There are just too many great things to write about there; I really need to keep writing if only to cover all my bases! Riding on the coattails of my musings about westerns, I had a conversation with a friend of mine yesterday about zombies and how zombies are totally hot right now. Not just in books, but in an awful lot of media as well, right down to a television show on AMC. I won’t even touch the series of classic books now featuring zombies, which I will one day read, but probably not any day soon. Naturally, I have plenty of ideas for zombie books. It’s incredibly difficult not to, as a huge fan of zombie films. And now it’s been determined that I really need to settle down and get to writing one.
I have several, but among my favourites is actually what I like to refer to as a sort of Alice in Wonderland apocalypse with zombies…and other strange creatures in the bill as well. And, if that doesn’t work, I’ve also got your standard trapped in an old state mental hospital with zombies collecting outside on the grounds. My zombies tend to be medical; something having to do with bad medications or screwed up procedures. It’s always interesting to see what sort of societal ills are reflected in the zombie of the moment, from radiation to metaphors on communism to medical concerns. Either way, now I’m considering trying to get something with zombies finished lately. It does seem that the possibilities for stories ever really end.
Ahhh, this post isn’t one of my bests; it’s been a long, but good, weekend, so my insight is a little off.
