Dear Alvaro,

Excellent story, well written. I don’t understand one thing. In your profile you wrote “aspiring writer.” Isn’t a writer someone who writes? You, for example? You can take the word “aspiring” out. That word means that you couldn’t quite reach the medium (pardon the pun) on which to write: pen, paper, computer. Since you obviously did, you obviously are — an actual writer now, no longer aspiring. 🤔🤗😀
