First Person, Present Continuous Tense

First, an advertisement for myself – and no apology to Norman Mailer for his essay collection, ‘Advertisements for Myself’ – for my own reasons.

The fact: I’ve finished writing a novel. For five years, I’ve been at its craft and creativity. But it began as a long-form short story of 11,000+ words. I wrote it and let it gestate in my folder. Then the grapevine of Ajit Baral and Shushma Joshi messaged that they were looking for short stories from Nepali writers writing in English (NWWIE) for an anthology commissioned by Rupa of India. ‘Do you have any?’ they asked. ‘I sure have,’ I said, and emailed my masterpiece to these consulting editors. ‘Oho, Peter Dai!’ Ajit wrote back: ‘It’s too long!’ ‘How short do you want?’ ‘Cut it in half.’ So I trimmed the original to some 5,500 words, and the bonsai version was published in “New Nepal: New Voices.” My short story is called ‘Dark Kathmandu Sideways.’
