Creative Writing

I love to write because:

► I can express
► I get to learn
► It helps me to see clearly
► It makes me feel good
► It makes it easier to remember

I began writing when I was a child. At school, teachers would often ask me to read my essays to the class after being reviewed. I was once chosen as the school’s candidate for a national writing contest that was sponsored by Coca-Cola.

Encouraged by some friends and teachers, I entered several contests during my adolescence. At age 17, I won a regional competition that had been organized to promote young talents.

As an adult, I kept writing. There has been fiction, non-fiction, and fictional reality. I usually write short stories, essays, and poetry.

From 2003 to 2010, I was involved in several musical projects. Besides doing vocals and/or playing guitar, I wrote songs for all of them: Horror Dementia, Conde Orlok, Vertigen, Go Ape, and LSD Ravens.

Although I mostly write for myself, I’ve published part of my work at times. I’ve used several digital platforms: DeadJournal, LiveJournal, Blogger, WordPress, etc.

I used to share my words at times on social media: Fotolog, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram…

Although I ended up deleting most of my work from the Internet, I still keep most of the stuff that I’ve written. These are some of the collections I’ve authored:

► A Hanging Garden
► Crucified Dreams
► Dreams
► Innocence
► Toni Sees the World
► Vertigen

In recent years, I’ve written the epilogue for Punt i Coma (Masferrer, Gemma. Barcelona: Editorial Omicron, 2012). Additionally, Tablet Magazine has published me.

Since 2016, I’ve been writing this blog. Here, I touch on several topics about life and work, including:

► Barcelona & Catalonia
► Chicago & the U.S.
► Ethnicities & Genealogy
► Geography
► Languages & Communication
► Personal & Business Relations
► Smoking Cessation
► Technology
► Vegetarianism

Some of this blog’s entries are also available on LinkedIn.
