Bilingual writing and self-translation

Isabel del Rio has written a short essay about writing her latest bilingual book of short stories Zero Negative – Cero negativo in both English and Spanish:
"And so each of the 16 short stories include a version in English and a version in Spanish. I would not call it self-translation, as both versions could and should be considered original stories. In fact, sometimes both versions were written simultaneously."
