“Make haste to live.
Oh god, yes.
Live, and write, with great haste.”
- Ray Bradbury
Me: Elyssa Tappero – cruel writer, voracious reader, experienced cat whisperer, queer asexual. Oozes sarcasm like a colander leaks water. Kills characters like it’s going out of style.
My writing: I dabble in different writing themes and styles but my primary focus is something along the lines of cross-genre character-based multi-narrative introspective episodic flash fiction. That’s fancy mumbo-jumbo for “I write short fiction involving the same two characters in different settings and genres.” I just liked all the kooky words. I also write a lot of haiku/tanka on various subjects, and sometimes vomit out unbroken sentences that make no sense at all. Recently I’ve started focusing a lot on queer and asexual topics as well.
My other half: My wonderful girlfriend just happens to be an incredible writer and poet, so you should probably check out her page as well. I can’t promise her entries are as obsessively organized as mine, though.
