Blamers – A Short Zombie Story

A blast from the past that I felt like re-running instead of generating new content because I am exhausted in every conceivable way but I wanted to put something out there. This little piece is essentially the protagonist of Waiting on the Dead, a novel I’ve been Waiting to Finish since I lost the ability to be that guy for a while but I’m hoping to recapture that voice so I can finish it and get that monkey off my back. Anyway, consider this an introduction to The Waiter.

Me and My Shovel

That short story idea I mentioned?  I carved some time today to bang it out.

There’s a lot to hate about the world today.  I mean, between the lack of electricity, horrendous snarls of traffic from abandoned cars, the total absence of a friendly face, and hordes of disgusting rotting cannibalistic walking corpses  – let’s face it, there isn’t much to be happy about.  Unless you count being alive in the face of all this, which is sort of a mixed curse and a blessing when all is said and done.

    Ran into this today. Here’s to hoping the characters are tolerable and the story believable… as interesting and alive as the world described in just a few pages of Blamers. I’m actually kind of excited about the potential again; I hope it’s not another hate-watching disappointment.
