Is it too late for me to add my two cents (maybe more like half a cent) about shopping, my mother, and the pandemic? I hope not. Please enjoy my little essay on Medium. Happy Lunar New Year!
Thanks to Marshal Zeringue for his insightful questions!
Thanks to CrimeReads for featuring an essay on my journey to writing Skin Deep.
One of my greatest thrills as a college student was when I was let into the intermediate-level creative writing workshop. You couldn’t just sign up and walk in—you had to submit a short story good enough for the professor to deem you worthy. That first day, I sat around the rectangular table with my future colleagues and was handed a set of rules for the class. It’s been almost thirty years since I laid eyes on this single xeroxed sheet, but I can still remember one of them: You will not write stories about serial murderers, or even regular murderers.CrimeReads
