“The Construction of Reality” Booklet Report

2017 August 11
by Ian Welsh

One of the stretch goals for my 2016 fundraiser was writing a booklet on “The Construction of Reality” between 30 to 50K words.

As of today the “good” first draft stands at about 31,000 words. Feedback from alpha readers has been positive (albeit they are a self-selecting group, similar to donors.)

I hope to have this out by the end of the year at the latest, and hopefully rather sooner. It still has some writing to go, will need editing, and then conversion to formats other than Word.

When it’s done, codes for free copies will go out to all donors who donated during my 2016 fundraising drive. For others there will be a sample available for free download (I’m currently thinking of making it large—about 40 percent of the entire booklet) and the booklet will be available for purchase for probably $5.

As the title suggests, it will cover how we create the realities in which we live: How those realities come to be, how they are preserved, transmitted, change, and die.

Thanks to everyone who donated to my 2016 fundraising drive for making this possible. I hope you like the end result.

    Exciting! It’s well timed as I’ve been reading Shopenhauer of late. Curious to see your take on reality.

    It proved to be rather harder to write than I expected, though I’m pleased with it. Next time I’ll make it an easier writing project, I think.

    That’s great, Ian. Continued good luck with it. I hope to contribute some day, but I may at least purchase it for five dollars. Best wishes.

    Don’t know what software you have, but I’ve used Calibre (free) to prepare books for publication as Kindle or Nook ebooks. Also to set up paperbacks for publication via CreateSpace.

    Thanks you for all you do. One of the rare places where I think truth is spoken.
