fiction

Because I can, I put one word after another.

Because I can, I ignore the critical voices in my head.

Because I can, I imagine a world beyond what I see.

Because I can, I write short sophomoric poems on web pages.

You wouldn't know I was a writer to read the things I've written. But I keep doing it, so I guess I'm a "writer." Things I've written range from extremely bad poetry to essays about the software industry to mildly funny short stories (or at least I think they're funny.)

Here are a few inspired by my life in the American west...

And a few normal stories...

And a few stories inspired by actual events...
