STORIES BY ERIKA VIKTOR
Over the past 15 years I have written literally hundreds of short stories. Many have been published in various magazines and fiction anthologies including Albedo One, Faces, In Between Days, Folio and others. Other stories have been featured in nationwide contests. But my favorite stories are the really odd ones, the ones never seen anywhere because they were just too strange.
I have decided to publish all these stories for free on Wattpad. If you are not familiar with Wattpad, then you are in for a treat. Wattpad is the democratization of literature–in a good way. Users may publish short stories without need for approval, acceptance or red tape! They can freely share them with friends and family. It has been called the social media of writing. I saw the power of this service after watching a group of junior high students discuss each other’s stories with appreciation and interest. I think its great that kids (and grown up kids) can experiment and enjoy each other’s words. Wattpad is also ideal for readers who don’t have access to libraries or the funds to purchase books.
I will update a story by three chapters each week until the stories are done then they will be replaced with another story! Please enjoy the stories below:
