Stories written between June 2018 and January 2024

Wednesday 1/3/24

This is the list of stories I've written--works of fiction--since June 2018. The list had not been updated since spring 2022, which I remedied this morning. These are completed works--not works in progress, or works I know I will be writing. Most of these stories were written for specific books. They were done by design in that sense.

This list, of course, does not include anything from my other books that were done over this period or are being done presently, nor nonfiction pieces. One might note--plus, it's been stated a couple dozen times--that this Many Moments More journal, which is now over 2500 entries in length, and approaches three million words--I have to do another word count--was itself started in June 2018.

Is there a reason that these two things--the most productive period of fiction writing in history and this journal, which is the longest single sustained work in history--were began at the same time? I don't know. It wasn't by design, as part of a plan. But doing the one may have facilitated the doing of the other.

But it's all real. No one can deny that any of this has happened, that someone could do all of this--and, again, there are other things that I'm creating at the same time in their own staggering amounts--because I've actually done it. Am doing it.

I'm not just some person. I'm not just some writer. I'm not just some great artist. I'm not just some genius. I am not like any of these people who call themselves a writer. I'm not like anyone. I'm not like anyone there has ever been. I am something else entirely.
