    Cannibalism bites. Zombies just rot.

    Zombies. Ever since I first saw Night of the Living Dead, I've been in love with the idea of zombies.
    Also, for further reading, get the Zombie Survival Guide. It's taught me everything I know about zombies.

    Ghosts would be fun to write about. Oh, my, a preposition! About which to write?

    from the perspectives of an animate would really bring out a creative side in all of us. i am really feeling that topic, and already have an idea in mind. :]

    My decision was between zombies and Inanimate. Zombies is good for writing action but inanimate is great for things like description and thought. >.> I picked inanimate because its just so much fun. Zombies rock and all, but inanimate things are so much fun!

    I agree with you 100%. I just think that zombies are a little too "played out".

    ANYTHING can have a broad perspective unless you're not very talented in writing.

    This just messed up the entire contest for me. If Inanimate wins, it'll be from the perspective of a golf club in a zombie outbreak... else I just won't enter.

    I'm sick of these other damn things winning over zombies...

    The more popular ideas that don't win are put forward to next time's voting so one would imagine eventually the zombies will win out ...

    Or be put out. Some people might stop voting for zombies if they think they'd never win.
