Tale Number One – The Knock

Hi there!  Since this is the very first story in The Scheherazade Project, please bear with me while I handle a couple of details.

If there was a specific prompt for any given story, I’ll tell you what it was.  This might be a sentence, a phrase, a few words, or a single word.  If you’d like to suggest prompts for new stories, please do!  Click on “Comment” in the menu at the top of the page and send me a note.

These stories are the style known as “flash fiction,” “short-shorts,” or even “microfiction” (though, those tend to be VERY short), depending on who is defining it.  They’re meant to be like a snapshot rather than the whole photo album.  This gives you the chance to fill in the past and future of the story in your own way.  I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please comment on the story posts.

Thank you for dropping by.  If you like what you see, please subscribe so you’ll know when new stories are posted.  Also, tell your story-loving friends!
