    That's too bad. I wrote a zombie story once, but it's 14,000 words long. I guess I'll have to write another one.

    Dom has been busy so he hasn't been here for a while.
    will let him know his favourite creations are now the story.
    He will like that. He is on holidays until next week sometime
    so I hope he enters.

    That's so weird, because I had a dream last night about zombies...and in the dream, at night they couldn't tell the difference between zombies and regular people, so they could only feed during the day.

    Also, I dreamed that I woke up, and tried to turn on my light...but the bulb was out! It was one of those "Oh****oh****, the zombies are totally going to get me!" moments. Then I really did wake up, and my lamp turned on just fine.

    Don't turn on the lights, then the zombies can see you aren't a zombie. :p

    This is a really difficult subject to write about in 3,000 to 3,500 words...

    And clean up any bits of rotting flesh on your way out, please. Daniel just went to a lot of trouble to clean the dust and goo out of the forum, and it's in fine racing condition.
