"My Room"

Posted on: April 3rd, 2010 by Anthony Rapino 6 Comments

Today my 100-word flash piece “My Room” was published.

I wrote this little guy a couple of years ago for a contest that never was. Back when I had a couple flash pieces published by another magazine, I submitted this as well, but they found the content too disturbing for publication.

I never did think it was all that bad. Hope you enjoy.

    Great "stomp line"–leaves one with a nice, unsettling feeling in the gut.

    I liked that ending, I probably shouldn't, but I did. 😀

    I write flash horror and I have to say, 100 words of less is extremely challenging. You did a wonderful and pleasantly wicked short!

    Thanks! Glad you all liked it.

    Like most of my writing, as I reread it I spotted a few things I would love to change, including a couple commas that don't need to be there, but what can ya do…

    Yeah, that last line is what kept it from previous publication. 😉

    This was great! I loved the "naked lightbulb" it was a nice description of desolation… and i chuckled at the ending, was not expecting that but it was a goodun!

    Congrats 😀
