Re: Zombie Nano Fiction

It could happen. We knew it starting out, and we learned again every time we lost one. It was the gamble. But what the hell - what choice did we have? Play the game or don't, you still have to go someday.

Shoot straight, my friend. Don't let me come back.

Living the dream.

Re: Wilkes County

With any luck. I've got some intermediate employment going that's been keeping me pretty busy lately, and I've got another little semi-zombie project I'm trying to knock out. Hoping I can punch through that one pretty quick and get on with the whole rewriting business. But our merry band of idiots w...

Re: Wilkes County

I'm not certain what's more disconcerting:

a) you just made that up in a fit of slightly-warped brilliance or,

b) you had that sucker on file.

...either way. :shock:

Re: Wilkes County

The rest of Wilkes County might be burning. Lakeshore Grove was barbecuing. Considering the quality of the neighborhood it was a natural inevitability; the big crash hit, ergo the Grovers celebrated with alcohol and music and dead animals and fire. Shifty made a late morning. Mostly the result of ha...

Re: Wilkes County

Even before she set foot in the Calhouns' house, Evelyn knew what she was going to do. Alighting from the truck she grabbed her range bag and carbine - the lightest articles in the cab, the most readily identifiable as hers, and the few she was most concerned about leaving unattended - and walked up...

Re: Wilkes County

For the tenth time in as many minutes, Mike crossed and uncrossed his feet. Lying on his back, he looked up at the scuff marks on the toes of his boots and fought the urge to growl, or check his watch, or make any kind of noise that might upset the house of cards in which he found himself. If he was...

Re: Wilkes County

The fire pit was a large round cattle tank sunk three-quarters in the ground, with enough of a lip protruding to keep passers-by and lawnmowers from falling in. In better days she knew that Mr. Calhoun had balked at paying for any form of garbage collection and used it to burn whatever he wasn't com...

Re: Wilkes County

The world had disappeared like a television switching off. It came back gradually, like waves lapping on the shoreline. Only the waves hurt like a son of a bitch and the shore felt like rough textured concrete digging into the side of his face. Arms afire, he pushed himself up on one shoulder and ro...

Re: Wilkes County (restarted 10/17)

For the briefest of seconds the world disappeared behind a blinding nuclear glare. For those few heartbeats she was terrified; not of the darkness, but of what waited in the light. But quickly the whiteout passed, and as her eyes adjusted from the dimness inside the barn she resolved the shape of th...

Not a restart, but the addition of another POV. This picks up chronologically from the last and will run alongside the two existing characters.

If you'll recall...this is the guy that Mike dropped off on his way to the bad shit that went down at the apartment.

Aw, hell. I never was much good at patience, anyway. *** Very seldom did visitors come to the house.
