I’m planning to create my cuento, my relato, my short story on studying abroad in separate countries from your best friend and life partner.
I’ve written a short story in English once before about a couple who decided to go to the same college but having chosen not to live together the first year.
This new short story will be similar in terms of having a conflict with the same two people. Except this time, it’s a couple of years down the road and their in a new stage of their life together, but apart.
It’s meant to be a drama, a romance.
It will be interesting to see the style of the writing, the character development, the message, and mood it offers others, especially because it will be written in Spanish.
Vamos a ver.
p.s. Today we brainstormed more in depth about the stories we want to create for our literature class. Looking forward to producing a story in Spanish about my life with Joseph– a story and life that I’m proud of. It will very much be realistic fiction: a short story about real people with real problems in what seems to be two different worlds. Of course, I will change certain aspects of the plot to make the story more appealing and surprising. Can’t wait to share this piece of work with you by the end of the semester!
