First I need to apologize. I think I may have been ahead of myself in posting any part of my zombie story. The little I provided was not a finished chapter. It wasn’t polished. It was about as rough as my rough draft can be. So, I apologize for jumping the gun.
Good news though is that I feel I am finished now with my rough draft of chapter one. It went from a little over 800 words to almost 2800 words. I can’t promise that it’s going to stay that way as I now have to edit and revise. Whew. I am aiming to have the chapter ready to share by tomorrow night.
Thanks for reading!
The wicked beast Distraction has been trying and succeeding to distract me from writing. Some of the distraction was enjoyable. Most was responsibility. Hurray for my small defeat last night as my hubby grabbed the sword for me and held the beast off. I got to write about 1000 words last night before sleepiness took over.
I still have a little work to do on it, got to finish the chapter and then clean it up a bit. But, you can be expecting the rest of chapter 1 soon!
“People are in such a hurry these days.” The elderly man standing at the counter said.
“I don’t think we should even have stop signs anymore. Just put in yield signs so all the rushing people can get through as fast as possible.” Answered another elderly gentleman sitting in the doctor office chair behind me.
“Melanie.” Called the nurse. I left the two men venting to one another about “people today” and couldn’t help laugh a little to myself. Then I started thinking about it. Continue reading

I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday weekend, whatever it is this holiday means to you. I personally enjoyed the extra family time and the parade we go to go to.
I need to write. I’ve got several stories demanding my attention and life is even more demanding. I am blogging this right now while my hubby drives, a rarity.
Between doctor visits, tests, kid appointments, and end of the year school activities, this week is hopping. I try my best to get some kind of creative writing in daily, but it’s going to be a tight schedule.
It’s the weekend! Yeah! I love the weekends. As a mom the weekends is my time to enjoy my children. We are heading to the pool today. Nothing could be better at all than time with my children and the water! I think I was a dolphin in a previous life.
Have a great weekend!
Ok, so I get this comment on my post from last night that leaves a link about needing writers. I figured it was probably trash but decided to go visit the link anyway.
The very first thing I read is: “There has been an explosion in the need for online writers, regardless of skill.”
Regardless of skill? Was this supposed to hook me by making me feel safe that I won’t be rejected? *Hits back button as fast as possible*
Sorry, but that was so not the way to get me interested.
