Stories of the Short Variety

THIS BLOG HAS MOVED OVER TO malissagreenwood.com

PLEASE GO AND FOLLOW ME THERE FOR THESE AND OTHER SHORT STORIES, AS WELL AS BOOK REVIEWS AND QUOTES. 🙂

In my tireless effort to become a “real” writer, I sometimes dabble in writing short stories. Some of these are part of a Facebook group I’m a member in entitled “The Iron Writer” where, when competing, you are given a few elements that must be included in the story. Others are simply stories with seemingly no inspiration and no point.

They are all fiction, they are all written by me – Malissa Greenwood – and they are all yours for the reading. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Trading Bills For Banjos

“The list of expenses was never ending. But the list of income, on the other hand, was short. And the credit cards were at their limit.”

Safety Goggles

“I think most children grow up with safety blankets or favorite toys, but Bobby clings to his goggles like they are a super hero cape, putting them on whenever he needs to be brave.”

Unit 143

“I opened the thick metal door and started down the corridor in search of unit 143.”

A Simpler Life

“If you found the fountain of youth, would you drink?”

Out Of This World

“I don’t belong here. I’m a freak of nature, as the kids would say. Well that’s what they would say if they knew. But they don’t know; no one does..”

Mackenzie and the Machines

“It was bad enough to have been in that monstrous lab for as long as she was, she couldn’t imagine going back. What horrible experiments would they perform next?”
