#WeWriWa Never Say Die: A Zombie Time Loop Story #zombie #paranormal #apocalyptic #groundhogday

Starting this Sunday where the last left off. If you aren't familiar, Weekend Writing Warriors each share 8-10 sentences once a week, and I have been posting snippets from the first chapter of Never Say Die: A Zombie Time Loop Story. Cassy has figured out that she is in her own past and has a chance to stop the zombie infection before it starts.

My mother’s shout is lost behind me as my hair falls out of its knot. My legs tangle in my skirt and I yank it higher, hoping there’s a knife or scissors in the glove box. I need to lose this hair and then I need to kill a very bad doctor, hopefully before he breeds the end of mankind.
Jumping behind the wheel of the Caravan, my eye catches the bundle of threads dangling from the rear-view mirror with a silver fifteen attached.
“Trippy.” I touch the blue and green gingerly. It’s almost as trippy as my hair and this dress. I haven’t worn anything like this in ages. Most of us wear some version of army fatigues. I turn the ignition and pull away.

So Cassy has figured out that she's in her own past. We wrapped last week with her mother telling her that her high school graduation tassel is hanging in the car. I join the Weekend Writing Warriors in giving you another 8-10 sentences. What is she going to do with this knowledge?


“We still have the old Ford!” I remember how important a vehicle that was simple to fix became. The Taurus isn’t here, we came in the Caravan, but it’s waiting at home. “I can do something! Maybe I can stop the whole damn thing.” I give each of my parents another hug, digging in Dad’s pocket for his keys. “Call a cab. I’m taking the car. Trust me. Bye!”
“Cassy? Cassy!”

Time for more Weekend Writing Warriors. We each share 8-10 sentences on Sunday for your enjoyment. This is another taste from the first chapter of Never Say Die. I re-used the last two paragraphs to lead in. Cassy has just discovered that she's in her own past and her parents are confirming that.

"Manson is still in business? There haven’t been any...accidents?” I ask, trying to lead them.
“No, honey, Manson? Since when are you interested in drug companies?” I can tell he thinks I’m on the drugs.
“Just since they bred a super virus,” I mumble. “It’s really July tenth and I really just graduated a couple weeks ago?”
“Yes, Cassy. Your tassel is still hanging from the mirror of the car.”

#WeWriWa Never Say Die: A Zombie Time Loop Story #zombie #paranormal #apocalyptic #groundhogday

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors where authors post 8-10 sentences from a published piece, work in progress or upcoming release. I've been sharing from the first chapter of Never Say Die: A Zombie Time Loop Story. Cassy is having a strange discussion with her parents.

“You were just walking into the surf and then sat on the shore. You were so happy a moment ago.” Dad rubs my shoulder. He’s a full seven inches taller than me and his strength is always reassuring. Of course, at his words I don’t need reassurance, I need to be grounded -- it can’t be true, can it?

“Shut up.” My mouth sags a little. “It’s really July tenth? Manson is still in business? There haven’t been any...accidents?”

Another Sunday, another chance to read fantastic snippets from the Weekend Writing Warriors. If you've been enjoying Never Say Die, I'd like to point you at Creatures, a paranormal boxed set. It includes my newest release, Darkness of Light, as well as 20 other stories for only 99 cents!
Now, back to Cassy. Picking up with the last line of the last snippet:

“Yeah, well, it’s a pain in the ass when you don’t have reliable water and it gets caught in everything.” Absolutely true. After pulling most of a bush out of it the first night running from my rabid parents, I tamed it back. Then I got thrown into a pool of blood and wasn’t able to wash for two days. “That’s why I cut it off six months ago.”
“Six months ago you were asking Julie to braid your hair,” My mother’s brow is knit in confusion and I’m starting to feel the same.
“Yeah, if this really was July of ‘fifteen.” 2015, the year everything ended. 2016, the year those of us left tried to make a beginning.
“But…it is.” The sun gleams off the top of my father’s head and I wonder why heaven wouldn’t give him back his hair.

It's all about hair. No, it really isn't, but you'd get that impression from this snippet! You can purchase Never Say Die on most platforms or in paperback:

#WeWriWa Never Say Die: A Zombie Time Loop Story #zombie #paranormal #apocalyptic #groundhogday

Welcome to WeWriWa! Continuing from my last post, a couple of weeks back, here's the next 10 sentences. When you've read mine, be sure to hop on to all the others. Cassy had just found that her free flowing hair was getting into her eyes and mouth.


“You love your hair, honey. You’ve been growing it out since you were four.” My mother tugs on a lock. She’s right. It was my pride and joy, the way the light bounced off it giving highlights and redness. It has a gentle wave that is neither too curly nor stick straight. It gives it volume off the top of my head, looking full and luxurious. My friends always told me I should model in shampoo commercials. However…
“Yeah, well, it’s a pain in the ass when you don’t have reliable water and it gets caught in everything.”
