thank you for being here.

if you enjoy reading short stories as much as we do — thank you again.

and if that is the case — if you seek out short stories on the web to read and relish — we might have enough in common on which to build a long lasting friendship.

the long and the short of it: life as a shorty features, celebrates, and promotes short stories (which can be found online) and their authors.

if you would like to nominate a story to be featured here, or if you’d like to shower us with praise and adoration, please go to our “contact” page.

we like to thank people, so thank you again.

our name:

a nod to our first literary love: 90s hip hop. wu tang clan has a song called C.R.E.A.M. which is an acronym for “cash rules everything around me” and in that rap tune there’s this great line: “life as a shorty shouldn’t be so rough.” we thought we’d adopt it for our use. thank you wu tang clan.
