These stories often begin as a strange idea or sentence. First they're written longhand in a book, usually in one sitting. If a story has potential (or is coherent enough, as with some of the earlier examples!), I then rewrite it on computer and it becomes a Silly Short. Oh, and in case you find yourself wondering, no -- I wasn't "on" anything when I wrote these ;)
