Believe it or not, this is what I actually look like. Photo © Ben Gorde.

I’ll be using this page to showcase any stories I end up writing. These will generally be short stories, flash fiction, or any writing exercises I feel like sharing. I always love getting some feedback on my work, as in more than just a lot of views or likes.

Most of my stories tend to feature anthropomorphic animal characters. Why? I find them more interesting to write than humans. However, there may be some human characters in these stories, or there will be stories that only feature human characters.

I generally write slice-of-life stories because they’re the easiest to write for me, but I don’t mind branching out into other genres of fiction. I’m still new to fiction writing. I have a lot to explore and experiment with and have a lot of potential to grow as a writer. Anyone who’s a creative type can learn a lot through experimentation, regardless of experience in their craft.

I try not to get too heavy with explicit content, and I’m not a huge fan of stories that solely contain these themes without any others (adventure, sci-fi/fantasy, action, mystery, etc.). I’m in no way against explicit content; I simply see it as a part of a larger whole that’s necessary to the story.

In any case, I hope you enjoy my stories! I would love to hear your feedback on them!

~Ben (a.k.a. Ricky)
