About Yuri Csapo

When I was eight years old, I wrote my first short story. I had been reading for a while, but at that moment I realized that what I read, must have been written by someone! Therefore, I could write too, for other people to read, right? So I wrote a western. It was a mistaken identity story, an innocent man sentenced for a crime he didn’t commit. I described his journey trying to prove his innocence, and I gave the little story a happy ending.

After reading it once, I immediately realized that something was missing. “I know! It needs a drawing!” So I drew the bad guy behind bars, with a text bubble that said “Grrrrr!”

But something was still missing... What could it be? I didn’t know, but I knew how to solve it: everything looks better under a layer of red crayon, doesn’t it? “This just makes it hard to read,” complained my audience - my parents, of course.

Anyway, I still write like an eight year old, but hopefully I learned how to create an image with shading, depth, and texture without resorting to the red crayon!

Review by: James Jenkins on Sep. 24, 2016 :
I enjoyed this books message, The last couple of paragraphs don't flow as well as the beginning of the book. From "He had even had a chance to ask his question" the story gets a bit bumpy. It all comes together in the end, but loss of continuity disrupts the final delivery.

Mr. Csapo had me from the first paragraph and didn't disappoint with the last. I'll admit it: it didn't turn out at all as I'd envisioned. And *that* is is what story-telling is supposed to be.

Read this. It'll either give you something to think about or cause you to scream "Blasphemy!" but it will not leave you feeling incomplete.
