Thoughts from a Writer: Fear

on writing and other arts,, Short Fiction

I haven’t written fiction in a while. Not because I’m not interested, but my discipline had long ago went on sabbatical and never returned. Writing requires discipline. Inspiration helps, but inspiration alone leads to unfinished stories and ramblings. Like any serious endeavor or pursuit, the work must be done. Every writer has their own method and time of day to write. For me, it’s the early morning—that moment when I should still be asleep, when it’s dark outside. I believe it helps because I can pull from my dream state, or at least I tell myself that, and it works.


The Unveiling of (No So) Undercover Mexican Girl


My latest video is a short, experimental collage of empty streets, old buildings, and shaky, unfocused, close-up shots of (Not So) Undercover Mexican Girl. Set to the eerie pop/folk music of Jovenes y Sexys, the piece invites the viewer into the writer’s journey of creativity and discovery. Visit her at (Not So) Undercover Mexican Girl.
