Dawning of the Dead Summary

Dawning is a survival horror piece I started a surprisingly long time ago. The idea behind it was to write and publish to the web a chapter at a time- I was working fast, enjoying where the story took me (none of the characters seemed to do what I'd intended), and I didn't stop to edit- so there are probably numerous typing errors in there.

Clicking on the links take you to a site called Deviant Art where the chapters are hosted. If there's a problem with any of the links let me know in the comments.

Chapter One is here and the others can be found in the links field to the right (or left if this blog template ever changes).


Been a long time since I posted here. If you've stumbled across this page somehow it's a collection of my own fiction writing. Not a representative sample by any means but the main body of work (the horribly titled Dawning of the Dead) was placed on-line for two reasons- to allow it to be read and to offer myself another incentive to keep writing.

Since my last post (it really, really doesn't seem like 2005!) I've managed to write very little of that particular story, although I do tinker with it from time to time. It hit an awkward point and due to a combination of circumstances I lost my grip on it. It will be back some day!

My main love in writing is horror- survival horror being of particular interest. I don't really want to see a zombie apocalypse but I am curious about what would happen if it did take place. If you're into that sort of thing you might want to check out the
All Things Zombie forum. It seems a bit mad when you first read it but trust me, not all of the posters honestly believe that zombies are about to take over the world. Just some of us.

Anyway, I hope to add some more writing here soon. Maybe just the odd snippet but there should be some new material now and then.

Hope someone out there enjoys it.
