Desde adentro, escrituras del confinamiento

BearPress.jpgEstoy muy contento de anunciarles que por primera vez un cuento corto que escribí en inglés ha sido incluido en una antología de una editorial británica <http://bearpress.uk/>. Es una consecuencia indirecta del curso MOOC <https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/start-writing-fiction> de la Open University que tomé hace dos años. Aprovecho para agradecer de nuevo a Bridget Scrannage por haberme invitado a proponer un cuento al editor. Lo pueden conseguir en <https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1999884256>.

From inside, Writings from Lockdown

I'm very happy to announce that for the first time a short story I wrote in English has been included in an anthology of a British publisher <http://bearpress.uk/>. It's a spin-off of the MOOC course <https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/start-writing-fiction> from the Open University that I took two years ago. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bridget Scrannage again for inviting me to submit a story to the editor. You can get it at <https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1999884256>.

Emotional shock

NV-IMP1006.jpgThe nurse just left saying the doctor will come soon. I don't know what I'm doing here. In my camera there are photos of a pub called 'Virgins and Castle'.

I was taking pictures in Kenilworth for a magazine who asked for images of old pubs. As in that place there was one opened in 1563, I went through the streets following the path I had traveled years ago to find, in that pub, the one that is now my wife.

If there were at pictures of well-known people in my camera or a phone number to call and ask for help.

- 'Mr. Dudley, how do you feel today,' the tall man told me.

- 'Well, thank you, what happened?,' I asked.

- You have suffered an accident, you've received a strong physical and emotional shock that has left you without memory.

- Whoa, who hurt me?

- The Bréxit.

- What's that?
