Instead, my fiction writing has been devoted solely to long works - novels. I have been known to say, "I don't know how to write short stories. I can only write long ones."
I hope that isn't true. I hope that I can write short stories as well as long. I better be able to because my next release, Emily's Heart, contains short stories.
I hadn't planned to include short stories within the telling of the last installment of Emily's tale. But when I began to write Emily's Heart, I felt I needed to get a grip on the Apocalyptic World that was unfolding around Emily and crew. The only way I knew how to "see" her world was to write it.
What came out was a series of short stories that act as short vignettes showing the world in which Emily lives in Emily's Heart. And by writing them, I have discovered that I can indeed write short stories. I hope . . .
Here is one of the stories. Fair warning: All of these "Apocalyptic World" scenes are dark. Blood is shed. People die. Alot.
Happy Reading ;-)

The Apocalyptic World
She didn’t want to look in his eyes again, but something made her look again. When she did, she shivered again and goose bumps broke out on her arms.
