Short Story Sunday: Hemmingway Edition

Legend has it that Hemmingway was in a bar (where else, amirite?) and he was bet that he couldn't make a short story with only ten words.  His retort was that he could do it in six.  A few seconds and ten bucks on the table later, he said to his drinking companion "For Sale: Baby's shoes.  Never worn."

Which just gets creepier and more heartbreaking the more you think about it.

Short Story Sunday: And A Wizard, Besides

This story is part Dungeons and Dragons, part psychological introspection, but mostly hey sandstorms are a cool plot device.  In all honesty I'm sure I have lots to say about this particular work, most of which is apologizing for how lame it all is, but methinks now is not the time.  I hope you enjoy the tale of the wizard Shasson in...

Short Story Sunday: Awakening

This story is an old one, and for that I apologize.  I know I'm supposed to be doing new and exciting stuff here, but I stumbled on this and I just couldn't help but share.  I wrote this in university, when I was (what else) playing in a Dungeons & Dragons game with some friends.  A pal of mine, Brandy and I were both involved in this fantastic game and we had created some rather intricate backstories for our characters, so we kind of took off running and made some fun shorts just because.  This one I am particularly proud of.  So, thatnks Brandy for being an awesome player, and Jason for being an awesome DM and thank you for reading!

 I'm a bad person. It is known.  Here's a long overdue short story, hopefully more to follow.
