Subtext: A Life In Between The Lines

Subtext: A Life Between The Lines

Subtext is any content of a creative work which is not announced explicitly by the characters or author, but is implicit or becomes something understood by the observer of the work. Text is what is on the surface and Subtext lurks underneath in the form of interpretation or insight. It is sometimes called the Latent Text and is often Subtle.

I thought the word Subtext embodied my effort at understanding myself and those around me. As an English Student and, later, an English Teacher, my life has also been devoted to exploring what lies between the author’s words. I fancied myself an archaeologist of text, digging for context and meaning. So, when I decided to publish my diaries as a series, I named it Subtext: A Life Between The Lines.

About carilynn27

Reading and writing and writing about reading are my passion. I've been keeping a journal since I was 14. I also write fiction and poetry. I published my first collection of short stories, "Radiant Darkness" in 2000. I followed that up with my first collection of poetry in 2001 called "Journey without a Map." In 2008, I published "Persephone's Echo" another collection of poetry. Since then I've also published Emotional Espionage, The Way The Story Ended, My Perfect Drug and Out There. I have my BA in English from The Ohio State University at Mansfield and my MA in English Lit from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I also have my Post BA Certificate in Women's Studies. I am the mother of two beautiful children. :-)
