About the website

I write novels, short stories, poems, articles, essays and non-fiction.

I do not follow, or subscribe to, the mainstream narrative. Since 2020 I have found out so much and I can no longer view the world the same way. Needless to say my writing, quite compromised, has turned to dystopia and science fiction. I am not posting on social media, only here, and the narrative may or may not be to your liking. To hint at what I am saying here, it's an anagram of words: hoax - coronavirus  - climate change. If you can deal with that then we may be starting on the same page. Beware of Cyber Polygon, we may have limited time or ability to connect. However, most of the content was written in the old normal. I was never a climate sceptic until 2020 when they started to push the sustainable thing along with the lockdowns. I was an activist once, how silly I feel now: I thought I was Greta

This website is because I don't see much future in publishing. Please see this: here

See my work for free in the reading section. This is not an author selling stuff website. I feel like publishing has had it. The market is flooded. However, I like to write so this is a me to you arrangement if you happen to like the writing on this website for free.

I have a terrible habit of deleting my websites and social media. However, I am resolving to not delete this version created in May 2021. Some of this content was on my personal website from 1998 onwards, on Blogger and on old versions of JustinTuijl.com. Some content has also been in books and on other websites. This website has become an amalgamation of my websites focusing on the writing parts taken from previous personal websites.

You may not find out much about Justin Tuijl the person on here. That might be reserved for a free members only section. We are being watched. Friends and family know who I am, where I come from, where I am now and with whom, the internet doesn't need to know! And they do try to know. Who? The technocrats. I digress. Moving on...

The "asides" section is for more controversial subjects, a blog.

I'm also a webdesigner. This website is designed to be basic with no silly bells and whistles. It uses WordPress but is a hand coded hybrid, and I do not use your data. I'd recommend you have security plugins and use Firefox or Brave Browser. I might re-code this website in HTML as I don't trust WordPress and the MySQL database it uses.
