Why Write?

When I write articles or opeds is usually because I want to contribute to an ongoing conversation or debate, but fiction is a complete other animal. I honestly don't know what is it that compels me to write fiction. It is an exhilarating but often frustrating process that many times has made me question my writing skills.

What do you write?

Mostly short stories. Lately I've developed an interest in magical realism and science fiction, so I'm experimenting with those genres right now.


I am originally from San Juan, PR and currently living in Germantown, MD. I've written several articles for non profit websites, and about a year ago I started trying my hand at writing fiction.
