Garie McIntosh considers himself a story-telling communicator and a grammar enthusiast. His career focus is to write novels and educate others on the effective use of English in literary manuscripts.
His objective, via this focus, is to make the elements and tools of his own success available through the educational and grammatical linguistic material that he produces for academic modules available on this website. These elements and tools would also be available through his educational and grammatical editing-service business, McIntoshLinguistics, which aims to formalize its approach through a process-method.
Goal and purpose
Garie’s goal and purpose are to write stories with strong, authentic characters that are defined by strong writing and themes and thereby reinforce the power of communication. He has written and published his first novel, What’s in a Name.
About his craft
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.
