Random Short Stories: Table of Contents
This is the place for random short stories written by me, ScottyDM.
Back in 2001 I found this story while looking for photos of skunks, but didn't save a bookmark for it. A few days later I wanted a copy of the story, but couldn't find the original (the Internet is sometimes like that). So I rewrote it from memory, embellished it, and refined it a bit. I have since found that original Rainbow Bridge story (see "...and beyond"). Although that may be the original version with a skunk, I suspect there are many other versions featuring other types of pets. This is my retelling of The Rainbow Bridge.
Other Short Stories
I keep notes on my story ideas. My current list contains fantasy and sci-fi ideas, with each of these as a working title and a single paragraph. I've expanded one of these story concepts into a novel, and it is on top of my work pile for 2005. Perhaps in 2006, I'll start work on some of my other ideas.
As an engineer I know nothing is ever perfect, and I like to present my best work. As nothing on the Internet is cast in stone, I sometimes refine and rewrite my stories. You deserve to know if any of my changes are substantial enough to warrant a reread, and can find out here.
Note, only changes to the contents of the web pages in Random Short Stories are cataloged.
