Welcome to the short stories section of this nook. Here the works will range from 500-5000 words. if you are looking for something shorter, try the Microfiction, or Six-Sentence Stories pages.
After much consideration, I am going to continue posting my six sentence stories weekly, but my short stories and micro fiction are going to move to a biweekly schedule or the rest of the year so I can accommodate other projects. I finished my first novel last year, and would like to focus on getting … Continue reading A Work of Fiction
This one will speak to anyone who has ever tried to make friends with another human being as an adult.

You … Continue reading My Family Vacation
I am sure there are going to be people from both sides of this fence, but this one tackles the suggestion box at the workplace, and the lack of both implementation of ideas, and appreciation for the ideas that are implemented that goes with it. Robbie had once seen a place where the feedback box … Continue reading A Miracle on the 34th Floor
Ok, so I want to say this is happy, but I think that would be giving false expectations. Maybe sappy would be better, a little cliche Christmas story.
