My blog Short Stories by Richard has slowly grown. It now contains a collection of six stories.
These very short works of fiction attempt to dissect human life using sudden, sharp cutting edges. The revelations can be surprising.
Many endings are uplifting. Some aren’t.
Almost every time I reread one of my stories I make changes. New eyes–new dissatisfaction–new inspiration. So you might notice they’ve evolved a bit. Hopefully for the better. To read, click the links:
Light on the Restless and Small is a fast flirt with philosophy and one difficult question.
The Drawing of Leaves suggests that nothing we do is unimportant.
A Few Words and a Pelican touches upon life and death, and the need for compassion during our journey.
A Voice in the Shell reminds us that beauty is infinite and that listening is vital.
A Miracle on Sixth Avenue instantly takes the reader from hopelessness to hope.
An Unexpected Sunflower is my favorite short story so far. It proves that small things can change the world.
