B.O.S.S. – Blogging Original Short Stories

Blogging Original Short Stories (B.O.S.S.) are the core and brainchildren of my writing efforts.   They are unrestricted and mostly unedited.   Some ideas I latch onto and turn them into serials.   Others linger and pout in their corner of the world wide web.

Quality matters to me, but sometimes you need to let your inner editor take a break.   These stories are often created in less than an hour (Once I start typing) but a lot of thought from the week goes into them.

It’s a part of my writing process and it lends well to the stories that end up on the blog as well as Two Destroyers, Ambrosia, or any other future projects.

So sit back, relax and enjoy a B.O.S.S.   They’re usually between 1,500-2,500 words so they’re quick reads.   The subject matter and genres vary wildly, but they’re all important to me.


Please Note:  The theme link will take you to the original blog post, while the Story title will take you to a Google Drive page for easier reading.

Stories Marked as “One Shots” are ones I do not have plans on continuing the story, however that is subject to change.   Those that have a marked Part 1 mean I plan to make a second chapter for them!
