New School Year, New Blah

After the first two and a half days of a new school year, I've decided I'm quite the grumpy old curmudgeon (and so tired too). Hopefully I'll receive some magical boost of energy, or it's going to be a very long school year.

I sent off my story for The World is Dead. I like it, but this little demon kept whispering in my ear, "When your zombie story is rejected, what will you do with it?" I hear plenty of slushpiles are brimming with zombies right now. Not a good type-o-story to have in the trunk, eh?

Aw hell, I would have kicked myself for not trying.

Zombie anthologies are like the seasons, eventually another one comes around.

Of course, by then I'll probably forget I wrote one and go nuts trying to come up with a new story!

Despite the current glut of zombie stories doing the rounds, I found myself writing another zombie story this week - and it wasn't even for The World is Dead. :)

Zombies rule!
