Literally Reruns, Short Fiction

Literally Reruns – Cat Eyes by Yashar Seyedbagheri

You never know which new writer will hit the site in a big way until a little time goes by. Often we get one timers whose contributions are appreciated, yet leave us pining for more. And there are the occasionals who submit every season or so, and we always welcome their return. Then you get prolific persons such as Mir Yashar Seyedbagheri. He hit the Literally Stories ground running and hasn’t looked back since. Although there will be a definitive count in a few months, Yash has already surpassed twenty posts alone this year of 2021, and today we invite you to look back at his first LS story from 2020.

Q: Your writing is highly introspective. Do you find it therapeutic or does it raise even more questions about life than you had at the beginning?

Q: Much of your writing is centered on themes of isolation and relationships. It is so personal that I wonder if you experience any pushback from people that are close to you from your writing?

Yash’s Response:

My writing is something I find immensely therapeutic. Just being able to dissect human behaviors and desires, even without clear-cut answers, is its own salve. As to the themes, I have never experienced any pushback at all and have been quite lucky to have many supporters close to me! Of course, some have jokingly lamented the dark nature of the stories, deeming them “depressing” or “fucking depressing,” but I can’t argue!

  1. Hi Leila,
    I think it was very fitting to pick Yash’s first story for us.
    He has written quality from day one!

    Yash – Great to see you still around and thanks for all your involvement.
