My Adventure Into Action

My evolution as a writer for an adult audience, especially my fiction writing, often begins with a story idea or hook that I develop into a very short story. At times the creations are so short they qualify as flash or micro fiction.

Some of my stories later call to me with ways to enhance or broaden them with details and flourishes, additional scenes and vignettes, and fleshed out characters. I enjoy going back to previous short pieces and expanding them, much like the way Hollywood often used to take short stories and turn them into full-length movies. Some of my favorite classic movies began as short stories, including High Noon and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Four of my earlier short action adventure stories have recently ganged up on me and are flooding my head with ideas that are flowing faster than my ability to capture and use them in the yarns:

“No Choice at All”

The “Misunderstanding”

“Blood Oaths”

“Nightmare”

Thus begins another journey writing action adventure stories. I’m excited to see where each tributary on the Writing River takes me.

I may eventually package some of the stories in this genre as an anthology, or if enough ideas flow I may develop one or more of the stories into standalone books. Time will tell, but at the moment I’m just enjoying the ride.

With Love,

Russ
