Printre case cenuşii, se strecoară şoapte murdare, iar printre şoapte, pluteşte o umbră. Împreună, par a zămisli ceva. Nu e nimeni în jur, îi vede doar luna; dar luna e singură pe cer; e palidă, e rece şi aminteşte mai mult de o prinţesă otrăvită decât de o regină a nopţii.

Here’s a brief essay I wrote for. It’s a great series.


The Illusion


Probably the most powerful epiphany I’ve experienced in learning to write has to do with the art of observed detail: what level of description is necessary to paint the picture.
