...one word at a time...

Postby Tyler Anderson » Wed Nov 14, 2007 7:02 am

Well, since I am back up and writing again, I thought I would make a writing blog. As of now I am working on the third draft of my new zombie horror story which I am writing for a contest. The theme of it is "zombies at the workplace". The winners get some money (not much) and they get publisized in a anthology book about zombies at the workplace (thats what I really want).

So, I am also distressed becuase I missed my high school deadline for the lit mag. But, I also didn't know if my storys would have cut it, somtimes they are too dark. But I guess I'll never know...

Zombies in the workplace, huh?

Sounds like a normal day around here . . ..

Haha, that was the whole point of it I think. Because work feels mindless somtimes right? Kind of like...you guessed it folks...ZOMBIES! :wink: Ha.

So, I am thinking that I will have one of my english teachers read my story. If any of you have the time to read it, please do. The first draft is up here, its called "Horror At The Office". I have had my friends read it, and the reaction has been pretty positive. But nothing can beat the crit I get from the wordtrip gang. :D

Also, I wrote some lyrics for a song. Here they are:

Verse 1: Saved not from slaughter
Ammonia turn water
Look for a hero
Absolutely zero

Verse 2: Find yourself a gun
The evil man has won
Save two bullets though
Tonight, we don’t have to die slow

Break: Hey, if there’s no tomorrow
Then why can’t I go out by my own hand?
Lets, save ourselves from sorrow
Before this forest turns to sand

Verse 3: What more can I say
This is the end of days
Count out for me please
While I will give this trigger a squeeze

Chorus: They said, Tie me down Tie me down
Let’s throw these stones through the ground
Kill ‘em dead, Kill ‘em dead
The ones with marks on their heads
Shoot ‘em high, Shoot ‘em high
Shut the sun out of the sky
But pretty please pretty please
Wear a grin before you squeeze

Let me know what you guys think of this too. I might put it up under poetry if I have time today.
