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!

This is not science fiction (current categorization). It someplace between weird fiction and horror story.

This scares me, but I guess that was the point.
