Hey World! Here it is one more blog to you! I hope you have space for one more person’s voice! Me. I’m Orlando Braga Jr. Some fast facts: I’m Brazilian. I live in Cedar Rapids, IA. I’m a writer. I like to be polemic. I love to share the word. Specifically my words. I’m not here to be one more. I’m here to be me; Share myself, my life and my work.
So here I go. That’s my first blog in English, so forgive me if make any mistake. I’m not perfect, and actually I don’t like the idea of perfection. The wrong is sexier and healthier to ourselves. It allow us to risk more and more every time. But anyway, I’m not here to talk about mistakes, failure or anything like that. I just want to make sure that YOU, don’t expect from me to be always right and search line by line to find mistakes. I just share my ideas and my point of view, in the most honest way.
This space is my little area in this vast Internet Blogging Environment, and all I want is to share my work with y’all! I’m a writer. A novelist, to be precise. And throughout the year, I’ll be posting texts and news from my projects. But you can also expect from me to say without any edition my opinions to everything that is happening right now in the World.
Those projects I talked above are my novels. I have some of them “under construction”, but all in Portuguese and at this point, stopped. Along with this blog I will also develop my newest project called True Colors. No, it is not related to the song. And no, this is not definite; the title may change.
True Colors is about life. Is the story of a reporter trying to understand an artist. It is set in Chicago and São Paulo. I love artists, and this book is dedicated to all of them. But if you is an artist, tell me more about you and your art. I’ll be more than happy to listen your story.
And that’s the end of my 1st post. I don’t expect you to like my blog, but I really appreciate comments and new ideas. Please don’t hesitate if you want to talk. Feedback means a lot to me, and I guess to every writer too.
In each post you will know a little bit more about me and my work.
As soon as possible, I’ll be back,
Orlando Braga Jr
