Zombie Luv Flash Fic Contest: Advantages

All right ... if you are cool like me, then you follow Mia Hayson's blog. And if you are super cool, then you also follow her Zombie blog. Trust me. If you want to survive the zombie apocalypse that is destined to come, then you NEED to be following her. I never thought about zombies much. Then Mia was talking about them only ALL of the time and I thought, this might be important. Then I read the most amazing zombie YA novel (Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry and yes, I have mentioned this book before and I will mention it again. I really liked it. A LOT) and so I've kind of had zombies on the brain.

Well, Mia posted some flash fic that she was doing for a zombie contest. It's being sponsored my Mari's Randomities and Flashes in the Dark.
So I thought I would check it out. I have never written anything even near this genre before. But it seemed like it would be fun and what did I have to lose anyway? (The contest is open until July 10th, so if you want to try your hand at it you have time.)

So here is my first ever ZOMBIE FICTION. I had SO much fun writing this and I think (hope) that comes through. enjoy!


I had to take this down for some reasons, so sorry if you're looking for it :)

I left the pretty pictures up for you! :D


Mia said...

OMG 1. HEHEHEHE yea, you are SUPER SUPER COOL *nods* thanks for the shout out.

and 2. WHEEEEE, you already know but haha I love this! Also WHOA Toby is cuute. I would totally be conflicted if he walked in a room because he's undead but also looks nice ;)


Mari said...

Great that you took up the challenge Rebecca. You're on! :D

Raquel Byrnes said...

That was great! I love he way you turned everyday puns around.

Jemi Fraser said...

Fun story :)

I don't usually do flash, but this sounds like so much fun, I might give it a try!

@Mia: Thanks for linking to the contest so I could join in the FUN! And finding pics for my stories is totally your fault too :P

@Mari: Thanks for hosting! I never would have done this without a little push and I had SO much fun!

@Raquel: I had way too much fun with those puns. Thanks for reading :D

@Jemi: You totally should do it! Especially if you don't usually do it. I don't do flash OR zombies and this is one of my favorite things I've written in AGES.

I don't know how you did it, but the awkwardness from before is all gone. Weeeeee...

I love it.

Jenn said...

This was super-cute! Imagine that! A "super-cute" zombie tale! Awesome!

Erin Cole said...

I enjoyed the innocence in this and the cute phrases, 'deathday' and 'scaredmebacktolife', and of course, the happy outcome, nicely woven together.

Angel Zapata said...

Who knew a zombie tale could be...sweet?

Enjoyed the dialogue and the zombie with muscular shoulders.

Delia said...

"She rolled her eyes at him." Too funny. Great job!

Autumn said...

Hahaha! That was even better than the one I saw!! =)
(though you can't see me I am smiling and though you can't read my thoughts I am now wondering why this was only the first real thing I have seen. I want to see more...)

VW: unumi - a made up word that also doubles as a name for a dolphin.

Donald Conrad said...

This line, “Ohmygoodness! You scared me halfwaybacktolife!”, is not only well thought out and sorta cute, but defines the character in near totality. I could hear her say that.

Cute zombie story.
