The end of magical thinking

2 years ago, for day 170 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Red and blue flashing lights. Intense, spontaneous and gone in two seconds. They crossed the window of our room, which overlooked to the back patio of the house, and punched us in the eyes. My younger brother must have been six and I eight; him sleeping in the top bunk...


2 years ago, for day 168 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

In the morning my head is constipated. My eyelids are pull down by tiny powerful ghosts. The dryness of the dessert inhabits my mouth and every muscle is weighed down by the unstoppable day ahead. What to concentrate on? The eyes, the mouth, the body or the broken pieces left...

Sasha e Ilana

2 years ago, for day 166 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Con las manos temblando, Sasha toma el micrófono y mira al suelo mientras la pista comienza a sonar. La peluca de cabello negro china brilla intensamente bajo las luces del escenario y todos están mirando sus medias rotas, botines negras y falda corta. Finalmente, Sasha levanta la mirada: "Todos quieren...

Character description: Milo, the handsome.

2 years ago, for day 164 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Milo is approaching 45. As a young person, he always has this theory that had the line between youth and old age. If people lives around 90, then that's half of it. The rest if an approximation to death and a life going downwards. He's not always a cynic or...

Luisa is a comedian. She wen't to improv school and she's so talented she ended up becoming a comedy actress. The weird thing about Luisa is that she doesn't fit the stereotype of someone pursuing comedy (some trauma during childhood, the need to make other people laugh at school as...

Deb and Lucia. Part 1.

2 years ago, for day 159 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

I'm going to do it Deb, I'm telling you I will - said Lucia. Sweety, you know you wont. You've only had sex with Chris and Chris was an asshole and you've run away from anything else close to a sexual relationship with someone. It's ok! I'm not...

Great (or good) endings

2 years ago, for day 158 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

I'm trying to find a good ending and work backwards from then to tell a story, but it's been difficult. So I thought that maybe listing some endings from movies or any type of storytelling that I have enjoyed might help. Here we go (I'm sure I'll forgot many, if...
