Welcome to my blog, The Creative Chronicles of Dave Stancliff – https://asitstands.blog/– My House of Words features flash fiction, science fiction, fiction, poetry, and essays. I’m a retired newspaper editor and publisher who’s secret desire was to write fiction and poetry. I felt like a kid in a candy shop when I started this blog nearly three years ago. I was able to let my imagination soar like a bird with every word. Not only do I enjoy writing fiction and poetry, I love reading them.
By making contact with other fiction and poetry writers I’ve been able to expand my horizons and double my pleasure. This year I set a goal of writing something every day. So far, so good. My muse has been kind to me. I look forward to making new contacts and friends on this website.
I am CJ from SeeJayStark.com where I write short stories, book/movie reviews, and other nonsense. Most of what I write revolves around Science Fiction; Zombies, Aliens, and Video Games.
I started writing when I was a child. I was a big fan of Star Trek and always had questions about what the kids were doing during all of the events that took place during the shows. I knew there were kids because they were shown now and then, and they had class rooms. Since these questions weren’t being answered in the show, I started writing my own stories to answer myself.
Everything I wrote was kept private for most of my life until a few years ago when I decided to share a short story I wrote about a young boy used as a military experiment. A friend submitted it to a science fiction writing challenge and it wound up placing in the top 10 and being published in one of their quarterly magazines. I was inspired to share some more of my work, and so I started a website. My site has evolved a lot over the years and recently I acquired my own domain.
