As we start a new year I found myself in a very awkward position. Shortly after a year of filling the web with my art and my thoughts, my comments and my critiques I’m sure to say that not much has been achieved.
I originally started this as a way of showing my work to possible editors and people responsible for committing your work to the printed page. Regarding that; it has failed.
Also, because it started as an outlet back when I was living in the states it meant that it was to be written in English (because of my target for readership). As I moved I was shifting towards Spanish, because now most of the people who happen to read this don’t understand a word in English.
I made a promise to translate as much as I could to keep both sides happy. To my surprise it seems like neither of them are actually interested in what I might have to say nor show.
It looks to me that it has become a masturbatory exercise for my devastated ego.
Well then, if that is the case I will let everybody know in this simple way that from now on I won’t care about people anymore. That means that I will post things as they come to my head, at my very whim I will populate this with things in Spanish as well as in English. If you don’t understand you are welcome to use the google translator or whatever way you find useful to do it.
I still hope to find someone that believes in me enough as to offer me a book deal or some real work. The thing is this: I want to get published, NOT self-published. Simple.
I know it might not be the wisest thing to do to make such statements here, but it is what it is. And while the pages are pilling up, so are the frustrations. Sorry to put it this way.
Now, some things I already have translated will be re-posted, but things like the pages I made for the blog’s 1st birthday won’t. From now on things will come as I see fit. If you really don’t like the way things are you are welcome to leave your comment about it and maybe I can start to do something about it. As long as the people stay in silence things won’t change.
Sorry again for any inconvenience it might cause you.
I hope you will stick around though.
