I mainly write poetry and have never felt the need to write a novel but I do love writing – and reading – short stories.
My idea of a good short story is one that doesn’t get bogged down in detail but introduces a single character or even several characters who might stay on in your memory, in a story that holds your attention to the end, where ideally that end is an entertaining surprise.
A working lifetime of writing within the boundaries of available advertising space or time has made writing a short story seem a luxury. As in any successful advertising and all good writing it all begins with a good idea.
I hope you enjoy the stories. Please let me know because there are more.
