Week 5: Revisions, revisions, the bane of my existence.
Want some unsolicited advise? Never translate yourself.
In non coderSpeak news, I chose something to revise for next week. It’s going to be painful!
Week 3: Barely an hour had passed since I finished a flash piece, when I said “I think I don’t hate this one.”
That’s a victory, right?
Week 2: Wrote a kind of prose poem in Spanish. It’s… something.
I’ve never consider myself bilingual, but here I am: rediscovering words can fail me in two languages.
Week 1: Do deleting a bunch of bad words count? I tried to finish a piece of SF flash fiction and discovered I ended up with less words than at the beginning of the week.
Sometimes writing is deleting.
What I Write
Excerpt from “Where Water Joins” (Clarkesworld, November 2016)
|What I Write||
I write weird, short stuff –from Lovecraftian horror to slipstream– in unusual or experimental narrative styles.
My short stories have been featured in magazines like Clarkesworld and anthologies like the World Fantasy Award winning She Walks in Shadows.
