Rumanz rebbieħ tal-ewwel edizzjoni tal-kompetizzjoni letterarja #abbozz U iva, xammejt … tgħidx kemm-il darba xammejna stejjer li ma kinux. U anki dawk li setgħu kienu … meta tara li m'hemmx mnejn tasal, kollox maħdum bizzilla biex ma tasalx, tieqaf. Stop. Daqshekk hi faċli, Mark. ’Qas hi kwistjoni li taqta' qalbek. Kemm tieqaf u timxi lejn xi ħaġa oħra, xi ħaġa li tifhimha int u se tinftiehem. U barra bid-daqq. 1984 u l-iskola li bdiet tard f'Novembru. Dawk it-tnejn. Theuma tal-PE. Ħadd ma jaf xi ġralu Kevin Cacciattolo. Anki Mark ma jafx, snin wara li għeb. U forsi lanqas għandu għala joqgħod ifittex. Għax hemm stejjer li ħadd ma jrid jismagħhom, jew stejjer oħra li anqas ħaqq toqgħod tiffissa fuqhom. Hemm stejjer li nifhmuhom kif irridu jew kif ngħiduhom lilna nfusna. Jew forsi hemm xi ħadd jaf. Jaf l-istorja kollha, mill-bidu sal-aħħar, bl-għeruq, il-qoħob u x-xniexel. Imma anki dik storja li se jibqa' ma jgħidha ħadd tassew.

Mark Vella wrote the book X'Seta' Ġralu lil Kevin Cacciattolo? so that he could call himself an author. But the fact that he has not written anything else after that, is making him doubt he can still hang on to the title. In his defence, he has written some sporadic pieces – among them two short stories published in Leħen il-Malti and a commissioned short story (obviously, handed in on the eve of the deadline) for Awguri, Giovanni Bonello. He has (also sporadic) academic aspirations and he has edited the Ġrajja Maltija anthology – a collection of short stories by Juann Mamo.
