    • Thanks. I'm not that great with short stories. I'm more of a novel kind of guy, but I like to experiment a lot, and short stories are easier to mess around with, so my stories are quite different from one another. I'll try to write one per week, so you might want to stick around. Maybe you'll find something else that you'll enjoy.

  1. 'One' is beautifully written, and I'm seriously considering buying a copy of 'A Sad, Sad Symphony'. Don't be so hard on yourself; your writing is beautiful.


    • Thank you. I've never thought about "One" as being beautifully written. I like the idea behind it, because, of course, I wrote it, but it was just too fast and easy to write for me to understand what I was doing. If you read my other stories, you'd probably noticed that I play around a lot. Different styles, different tones. So "A Sad, Sad Symphony" is different, even though it's still about an artist.


  2. Nice job on these, Cristian! I found "Memento Mori" very evocative and thought-provoking! "One" and "Crossroads" are also nice little one-offs.


  3. Oooh free stuff =) It's weird that some people I know find it weird that I actually like short stories. Weird, right? Anyways, will be reading Memento Mori later. Thanks in advance!


  4. I just finished thoroughly enjoying your superlative short story Mr. Nobody. Not too long. Not too sassy. Very good! I have an additional thought, however, which is ~ the other question to ask the most beautiful woman in the world is, of course: “What’s your phone number?”
