Stephen King on the subject of Short Stories

 "A short story is a different thing altogether - a short story is like a quick kiss in the dark from a stranger."
-Stephen King -   Quote from 'Skeleton Crew'

Thank you for reading my blog. I am currently writing an adventure novel as my next project, but I love writing short stories. The challenge of quickly developing the plot - beginning, middle and ending, the setting - textures of the real world woven into an imaginary place, and the characters - crafted into three dimensional descriptions of believable persons... is exhilarating. When the reader is finished reading they should  wonder if it was fiction or fact. If you haven't read one of my books please do. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
