Although I plan to write more stories next month (stay tuned for the next one tomorrow night 🙂 ), I thought that I’d take a break tonight in order to compile a list of links to all of the stories I’ve written this month, in case you missed any of them. You can also find links to some of my older story collections on this page too.
Since my return to writing short stories was something of an unplanned thing, I foolishly didn’t prepare a “buffer” of stories in advance. As such, at least a couple of the stories were plagued by writer’s block and didn’t turn out that well.
Anyway, without further ado, here are the links to the stories – enjoy 🙂
– “Amusements“: This is a random comedy horror short story that I wrote somewhat unexpectedly.
– “Temple“: This is a short story about abandoned shopping centres, nostalgia, ubiqity, folklore, US pop culture, early 2000s Britain etc..
– “Off Hours“: This is a mildly comedic “film noir” style story that I wrote whilst experiencing writer’s block.
– “ESP“: This is a short story about someone who develops a psychic connection… to the internet.
– “Wake“: This is a vignette about three university students at a house party. It was more of a random practice piece/literary experiment than anything else, but it’s also something of a mildly comedic nostalgia piece about the 2000s (of all things) too.
– “Alarm“: This is a sci-fi comedy story about space stations and software updates.
– “Wave“: This is a slightly random short story about 1990s nostalgia, car boot sales and a university student trying to write a dissertation proposal. It’s a little bit on the rambling side of things (and it borders on being pretentious “literary fiction”) but it was fun to write.
– “A Playlist For Suburbia“: Well, I had writer’s block. So, I ended up writing this random character study about a guy listening to punk music. And, yes, this ended up being another 1990s nostalgia story.
– “Specimen“: This is a fearful tale of the macabre, with some moments of levity, set during a 19th century anatomy lecture. It’s probably riddled with anachronisms, but it was a lot of fun to write 🙂
