Married Zombies: The Weekend Freewrite- 1/5/2019

Yesterday was Sunday. It should have been Tuesday but it got messed up. What was I going to do? They, Herbert and Sandy, were expecting me as their best man. I was late. This may destroy their entire wedding.

I raced to the bathroom and made my hair the best that it could look after throwing in some styling gem. It was a wreck but it would have to do.

I went out it my car. The damn thing wouldn't start as I turned the ignition key. The smell of pomegranates filled my nose. I looked to my left over into the neighbor's yard where the spectacle of the juice stand stood. Gabby, a girl around the age of six, was using a juicer to get out the little bit of juice she could from what she had.

Turning the ignition key again, the car started. I raced down the street. A pothole proved destructive to my tire. Going to the trunk, I remembered that I'd used the spare last week when I help an elder woman out.

I got down on one knee. I was going to pop the question right then, but then I heard little Gabby scream. I whipped my head around and saw little Gabby getting mauled by some homeless man. Getting a better look had revealed the grotesque blood and guts dripping out of his mouth.

I moved in Gabby's direction, but then I noticed the homeless man looking hungrily at me. He darted toward me. My body started to run before my conscious mind gathered what was going on.

Hopping a fence and landing into a back yard, a dog barrelled after me. It almost caught me by the throat but was jerked back by the chain reaching it's max length.

I heard the crashing of the fence as it was being torn down by the homeless man. My feet picked up their pace again. I ran into a shed. I picked up a hammer, which had a busted handle, and hid in the shed waiting for the psychotic man to come barging in.

The way the guitar sounded coming from the upper floors of the two story house reminded me of the time I'd gotten high while watching "Final Destination."

I thought about calling for help but then the homeless man entered the shed. I put the hammer right between his eyes. He fell to the floor. As I looked at his face, I could see the paleness of the skin, the heavy bags under the eyes, and the fresh blood dripping from his mouth. What the fuck was going on?

My way to the house was block off by three more homeless who looked just as crazed for blood as the one I'd just taken down.

I rushed to the street where I found a bus. Wasting no time, I hopped on. Sitting in the driver's seat, I'd found the key already in the ignition. Lucky me.

Driving toward the chapel where my friends where getting married, I saw many more people running and getting mauled by these crazed creatures.

Pulling up to the chapel and rushing in, I shouted, "There is something maddening happening out there!"

Twenty faces with blank stares like that of the homeless man looked back at me. I could see the thought of lunch was on their minds.

Ongoing Contests

  • twenty-four hour short story - You gotta be quick to get this one posted in time. He posts the contest on Sunday (usually) and ends it about 48 hours later. This contest has a 2000 word limit.

  • Finish the Story Contest - The contest begins on Wednesday (usually) and end 5 days later. This contest will test your write skills with something a little different each week. Pletty of time to write something around the 500 word mark.

  • Steem Monsters Common Card Fantasy Story Contest! - Coming out roughly every week. If you enjoy card games like Magic, Yugio, and others like it, you might like this game. Write a fictional tale about the card they present in the contest and your entry just might be the one they choose to showcase.

  • Tell A Story To Me, And Win 5 SBD! Writing Contest - Kind of random when it comes out but don't worry. You will have two weeks to complete your work of art from the given prompt. Have fun!

  • Haiku - These are coming out every couple days or so. If you stuggle with rhymes, no worries. Haikus don't have to rhyme. All you need to make a haiku is five syllable on the first, seven syllables in the second line, and again back to five syllable for the last line. So easy it makes me think I'm being super product. LOL

  • Mizu No Oto - Every Image Has Its Haiku Contest - By reading the title, you should be able to guess how this haiku contest works. You're given an image and you write. I've really enjoy this contest because there are people here who've actually gone to classes to learn how to write haiku's; so if you want, you also can learn how to write quality haikus from reading the comments and critiques they and others give.

  • 50-word Challenge - This is an interesting challenge and very challenging to say the least. You only get fifty words to tell a story or a vignettes. Here is a great post that will explain the difference between the two concepts. Here is another post explanation of what a story is. Good luck, Brave Story Writer!

  • Vocab-Ability 1x1 - What happens is you are given a list of roots and the words they can be found in. You create sentence using those words and post in the comment section of the post. Your upvote for your creative work will come soon. One of the best way to increase your vocabulary is by doing these 10-15 minute exercises almost daily. What craziness will you create?
