"First, it is the way I write these short short pieces, compressing all my creative energies into a very small time period, perhaps only 20 minutes of intense activity. And then I feel that the energy of the story itself is compressed, becoming highly dense. When particles are compressed they take up less space but they still vibrate, bashing into each other more for the lack of freedom, creating sparks." -- Tania Hershman
