Daniel Miller last shared their writing ...Wrecks Art Exhibit--Trickster Makes This World and the Role of Art in a Spiritual Life
This is a cross-post from the writing section of my website. I wrote this in the mid-2000s and recently rediscovered it, decided I still liked it, cleaned it up a bit, and published it.

Jazz Hands as reply to that sound...

Jazz heard the back door break. She heard the wood splinter, and the sound of saliva-drenched growling entering the hall between the door and the main room of the bar. She heard the heavy footfalls of the thing as it stumbled through the narrow passage, its arms scraping against the...

in the bar as reply to mack's

He sat in the center of the bar, leg propped up on another chair with the bag of ice Mack had provided draped across his thigh. He tried to adjust himself in the chair but groaned and gave up. Jenny had called for an ambulance. It took at least 30...

"I see" as reply to rules don't apply to us

He smiled and lit a cigar.

"We're just here to ask you a few questions.โ€

"I'll answer anything you want, but can I ask one thing first?"

I need to not care

As I drove to my chiropractor a driver next to be appeared to be changing lanes into me. I honked. They didn't move, still 10 to 15 percent in my lane, they just stayed in that position. A block later they would suddenly veer left into a parking lot to...

I'm listening to Chuck Palahniuk's Consider This. It makes me want to write, just like Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird did. It's more tactical, so it makes me think about the unfinished drafts, the first drafts, the second drafts all sitting around taunting me. I listen to it in the...
