My Writing – The Phone Call

The Phone Call is the story of one woman’s past revisiting her in the future.

Length: 1 page

Genre: Fiction

Creation/Publication: 1995



The purpose behind this story was to see if I could write a short story in half a page. I have a tendency to long stories. I was reasonably happy with the results.

The story can be read here: The Phone Call

A few items to note when reading these stories:

  • Please enjoy them and feel free to let me know your thoughts. A writer always appreciates feedback when attempting to grow their craft.
  • Many of them remain unedited since their original creation date and contain misspellings, improper grammar and made up words. These are in here for flavor and as a time stamp to reflect my age when they were created.
  • Over time, I hope to include “Directors Commentary” in all of my stories. Hopefully this adds some flavor and context for the creative process and my thinking as these stories were created.
  • These are being shared for the benefit of the community and ask for respect to all who read, share, and comment on the material within.

      Thanks! I knew someone in college who was an adopted who had her mother’s phone number/address and had had it for years and had never chosen to use it. I always wondered what it would be like on the other side of that story.

        That is so incredible! I loved the half page story telling attempt. I always that that some idea would “feel” stronger if there were less words. You totally succeeded. 😀
