Ed Pilolla—don’t you just love what that last name does to the tongue? Go on, say it aloud *waits.....* it feels wicked, isn’t it? Sorry for the tangent, I have a thing for words… Well, after reading an excerpt from AlmaMia Cienfuegos, the man with the last name that does things to the tongue, said, “I’m in a different land as I read this, in an intimate world of women.”
Those words stayed with me for a long time. The imagery they evoked came out to play as I was writing The Strong Women in AlmaMia Cienfuegos’ Life, my guest post at Green Witch with Sprinkles. Don’t laugh at me, but can you believe that I had no idea AlmaMia’s world was a small jungle of females? I mean, there are some men, two are even alive! but Ed is right, the short story takes the reader to a world of very strong women.
Finding this out through someone else was surprising; it left me chuckling, too. Now I’m wondering what else has sneaked into my fiction without me noticing…What do you do when your work surprises you? How do you feel when someone’s art takes you to places you didn’t expect?
