The TNB with an excerpt from “The Strangest”

Check out the visitation scene from THE STRANGEST over at The Nervous Breakdown.

I am taken back to my cell.

With some certainty, I might have imagined the call.

Just like you forget to turn off the lights before leaving the apartment, it’s not really there until you are forced to return. The same thoughts bring me to a revision; I see and hear bits and pieces of the call and by the time I feel sick again, I will already be at the toilet, on my knees, ready to let it go.

I will have saved myself from having to clean up after my sickness.

Save myself from the small messes.

The TNB Self-Interview “The Strangest” Edition

And now for something a little different–a TNB Self-Interview wherein Meurks, the character, speaks to me, the author, and it’s all very anxious/awkward:

You know you could go out tonight. It’s Friday.

It’s always the same imperative–go out, bar, show, some reading,something. I’m tired, okay? I’m tired and I really should get back to this novel.
