When you see the fiction of reality.

5 days ago, for day 136 by Ivette Yanez Soria πŸ’Ž

I just finished reading one of the essays from Zadie Smith's book "Feel free". In it, she discusses the work of JG Ballard. I have to say, I was not familiar with this writer or his work, and thanks to Smith's discussion I feel intrigued and eager to read one...

Self-diagnosed. Short story (unfinished).

-Hi, so, tell me, what bring you here? I mean, to therapy -said Lila in a soft-spoken and welcoming way accompanied by her usual hand movements. -Well -Lucio stopped for about 20 seconds, then lift up her gaze towards the doctor and continued -I have extreme social anxiety. I deal...

Her cartilage was broken. For months she had withstand the acute pain on the front and back of her knee, but the gravity of it during her last run, especially as went up and crossed the bridge near her house, had been worst than the monthly PMS torture. At just...

Not mother's day

Alicia was watching Cheers on TV. Ted Danson was a hottie, rude as F, but a hottie. It was 12pm but she was still wearing her pjs and eating a bowl of fruit and chocolate chips cookies. The cat run quickly towards her and she knew something had parked outside...

Mom's last second

A heart attack knocked my mother down in the middle of a hospital waiting room, that's what they say. I don't like to think of that specific moment. I don't because what if she felt utterly alone, scared and helpless? Her death was immediate, they say too, a fulminant attack....

60 days streak

2 weeks ago, for day 122 by Ivette Yanez Soria πŸ’Ž

Today I hit the 60 days streak on Write Together. I'm quite impressed about it not because of the feat itself, but because discipline (as I have mentioned in other posts) is my Achille's heel. I was an excellent student, and I forced myself to study for hours (it hurt),...

I was never an auditive person. I wrote about that in an earlier post, and also about how in recent years that has changed thanks to my new habit of listening to podcast, which started in early 2016. Three years ago. Well, it was only a year ago, maybe a...

Meet-cute. Part 2.

None of them remembers how the three of them passed fro being on the middle of the street to be sitting in Alex's car, the driver, and heading to the nearest pet hospital. Suddenly they were all ver aware of occupying this rectangular tiny space while in motion, and where...

"Can others smell my dog's farts?" This was the main thing going though Francisco's mind when his dog loose his leash and ran across the park. There were fences in this area, but his dog was pretty big and anyone opening the small gate would not be able to stop...
