Writing Interests

Aesthetic

  • High brow, low brow, mid brow, unibrow (mostly mid to uni)
  • Irony, both redemptive and humorous (don’t mind some dead irony now and again)
  • Humor (dark, sarcasm, satire, slapstick, dry)
  • Diversity (can’t be all white people…)
  • Spiritualism (dashes of religion)
  • Family issues (dysfunctional only!)
  • Latino, Hispanic, Spanish influences (whatever it is we mutts are called)
  • Parenthetical references (though I rarely use them in my writing)
