Short Fiction: 1000 – 6000 Word Story Index

This range of story length should take the average reader anywhere from 3 minutes to 20 minutes to read.

They are ordered from newest to oldest as suggested by the date (YYMMDD) code preceding each title. Each listing includes an inspiration source code. GAW = me. N2W = KL Caley’s weekly #photowrite project where she provides a photo and authors write the story behind the photo. The word count is also included so you can discern about how much time is needed to read the story. Your mileage will vary, but divide this number by 300 and you’ll have a close estimate for the number of minutes needed.

I hope you’ll explore the list.  Each link will take you straight to the story and, I hope they leave you thinking, laughing or just plain entertained.
