Welcome

Welcome to ‘Stories In Your Pocket’.

My name is Mike Jackson and I enjoy writing short stories and some of them are very short! Stories can, of course, be any length. Ernest Hemingway made famous the idea of telling a story in six words with – ‘For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn’.

The writing of very short stories comes under many different headings today. You will hear such stories described as – Flash Fiction; Micro Stories; Sudden Fiction; Hint Fiction; Twitter Fiction; Smoke Long and much more.

I do my best to experiment with them all.

Where to go next? Explore this blog to:

  • Discover more about me.
  • Read some of my latest stories and thoughts on my blog.
  • Find stories in the micro fiction section that are all 100 words or shorter.
  • Read slightly longer pieces in the flash fiction section.
  • Discover some of my longer pieces under stories.
  • Explore the poetry section.  You will see I especially like writing Haiku and Haibun.
  • Find out what ‘Goodeyedeers’ is all about and how this is helping children write.
  • Read some of my thoughts about writing in general. This section is called ‘On Writing’, with apologies to Stephen King.

Let me know what you think and ‘Happy Browsing’.

I look forward to reading your comments
