Matthew Toffolo: What gave you the idea to write this very short story?
A.R. Braun: When I was in grade school, my best friend and I used to do brain freezes, saying, “What was here before God created the universe? Nothing. But there’s got to be something!” Seriously, kids are smart. Lately, it’s been screwing with my mind every time I think about what was before the universe. I worked my magic on it, added some insidiousness, and this is the end result.
2) How many stories/screenplays have you written?
Short stories? Going on 100.
Screenplays? Three. The latest is a high-concept horror screenplay.
3) What movie have you watched the most times in your life?
The Devil’s Advocate. Just something about it. True lies.
4) What’s your favorite thing about twitter? What’s your least favorite thing about twitter?
Free promotion for my writing. Least fave? Trolls.
5) Who would you really like to have dinner with? (dead or alive)

SCREW WITH YOUR MIND
by A. R. Braun
What existed before the Creator made the universe? It was just the Heavenly Father, doing nothing? A void of nothingness? But there had to be something! Who created the Creator? What was He doing before He created everything? Going crazy? This is too much for our minds to handle.
