Welcome to ‘Stories In Your Pocket’
My name is Mike Jackson and I enjoy writing short stories and some of them are very short! Stories can, of course, be any length. Ernest Hemingway made famous the idea of telling a story in six words with – ‘For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn’.
The writing of very short stories comes under many different headings. You will hear such stories described as – Flash Fiction, Micro Stories, Sudden Fiction, Hint Fiction, Twitter Fiction, Smoke Long Stories, Drabbles, Dribbles, Mini-Sagas and much more.
I do my best to experiment with them all.

- Read my latest stories on my blog.
- Find out more about ‘Goodeyedeers’. This is an adventure I’m presently undertaking with a fellow retiree David Horner – a children’s poet. Between us, we are creating writing resources for teachers which we sell through TES Resources. The money we make from this venture goes to a local charity called MedEquip4Kids.
Let me know what you think and ‘Happy Browsing’.
