About Me

A bit crazy. A bit unsatisfied. Universally inquisitive and heartbreakingly shy. English major thinking of software engineering.

Why do you write?

I write because I'm curious. I write to relieve tension. I write because I don't understand the world.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Neil Gaiman fuses literary elements with mainstream elements in his fantasy novels that really work for that genre. I like Raymond Carver- a master of the contemporary short story. This Is How You Lose Her and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz I can spend a lifetime imitating (such a kickass voice). Mike Chabon- one of if not my most favorite prose stylist. I hope I can say something as relevant as Ralph Ellison's Battle Royale.

thank you Tiffany. Oh man, that is unreal, your mother losing 4 friends IN ONE YEAR to it. So awful, scary.. so sad.

Thank you for your kind and pereceptive reaction to "Weightless" and for what it's worth, you're right, I just let the names and all those unitentional rhymes carry parts of the piece.

Thanks, Tiffany for your generous comments on "Modern Warfare"

Meg Pokrass – May 01, 2010

Aw. Thank you so much. I hate MILFS and COUGARS (the terms) they make me ill. I could have gone hard hitting, but sometimes i think humor gets to it better, at least for me. Yep. Same.

So glad you liked "Quitting," Tiffany. Thanks for the star!

Plot or beautiful, poetic prose? I would have to go with plot, not that prose isn't important. I think the story is universal, and more easy to recognize. People will forgive a sloppy style, but they won't forgive a mismanaged plot (or at least I won't).
