“Write a new short story every week. It’s not possible to write 52 bad short stories in a row.” – Ray Bradbury


Ray Bradbury’s quote resonates with me in many ways. Write every day, even if it’s crap. Refine your craft, and expand your voice.

Here you will find Shorts that you can read for free. Some were inspired by the news or actual cases. Some were inspired by songs that I love. Some are challenges presented to me by other people using keywords and rules to write by.

These stories are multi-genre stories, and some of them have pushed me out of my comfort zone through requests from other people, working on various writing exercises, or challenging myself.

NOTE: As of June 2018, I will not longer post unedited short stories on my website or Wattpad.
