Very Short Story
I Write Short Fiction
I rarely exceed 6,000 words in a story. I found it is easier than long fiction in that I can write a short story or a bit of fluff a lot quicker. Some of my stories may end up longer. But so far, short is best.
Exploring Ideas
New ideas are generated here under Scribbles, and sometimes I’ll hear something funny, which ends up as a Conversation. Other times, I will just share an idea. Most of my short storiesvery short stories, and novellas can be found under My Craft.
