Hi, Eric (época do fim) here. Let me introduce you to Chloe Persons, a character and Heteronym I created for my undergraduate thesis film proposal at NYU (which was not, by the by, greenlit (c'est la vie, c'est la guerre, c'est l'amour)).
Anyway, Chloe is a 22 year old writer attending NYU's creative writing program, (though she'd be 24 now, in 2012), of Hawaiian and Portuguese descent, and a heteronym. This, some of you might be rightfully thinking, begs the question: what is a heteronym? And also, who are you and what are you doing here? And I am glad that you hypothetically ask.
A Heteronym is a special variety of both literary character and pseudonym, an assumed name whom a writer also creates a character, history, and most importantly and challengingly, a unique style for. This can create several layers of story on top of the obvious, including heteronyms writing critique for, having correspondence with, or even translating the works of other heteronyms that their creator or other creators have made, or even directly with their creator. The inventor, master and lead pioneer of this style was the 20th century Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa (one of my personal favorites, or as I like to say in a joke which only amuses other heavily read Portuguese speakers "several of my favorite poets"). Look into him for more elucidation on this whole idea. I think they have great potential for a community such as ours.
Now, skipping over "Who are you?", which I already answered at the beginning, and moving on to what I'm doing here, what it is that I'm doing here is this: Introducing the concept, and one of my own Heteronyms, to contextualize the four stories of Chloe's I'm about to post as other records: 'GRANDE', 'BLACK BOX', '100', and 'Advertisement #1', which I originally wrote a few years ago, and signed and dated with Chloe's name and reality in mind. Why do this? well, it seemed easier then the confusing feat of posting, without context, original records with someone else's name and a different style than my own. Unlike my own native style, Chloe is a short form master, her natural mode being flash fiction. I'd like to start writing in her voice again, and get to see through that different mind's eye I made for her way back when. So there you go. Here's an illo of her from back in the day, feel free to remix at will.
