I've wanted to write a story for a long time, and recently I've been piecing together bits and pieces for a zombie apocalypse story that I'm trying very hard to actually make original. For the most part, I have certain pieces of the story here and there very well thought out. I have the opening scene worked out, I have a tragedy worked in for the middle of the story, and I even have a nice, juicy plot-twist that's hinted at throughout the course of the story in a way that I hope makes it understandable yet surprising all at the same time. My problem is the story is set up like this: MC is infected with the virus, but thanks to taking a vaccine that the government hoped would curtail the virus in the US (but only worked in a handful of cases), is an asymptomatic carrier. He is in a lab being tested on (in medias res), zombies (referred to in my story as "Creeps") show and mess things up, MC escapes with the help of some of the lab employees and they all go out and try to take the MC to a new lab so the experiments can continue to be run (before you ask, the experiments are a good thing, and the MC is willing to help). I have the story figured out well once they get to the new lab, which is where the story gets juicy and exciting, but I fear that the journey there will devolve into me merely carting my characters along to event after event, and when the only enemies are zombies (and terrorists, mabye), I don't know how to keep things interesting enough until the climax. So can anyone here offer a newbie writer some tips? I pay. Well, no, I don't pay, but I'd still appreciate the help.
