Astronaut Zombie, An idea inspired by reddit

21 Aug

Astronaut Zombie.

FADE IN
Shot of “Astronaut” doing spacewalk on moon.
Another known Astronaut sees him & tries to hail him on the radio, no response.
He tries again to no avail.

He makes his way over to the other “Astronaut” who has been walking away from him the whole time.
The Astronaut makes a few small jumps and lands just behind the “Astronaut” who he taps on the shoulder.

The “Astronaut” slowly turns around. His helmet shield is not raised.
It’s fully open. Open to space.
And the “Astronaut” is clearly not a living human being.
He is a desicated husk. A zombie.
Who starts to bite and grab at the Astronaut.

FADE TO BLACK

(Sometimes you just can’t turn your inner writer off)

A poem, because I was bored.

Have a poem.

Heaven’s got no wi-fi, Hell has got 4g,
The Devil’s streaming Breaking Bad off Torrents just for me.
He downloads brand new movies while God gets 404’s,
Jesus he may want our souls but the Devil’s getting yours.
Heaven gives you theatre, Hell 3D tv,
Going to Heaven looks quite nice, but Hell seems better to me.
Heaven’s got classical music, Hell’s got Rock ‘n Roll,
Given the choice I think I know where I want to send my soul.

Short update about writing

6 Aug
Typed up my short Mythbusters related story. Not sure what the fate of that one is yet.
Heard back from Every Day Fiction, Veterans didn’t make the cut sadly. They liked it but didn’t think there was enough characterization, they got the themes though so I achieved my main aim.

“Daddy I’ve fallen for a monster”, a flash fiction story by Raymond Daley.

“Daddy I’ve fallen for a monster” a flash fiction story by Raymond Daley.

The foolish child is in love with another human.
I have tried to explain their violent narrow-minded ways to her.
They hate us. They hunt us.
They kill us.
The child is only 1000 years old, how can she possibly understand having lived such a short & sheltered existance.
They will find out, they will find us.
They will come with torches burning, pitchforks raised.
No questions will be asked. I must kill another stupid human.

Again.
