The prompt for today is: zombies
This is what I wrote:
There are several movie reviewers I watch online. I’ve been rewatching episodes of one lately, and I’m in the Halloween episodes, which is why I’m talking about zombies in February.
I’m not a big zombie fan. Off hand, I can only think of three zombie movies I’ve seen, and of those the only one I liked was Shaun of the Dead. Zombies aren’t as interesting as, say, vampires. Of course, I’m not a big vampire fan either. I think I’ve written three vampire stories, but one of those was about a guy for whom “vampire” is just the closest term we have for what he really is, and another was about a woman who modified her body with nanites so she could play vampire. I do have a series of stories I need to work on at some point about “zombies,” but they are just dead bodies who – through nanites – are puppeted by criminals to commit crimes.
Looking back at what I’ve done with vampires and want to do with zombies, I guess I want to use these popular templates, but in my own way. Which is probably the best way to use them. I mean, you don’t want to just shamble around like a zombie writing about … zombies.
