to our work in progress; whether we think about our relationship to imagined readers in the writing process, or to ourselves as readers of our own writing, or to the characters and narrators we create in our fictions; whether we think about our relationship as writers to history and memory, or to geography and culture, or to our bodies; reflexivity — the ability to move fluidly back and forth between an inside and an outside view of ourselves and our material — runs throughout as a theme. We have suggested that exploring this reflexivity, both through understanding it conceptually and entering into it experientially through writing practice, can help us to develop as writers.
