Short Story Progress

Currently creating a story for an SF anthology. I often take on one of these as a challenge and they are fun to try to create. You have to try not to do the ‘obvious’ story.

Zombies Need Brains LLC is accepting submissions to its three science fiction and fantasy anthologies APOCALYPTIC, GALACTIC STEW, and MY BATTERY IS LOW AND IT IS GETTING DARK.

While I am sometimes involved in a larger project, such as a script or novel, I’m always working on short stories. So I decided to create a page for this. Currently, I’m working on a dragon story – which is unusual for me, but it was sparked (pun intended) by a story call from Rhonda Parrish. It’s a great idea to read these story calls as they often inspire a writer. You can find Rhonda’s calls at:

Synopsis of the Dragon / BoilerMaker Story:

A dragon awakes after an enchanted sleep and, with the help of a noisy young girl, becomes more than a scourge on the countryside.
