Newest Posts: Story a Day for May, Day 19, May 19, 2018

Whether you’re an old friend or a new reader, I’m glad you’ve found your way here. I have a lot of SimLit stories; you don’t need to read them all today! They’ll be here waiting for you when you return on a rainy Sunday with a cup of tea!

What to read today? Not to be outdone by poetry, short stories have claimed the month of May! And, because I do love a short story, I’m joining the fun of Story a Day in May! I’m letting myself post short snippets of sketches–expect very rough, very short pieces. You can find the list at the bottom of the Bonus Shorts page.
