10 cent stories, typewritten while you wait

For two years I've been busking with a typewriter and a sign that says "10 cent stories typewritten while you wait". Just today I got an essay about it published in the toast and I've begun putting all of my stories and pictures of people I wrote them for on twitter @10centstories or #10centstories

Go Ahead, read my stuff.

This is just a tumblr I've put up to put up anecdotes for my grandchildren to read. Saves me the trouble of having to remember all the details when I'm 80, I hope, I can hand the kids an iPad with all the tales neatly formatted and pictures alongside. The next generation of grandpa's knee! Of course, that's the excuse I use on myself: that someone will want to read them. So, I thought I'd stick it up here and let you folks look and critique my writing/style/whatever.

Blorpy: Interesting stories found in comments

Internet comments are a cesspool, but I love them. I've been finding and sharing an interesting comment, mostly ones that tell a great personal story, every day for almost the last year at blorpy.com. Some are from Metafilter, some from Reddit and some from Quora. Example posts: More about my reasoning and my thoughts on comments in general here: Comments Aren't Crap

A Dangerous Woman Press

A Dangerous Woman Press is my way of creating an ebook The World's Most Dangerous Woman that is a hybrid of short stories complete with mini-chapters that taken together, form a cohesive novel -- plus there are one shot stories and a companion magazine that takes the supporting characters related to the main book and gives them starring roles in their own serialized stories.

Love Letters From a Stranger

I've been writing short stories and sending them to this email list weekly-ish for the last couple of months. Some (but not all!) of them are archived here if you want to see what they're like. They have involved mimes in trouble, zoo animals menaced by a malevolent force, and tiny bananas, among other things. Read some free stories and subscribe, if that's the kind of thing you'd like.

PITH: Extremely short stories

I wrote a book of 100 very (very) short stories. Each story is around 100 words. They're mostly all dark/strange/grim, but some of them are funny, too. I self published and released it this week. It's available as ebook, paperback or free PDF download and released under Creative Commons license.

Wanderlust, an experimental mobile storytelling platform

Wanderlust is a new way to tell location-based stories on smartphones from Six to Start. Instead of readers having to be in specific physical locations (like setting a Sherlock Holmes story in Baker Street, London), Wanderlust sets stories in classes of location. Act 1 might be in any cafe in the world, Act 2 in any museum, Act 3 in any bar. It's more like atmosphere-based storytelling. [more inside]
