I will always remember the day my name was finally spelled out in English.
A few years ago I was a bit too young to read or write in my native Spanish, so I had to get a new passport.
But when I was 11, I was sent a copy of the first English translation of Dante’s Inferno.
I looked at it and said, “Wow, I love this book.
What is it?”
It was a little bit of a shock, but it’s a great place to start.
A little bit later, I moved to Barcelona, and I remember thinking, “This is fantastic!”
It’s really important for me to make my own identity.
I like to be unique.
I’ve got to be myself.
It’s also important to make sure I’m getting the right information and understanding, because sometimes, as an Englishman, you don’t really know what you’re missing out on.
I had an idea that I wanted to start an organisation for the next generation of creative people.
When I was working on a novel in my late 20s, I got a letter from a young writer in the UK.
She was a poet and was trying to figure out what she wanted to do.
I asked her how she thought about it, and she said, “[English] literature and poetry is my thing.
I think the future of English literature is going to be through the creative arts.”
That was when I knew I was onto something.
It was about 30 years ago, and it was a real turning point for me.
I went on to write three books, and now I’m a writer myself.
I love writing.
When you’re writing, you’re constantly on the move.
And that’s where my creative career is.
I have been doing it for over a decade, and have been writing for more than 40 years.
So, it’s been a great career for me, because I’m still here.
I am always learning new things, and sometimes, I get lucky.
I try to write as many novels as I can, and there are always new things coming my way.
I find it very exciting to be a part of a community, and to share the creative process.
It is very challenging to work on the creative side of things.
But I like the challenge of it, I enjoy it.
