This section is divided and sorted by story length. I currently have stories between 15 to 16,000+ words. Real publishers have roughly defined categories for story size and lacking agreement between them on what each category covers, I start this section by defining what ranges I use. Click on the first item in this menu to review my story range table.
I like surprises in my fiction so expect to find them in mine. I create stories about people; their relationships and challenges; fictional yes, but these are meant to be emotionally surprising explorations of what life can throw at us.
This section is newer and the collection is growing so I hope you’ll check back or follow my blog to hear about new additions as they appear. So far, most are human drama, but there are a couple of Hard Science Fiction essays and one new Historical Fiction.
You’ll find that I love to let my characters tell their own stories in conversations. More often than not, they tell a better story than a narrator ever could. I also love to take readers inside my character’s minds and thoughts to bring my readers even closer to the story.
Most are short, but now, longer pieces are beginning to accumulate.
There is also a special section for a weekly challenge project that confines authors to telling whole stories in exactly 99 words. These are unique stories that take readers only 30 seconds – unless you’re given to sitting back after reading one just to think about it. You might want to budget some time for this to happen too.
Thanks for stopping by. Mouse over the FICTION menu and pick a story length to see the index for that section and let’s get you set up with a story.
