Two years ago, I started writing short short stories ... so short that I sometimes called them scraps ... as part of my transition from commercial writing to literary fiction. Since I didn’t belong to any writer groups, I took a chance and started sharing them on my Facebook author page. It wasn’t the first time short fiction appeared there (or longer stories on my blog, for that matter), but two things changed. It was the first time in my life I started treating my short stories like an assignment, with equal weight to any advertising/marketing deadlines I might have. Second, it was the first time I was committed to publishing fiction with consistency so people could anticipate a new story every week on my author page. Immersion has become an inspiration. After sharing the first few stories, I fell into a creative rhythm, and an overarching idea began to crystalize. By supporting my work, you support a body of work ... intersecting short short stories, short stories, and novels.
