I enjoy writing short stories because of the challenge in completing a full-fledged adventure in as few pages as possible. Short stories force the writer to chose words very carefully to convey the meaning and mood they are trying to convey, and the satisfaction in doing so is tremendous. Writing short stories is a different art than writing a full-length novel. You have to achieve character development, plot development, and resolution within 10,000 words or less – sometimes as little as 1500 words. I hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as I enjoyed writing them.
