It took me a bit longer than I expected to write this latest story, inspired by a fantastic zombie apocalypse series that I'm head over heels for and can't wait for the new season to start next month. Fans of the show already know what I'm talking about (and can probably already guess which character makes me quiver).
I always want to make my stories as plausible as possible, so how to do you get busy in the midst of an apocalypse? These are things we should know, because facing death every day would definitely make me go after every experience I could - literally living as if it were my last day on earth. I sought advice from friends, who came up with some pretty good ideas (fire ants or wasps were the most popular scenarios; quick 'n' dirty up against a tree was the most realistic).
I'm still in full-on Halloween mode and tapping out my Netflix choices on horror movies for inspiration. You can check out the story I posted earlier this month, featuring another classic staple of the horror genre: vampires. My goal is to find something a little more obscure, a little less pop culture - but always dead sexy!
