Garie shares details of his background and his skills as a fiction writer, through which he has developed teaching and educational methods and editing products to help other writers and editors. Garie uses his storytelling skills as a form of communication and his enthusiasm for grammar as a strategy for continuing education.
What Garie McIntosh does
Garie considers that storytelling is analogous to communication. He writes stories with strong, authentic characters that are defined by strong writing and themes and thereby reinforce the power of communication.
Having written and published his first novel, What’s in a Name, Garie facilitates a process-method as an editing solution to enable writers and editors to meet traditional publishing standards.
Since 2016, Garie has been working to further develop himself as a fiction writer while working on his English grammatical and linguistic pursuits. He makes the elements and tools of his own success available via this website.
Publication Garie’s first novel of a trilogy
The 2021 version of the novel, coming at the end of July, will form a series of inter-related novels in a thematic trilogy called The Barred-spiral Trilogy.
A fictional take about the destructive power of silence, What’s in a Name reinforces, according to something Iyanla Vanzant once said, that “the name of a man is a soul and a sword.”
Enjoy communication through storytelling
Garie strives to use grammar, diction and the gamut of literary devices to make his writing compelling. These inexorable tools of literary fiction underpin the subjects and themes he feels are important.
Garie is drawn to telling stories that are social allegories. He uses this theme to explore the human condition, delve into the psyche and explore why we are the way we are and do the things we do. Letting go is also a prominent theme.
Garie writes postmodernist fiction, using its fractured or nonlinear prose to deeply explore his characters. His narratives take his readers along the path of a character-story structure or an idea-story structure.
Garie makes the elements and tools of his own success available through his teaching and educational methods (pedagogy/service) and his editing products (business/products) to help writers and editors develop manuscripts that meet traditional publishing standards.
