Snapshots is an ongoing series of micro-tales, culled from my daily writing exercises.

I peruse the Internet in search of interesting photos that suggest story ideas to my inner writer, then see where those ideas take me.

Where possible, I give credit to the photographer, along with a link to his or her page.

I am indebted to author Erin Morgenstern, who encouraged me to give micro-tales a try after I told her I was inspired by the Flax-Golden series on her website. She told me it was “yoga for the brain,” and I heartily agree.

If you’re interested, you’ll find the archive of Snapshots here.
