This originally was to be a series of short stories that revolved around a place called “Staley’s Store”. Every story was to be independent, linked only by the fact that each story had at least one scene at Staley’s Store. Somewhere along the way, a plot developed. While you can read this series in any order your reading might flow better if you read them in menu sequence. The “next” button at the bottom of the page is in proper sequence for the first few stories. The Menu should be helpful at that point. 🙂
A few stories are almost like a “GIF” photo. Just a few moments to paint a scene. There might not even be a dramatic moment or climax. It is a scene which is connected to past and future scenes/stories. Eventually you may see why I included that story. But if you never do, I hope you can enjoy the picture it paints.
In order to keep my stories straight, I have drawn some maps of The Village of Beaver Ridge. If you want to access these maps they are placed in online/cloud storage. Click on the map link. Then click on “Open“. LINK TO Map of The Village of Beaver Ridge
FYI: There’s a color code in the upper left corner of the Main Map. I really drew the map to keep me straight. I make it available in case you prefer maps.
13 Sept 2020 Update: “A Frog Finds His Pond” was just published. After re-reading some of the earlier stories, I need to update the maps. I will be working on the next story in this series.
