This page links to my short stories, organized by year.  I am encouraged that Ray Bradbury wrote one story a week and it only took him ten years to really get the hang of it.  I'm writing one story every two weeks.  That takes me about an hour a day, on average.  I started writing in 2012.  So by my calculations, you can start reading the good stuff in 2031.

WARNING: Any of the following stories may contain strong language, sexual situations, graphic violence, gross inaccuracies, obvious errors, snarkiness, robots versus kung fu, the explosive demolition of a stone golem, aliens, scary monsters, clowns, and Frank Zappa.  Some stories may not be unread.  /YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED


Short stories written in 2012


These first 10 stories are based on ideas given to my by my friends.  The ideas could be a single word, an image, or up to a paragraph of text.  Point being, writing on a random topic is a good way to learn to write to any old topic.  I list a link to the story, the idea as given to me (or shortened in a few cases, the genre I would put the story in, and the person who gave me the idea, to whom the story is dedicated.


2 - Lets Roll guy not on plane - Action - for Brent

 - Nighthawks - Horror - for Cindy

 - Snakes on a Train - Drama - for Shadow


1  - No ideas and no long term memory - Sci-Fi (meditation on the drake equation) - for Carl and Ali

 - No matter what I do I look like an a**hole - Drama - for Mike and Christine 


20 - Interstellar Cosmonaut - Sci-Fi - for Noah


13 - Wumpits - Sci-Fi-Fantasy - for Harry


22 - Stressed out girl at work - Psychological Drama - for Zvi


23 - A bunch of old people talking - the gathering - please no axes. - for Danelle

 - Ex-con gets a smartphone - Sci-Fi - for Don


I am currently writing ten of my own short stories, which I'll post all at once before the end of the year, as they have basically all merged into one big story.  When I'm done with that I'll probably start in on stories for friends again, because that was a lot of fun, too.
