Two posts in one day? Bwah?

Yeah, I know, very unlike me. However, I wanted to share this post from the Office of Letters and Light. If that name doesn't sound familiar to you, this might: NaNoWriMo. Them. Feburary is Pitchapalooza over there and I wanted to share the wealth with you. This will tell you all about it. My NaNo is currently summarized in 111 words and I can probably ditch the last sentence. What do you think?

In a case of Buffy meets Ground Hog Day, Cassadra finds herself stuck in a time loop. Instead of one day, Cassandra continually relives the zombie apocalypse until she finds the right keys to prevent it happening, fighting for her life every time she fails to stop the spread of the infection. Her loop ends every time she dies. Her loop starts every time she refuses to accept death as an option. She’s watched everyone she loves die and comes back to try to save them the next time. Her will to survive is what drives her story and makes us keep reading through horror after atrocity to see her succeed.

If you were at SIWC (Surrey International Writers Conference) this is the story with the pregnant zombie... only it doesn't actually have a pregnant zombie in it. Cassy is pregnant at one point and a zombie at one point, but not at the same time. That's what happens when someone overhears the conversation (I'm looking at Michael Slade who will probably never read my blog). However, there will be a pregnant zombie at some point. I can't let that idea slip away, can I?
