Recently, I was fortunate to have Play on Words San Jose present one of my stories, Your Superpower," in their reading series. Play on Words pairs actors with flash fiction: the actors read the stories on stage. The actress Ivette Deltoro read my story, imbuing it with loads of energy.
I had a great time! The night showcased the works of top-notch writers. I loved finding new voices to enjoy. I met up with some friends and met in real life some folks I had only known virtually.
It's always interesting to hear someone else read your work; their interpretation is not always what you expect, and the result is fascinating. I hope they'll post the video; if so, I'll post it here when it's available.
