bITS 'N CHUNKS
Wow y'all, I really tried it with this story! I vaguely remember writing it and it was inspired by a lot of Turner Classic Movies and this Halloween banger right here, thus the title. If you read slow enough you can hear the damn yodeling in the background! I was actually impressed by this story because it was another total throwaway and I didn't care for it, but looking back on it now, I can't really roast it. Right down to that Tales From the Crypt ending. Okay, maybe I can roast it a little. I think this is the last time I would write a true horror story but I don't know, man, I might need to try it again.
This is another from my FB challenge a while back and I'm not gonna lie, I love this story because it's sordid and cynical (and not representative of what I actually think, please don't come for me) and it marks the point where my writing shifted from cool & calculated to not giving two fucks. It's very stream of consciousness and I fully admit it makes no sense. It's very...Chuck Palahniuk? As much as I love it, I've also never had any real desire to shop it around anywhere. It's not bad and it's not TOO weird to make it somewhere, it's just one of those things I'd rather share for free and be on with it. I think it's because it's a little too early-aughts quirky, it feels like one of those "started from the bottom now we here" stepping stones to me being able to control my language. But looking back it's the surreal, cinematic direction I ended up taking. I feel like every few years I try to ape myself. It is very NSFW for language & sexual content.
What's up everyone,
This story right here is from a flash challenge I did with a friend on Facebook a few years back. I wrote one piece of flash fiction every day FOR A MONTH. It was a good challenge because it got the ol' literary muscles working but I kid you not when I say maybe 4 of those were any good and of that pool one is debatable. I read this over again and it was a total throw away story but looking at it again it's a pretty aight piece of writing. I have no desire to really submit it anywhere professionally so here it is! I don't remember why the title is Duran Duran inspired.
Ia! If you've come this far, you're either looking for weird or you know you've found it...
