Christine Reilly’s Comments

“Cities for Hands” took four years to write.  It was written out of order.

“Vernal Equinox and Autumnal Equinox” is based on a semiautobiographical true story. Not counting activity that may be illegal.

“Coping” is entirely fiction.

“March 11, 2011” was inspired by a YouTube video. It is dedicated to the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

I write entirely on instinct. I write long-hand, often on the G train or Long Island Railroad. I have three alternating muses, and two are imaginary.
