#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.

You can purchase Never Say Die on most platforms or in paperback:

  1. It's never too late to for a second chance...kinda like those '80s clothes in the back of my closet. Love this concept.

  3. Why do I get this feeling killing the "very bad doctor" isn't going to be as easy she seems to think? Great snippet.

  5. I'm sure it won't be easy to change history. But she seems determined.

  6. She's going to need all the courage and determination she can summon up, I think! Great excerpt!

  7. It sounds like she has a strategy for getting out of her loop.

  8. I only hope killing the bad doctor helps. It didn't in Terminator 2. Time can be funny that way. Great story!

  9. What determination. I want to yell, you go, girl! I hope she can stop the doctor in time.

  10. If she kills this doctor before he brings about the end of life as she knows it... she's so going to jail.

  11. I have a hunch her plan just may have a few snags. Intriguing story.

  12. She's definitely determined! Great snippet!

  13. So, if she does what she knows she must, she'll be prosecuted, but if she doesn't, her world is screwed. What a problem!
