Story Cafe - Short Stories For A Better World
Stories help us grow as individuals and as a society. They bring us insights and new perspectives. They help us in healing from challenging times and offer us inspiration in moving forward.
While not limited to these elements, stories include the mysterious, the magical, and the humorous. They transport us to other cultures, worlds, and realities. At their most basic, they teach, entertain, and create space for discussion.
I love stories. And I know many of you do too.
In response to full schedules, short attention spans, and desires for immediate gratification, I've embraced short story and Flash fiction writing. Flash fiction are short stories--but usually in the 500 to 1,000 word range. In addition, Flash fiction sometimes straddles the border between prose and poetry. Thus, some Flash fiction may be referred to as prose-poetry.
My intent is to share stories that are meaningful, playful, healing, and insightful. I like to weave in spiritual and philosophical themes and alternative perspectives.
So if you only have time or interest for a story bite rather than a whole, long literary meal, please enjoy my story morsels, including those listed under my "Quick Tales For Kids."
Later this year, my stories will be available to be purchased as ebooks on Amazon.com.
