Bolaño’s Advice

Reading around I’ve found Consejos sobre el arte de escribir cuentos by Roberto Bolaño at La Luna de Pierrot. They’re not as helpful as some other tips I’ve read before but they sure are funny.

This is a good time to say that I write both in English and Spanish. Actually, I’ve never written poetry in English because it flows out of me in Spanish. That’s not what happens with short stories that I usually write in English. Anyway, don’t be surprised to find some posts in Spanish.

Meanwhile I’ll keep reading. That is what Bolaño pretty much argues: if you want to write, read a lot.
