About My Site

Welcome to my story blog.  You should see menus for my three free-to-read projects. If you’re using a small phone screen, you will see just a single [ MENU ] button to scroll through the whole list.

DOT Stories are my original project. The acronym stands for “Dime of Time”. There are just over 70 stories and each follow these guidelines:
– – > 2000 words or less to stay within a 10 minute (DOT) read for most readers
– – > Non-fiction and autobiographical. There may be some fun hyperbole, but these stories actually happened to me.
– – > Entertaining or moving somehow with no boring data dumps
– – > Written in first person and kind of rowdy, like two friends talking and laughing over drinks
– – > Clean with almost no adult language or scenes, this is a family-friendly site.
– – > As visual as I can make them.

Fiction and Non is my newest effort and these are exactly what you would expect by the title. This menu is subdivided by type and essay length.

Coffee Shares are a running weekly essays that were created to share personal updates with a small but open group of friends. These essays have a tone of sitting back and catching up with a good friend and often short conversations result.  Over the weeks we get to know each other as we laugh and sometimes grieve together.  For some of us, these essays are as close as we get to a diary or journal.

Each story has a link near the bottom that will bring you back to my main page.

There is also a Table of Contents link at the top-right so you can always get back easily. I’m thrilled that you stopped by and hope to deliver some great reading.  Life really can be a great adventure if you keep your eyes open for it.

  1. I hopped over to your blog after reading your comments about Deb’s story on Marsha’s blog. I thought what you said was very interesting and, hopefully, helpful (and said in a very kind way). Anyway, like Deb, I’ve recently started to write short stories – some of which I share on my blog – so I’m very interested in learning more about the craft. I look forward to following your blog and reading your stories.

    1. Hi Janis, and your comment just identified you as a writer I’d like to know.
      Thanks for visiting my site.
      I’ve tried to make it accessible as a place to find fun stuff I’ve written.
      I’ll be around to return the favor soon.
