Tweet the Meat - Update

I was rushing yesterday, as I am again this morning. I came home from work to a husband in severe back pain and unable to move. We did a round of doctors and pharmacies and then I played nursie when we got home. We will do it all again today.

Tweet the Meat is a "Twitter-Based Horror Zine." Horror stories in 140 characters or less. They pay $1.00 per accepted submission. I decided to try this after reading about it at Susan's stoney river.

If you use twitter, you can find my story at http://twitter.com/tweetthemeat for the rest of today.

If you do not twitter, I will post it later. Tweet the Meat has first "publishing" rights.

This is my first official paid story.

  1. Sorry about your husband's back. I hope he is better soon.

    I am not sure what tweet the meat is? I think congratulations is in order for your writing prowess.

    Your tree is just beautiful with all the lights and the reflections.

  2. Please post later because I don't tweet...also wishing your husband well...

    much love

  3. Aww i hope your husband feel better! Congrats on being a paid published writer :)
    i've tagged you in my recent Christmas post. Check it out if you'd like to play along.

  4. DEJA VU!!! *Downs a double shot of Woo Woo

  5. ok you're going to think I'm crazy. You probably already do, so we're set.

    I had back pain for years. They wanted to do crazy surgeries on me and I'm pretty young.
    Someone told me to read this. I was like, you're a nut sack. I read it. I have no more pain. I swear to you.

  6. Hope your Hubby is better!
    A paid story - yeah!!!!
    I don't do twitter so I'm looking forward to your post.

  7. Hey, you're a professional writer now! $$$

    Hope your hubby is feeling better soon!

  8. Being a nurse and a writer....you are both heroic and creative. I hope your husbands back is better soon.

  9. Congrats. I looked on the site, but I don't know which one is you, and I got a bit scared, so I'll wait for you to share it with us.

  10. I REALLY hope your husband is feeling better today. There is a lot of stress this time of year with all of the hauling of decorations and trees. Praying for his speedy recovery!

  11. Oh my...I'm not sure how to submit my work of art to them, otherwise I would certainly have to try, although I am a romance writer.

  12. I can't understand twitter for the life of me!

  13. Your tree is just beautiful with all the lights and the reflections.
