Anyone Want To Write A Short Story?

I like stories. Correction, I love stories. I love novels, short stories, fantasy, western, the whole lot.

I would love to read your stories. So I’ve got an idea. Over the next week, let’s write some stories. Your story can be about anything. Spiritual, secular, sci-fi, whatever. And don’t make it any longer than 1,500 words. This is your chance to have some fun and be creative. Don’t freak out about making it too perfect. This is just for fun.

When your story is done, upload it to and post the link on this post. I’ll read as many as I can and post the links to some of my faves. I’ll also write one and upload it.

So what do you think? Are you in?

The following two tabs change content below.
I’m married to Jen, and I have three kids. I know a lot about Star Wars, and I live in a van down by the river. I’ve also written a number of books, which people seem to like.

    Does it have to be a new story?
    I wrote a Western several years ago that is absolutely one of my favorite things I've ever written. It's got about 750 words. Am I allowed to submit that?

    I write in spanish, but I might dare to translate one of them and upload it. It would certainly be an adventure!

    This is stuff I wrote many years ago before I became a Christian. When I read them now I definitely see Christian influences. I admit some of the writing is depressing but it is from the heart. It is a struggle of a depressed man trying to find reason to live… Back then I didn't know the reason. Now I know the reason but I still struggle with learning how to love and glorify God correctly especially in the midst of depression.

      The stuff I uploaded is stuff from a while ago before I was a Christian. It is written by a man who was longing to find the purpose of life. I have found that purpose in Christ, but I still struggle with the depression. If you want to see where I am today go to my blog.
