I am Zacharya and this is my story in the writing.
I have been writing for years, since I can remember.
My journey took me from science fiction experiments to short stories until I finally settled on the miniature form, which has allowed me the greatest freedom of expression and highest fit with who I am inside.
My writings can be described as outbursts of energy and an exercise in capturing the essence of an emotion. There are few, vaguely defined characters. There is a plot and a narrative, though not in the strict sense. But there is a search – for answers, as you – the reader – see yourself morph into different entities as you read.
My teacher used to say that my works are at times dark and sinister, not because that was who I am but because I was looking for answers outside of who (or what) I am. He also used to say that some forces appear horrific simply because they are non-human and are thus alien to us.
Whoever I am in the material world, I took upon myself the mission to produce pure writing, drawing from a growing pool of life experiences as inspiration. I wanted to test the limits of my own expression, how much I can twist and bend language before it breaks, how much meaning I can condense into ever fewer words.
I conducted an experiment, to find out what would happen if a person were left to grow on their own, with as few limits imposed on their self-expression as possible. It can only be there, I thought, where an exception could become Exceptional. Whether or not there is any value to the final result, it is only for you to decide.
If I have to summarize my works in a word, I would call them human. Beyond anything, it is human to search, it is human to doubt, it is human to be lost.
I welcome you to my world.
