Tiny Bits of Rotting Meat

Posted on: March 18th, 2010 by Anthony Rapino 7 Comments

I’m attempting to post at least twice a month. Two times every 30 – 31 days. Seems feasible when I don’t consider that all the tiny bits of rotting meat that compose my brain are acting out, attempting to derail–not my work, that isn’t quite right. But something, me possibly.

Yeah, so. The manuscript I put together for the art auction actually sold for $17. I hope whoever got it enjoys it, and I’m glad to have been able to contribute to the cause. Don’t know what cause I mean? Check out the previous post whydontcha.

One of the tiny bits just told me to type out many profanities, but I held my own. Proud? Sure you are.

I have a new story coming out this weekend in a small publication called Scalped. I’ll post a link to the distorted tale once it’s officially up.

The story was, once upon a time, called “State of the Union,” after which I renamed it “Manhattan” to adhere to an anthology’s guidelines. Then, when it was not accepted for the anthology, and to strip of it any lingering political themes, I renamed it once again “Smiles Beneath.” That is the name it will be published under.

Now the rotting meat is telling me to stop typing, quick, before something horrible happens. I’m inclined to listen this time.

Bye bye.

    Must be nice to have zombies as lawn ornaments.

    Onipar… I think we all have rotting meat in our brains. I think that's what makes things unique. Don't sweat it too much, everything'll come out just fine when it's ready too. 😀 The smellier the better for horror right?

    Congratulations on your story publishment! Can't wait to read it!

    Happy writing!

    Thanks, Andrea. I want zombie lawn ornaments too! 🙂

    Thank you, K. Yeah, the smellier *definitely* the better. And believe me, most of my writing comes out stinking. 😛

    Congrats on the story coming out in Scalped. As for the rotting bits, I find coffee and heavy metal help keep the brain in check for moments at a time.

    Thanks, Fox. Actually, coffee and heavy metal are my remedy as well. Good call! 🙂

    By the way, the story is available now, check out the latest post.
