There are 30,000 days in your life. When I was 24, I realized I’m almost 9,000 days down. There are no warm-ups, no practice rounds, no reset buttons. Your biggest risk isn’t failing, it’s getting too comfortable. Every day, we’re writing a few more words of a story. I wanted my story to be an adventure and that’s made all the difference.

This is the landing page for all of the pieces that are itty bitty enough to be described as short.
Under the “Short Stories” tab, you will find another list (yay for more tabs) of some of the short stories I have written. Each individual tab has a small preface that includes a bit of history and context, along with an academic reflection that is followed by the selected piece.
Whenever I am just free writing scenes outside of an actual novel, I call them “shorts.” This just means they are a separate scene or a start to something that I have yet to actually dedicate my full attention to. I usually end up with a short when I have been working on a project for a very long time and I am bored of it. I usually let myself free write and create small snippets of could be scenes or plot points for future projects. It keeps me interested in writing and it gives me somewhere to start when I finish a project and I am ready to move on.
