The Story of a Story

I'm fortunate enough to have a story up at Flash Fiction Online. It's in their April issue, which focuses on the silly... which is definitely a good place for 'Meditation for the Dead'.

It's one of those stories that came to me out of the blue. I was in a very bad mood one evening, and in an attempt to improve my temper I tried doing a guided mindfulness meditation... knowing full well that the purpose of meditation isn't to calm yourself, but to accept how you're feeling. After about five minutes of very, very patient mp3 guidance I yanked out my earphones and thought: "Damn it, I'll do this when I'm dead."

Then I wrote this story, and my mood improved drastically :-)
