About

Hi,

Welcome to Zombie stories! The purpose of this blog is to publish a new, zombie themed, short story every Monday to Friday. If you like Zombie stories, short or a little longer than short, this is the place to be!

August 2009

Time to update this page! (I will leave in what was here before, you can find it below for historical reference)

Originally this project was intended as a writing exercise. Its taken on a life of its own beyond that.

Now I appear to have a small but dedicated following, Kindle readers and an actual story!

The story is not overly clear from any one or even from several posts, but its there, slowly being built up over time. I have stopped the Arc 2 posts (See below), as I intend on doing something seperate with those.

The stories have evolved way beyond the 101 word limit I initially implemented, with most running between 600-1000 words (Which technically makes them flash stories!).

Aside from the stories you see here, I have several other projects, feel free to check out www.miniaturecube.com which is a site dedicated to helping you find the restraunt you need, anywhere within the US.

Also check out www.gameOOT.com which will be going live in the near future (It may already be live when your reading this, in which case drop me a line to update this post!), its a site about games, but with an unusual twist that I hope you will enjoy.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the site, please leave any comments on any of the posts and I will try and respond in a timely manner.

Thanks and enjoy!

Rob.

Each story is roughly 101 words, for no other reason than I need a word limit to stick to. From my previous experiences at writing, having a solid rule makes writing easier.

Overall this whole site is an exercise for me to hone my writing skills. So if you see something really bad, or fairly off the wall, please dont be surprised.

As for why I choose to use a Zombie theme? For no other reason than Zombies are great!

-Edit

Over the first few weeks of writing this blog I have discovered a few interesting things that I wanted to drop in here.

The various short stories I have been coming up with all seem to have a place and as I have been writing them I hit upon a back story that I wanted to share. So every so often you will come across an ‘Arc 2’ story. These are sequential and lead up to the events of the ‘present day’ short stories.

They stay in the tradition of the other stories, in that they are short, so don’t worry about getting dragged (Kicking and screaming) into a long drawn out post.

As for the Arc 2 story line, you will just have to hang around to see how it develops, suffice to say I think its a pretty cool story line!

-Edit 2

Well ive decided to drop the 101 word limit, it was a nice constraint but being restricted by it was also limiting how I could develop some of the stories and characters.

Also ive begun to add in some images, its about time this place had some more color.

Talking of color, there will be a redesign coming along and a few other little features.

As for posting consistency, I know I’ve failed to keep posting at a steady rate, work and baby’s zombie defense training are taking a toll on how much time I can devote here. However I have been writing down a lot of story frames, so there really is no shortage to them all. Which is good.

Anyways, stick around and leave me some comments!

    Glad you like the stories!

    As for the Kindle thing, surprisingly well considering my expectations were pretty low to begin with.

    Its not going to make me rich any time soon, but its nice to know there are people out there who are willing to go above and beyond to support my little project. Now if I could just get a few of them to write some positive reviews…. πŸ™‚
