Let the Robot Write! / Lăsați robotul să scrie!

I completely forgot I've been sitting on the translation of my award-winning short story Lăsați robotul să scrie! (Let the Robot Write!) for a few years now and I thought I might as well publish it now. It's a speculative story about a robot that writes fiction and is heavily based on my experience in the English publishing world. You can read it on my website in English: https://www.andradacoos.c Read more of this blog post »

“E wabi‑sabi, frumusețea lucrurilor trecătoare, a spus Sensei. Florile de cireș sunt frumoase, dar în același timp sunt trecătoare. Suntem fericiți că le vedem, dar în același timp e o fericire puțin
tristă pentru că suntem conștienți că ele vor dispărea în curând.”
Andrada Cooș, Frumusețea lucrurilor trecătoare

si come rota ch'igualmente e mossa,
l'amor che move: i sole e l'altre stelle
