Zombies here, Zombies there, Zombies every bloody where. It seems like every where you turn these days, they are there waiting to ambush you; at the cinema, the latest novel or comicon event.
Just like a B-grade horror tragic, I too have succumbed to relentless tide of the undead. Having steered clear of the creatures for the past year, I became aware of a zombie short story competition in Australia. With procrastination as my current companion on Cyber Nightmares #2, I delved into the underworld to complete a submission in an effort to kick start my writing mojo.
Three weeks and four edits later, the extra flesh was trimmed down to the bone from ~6000 to ~3600 words. The submission guidelines being <5000 words. With the undead criteria met, the story was entombed.
Unfortunately for my readers / followers, I can not say much more until judging is completed at the end of August (this year) however the dead shall arise a week or two after the decisions have been made.
So if you love the undead, cultists or nuns with guns in your horror stories, then watch this space closely…
