In August 2020, I set myself the challenge of creating a daily digital collage based on an image and a concept. The image was that of the antique Omega watch that belonged to my Mom and the concept was Time.

In September 2020, the Anomalous Duo — my life/art partner Tammy Remington and I—challenged ourselves to write a short piece of fiction, 500 or less words, for each collage — the Our Hours project.

Each of my published stories contains a link to RemingtonWrite’s story, and vice versa.

Below are links to all 31 of my stories, and thus, within, all of Tammy’s.

Here’s a thought. You could set yourself a goal of reading two very short stories throughout the 31 days of December.
