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

Weekend Writing Warriors is a fantastic group of writers who share 8-10 sentences every Sunday. Cassy just reminded us how Dr. Evan's became to be a curse word by starting the plague that decimated the human race. She relates a little more of the end times she lived through on her way to deal with the source of the problem.

None of that tells me where he lives or what hours he works. I pull my Mom’s phone out of the glove box and start searching online. God, how nice is it to have internet? Now that I know where he lives, I can just wait for him to come home.
Flying through my hometown gives me a twinge of home sickness and regret. It will burn down in a few weeks. Adults living alone will leave things turned on when the virus claims them and the firemen that would normally help will be busy eating one another. If they head to fires, it’ll be with a taste for cooked meat. Oddly enough, it will be a blessing. Those of us who still have brains will be able to group while the meat sacks flee or burn.

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

  7. Her attitude is so grimly realistic and in such stark contrast to the everyday world she came back to, which I LOVE. Nice effect, great snippet.

  8. That detail about the firemen is wonderfully gruesome. All of this helps us to understand how she could be so determined to murder this guy.

  9. She's become quite cynical. Deservedly so, of course.

  15. Yes, I agree with everyone, a gruesome excerpt but something she has to come to grips with and so does the reader, makes very compelling reading!
