A few weeks ago, my wife and I subscribed to Netflix. We're not sure why we kept putting it off. It's not like we rent a lot of movies, but sometimes the current television programs just stink.
The first thing I watched was The Walking Dead. I blew through Season 1 in about 3 days--holy crap! I am hooked. I finished Season 2 Wednesday night and cannot wait for Season 3 to come out (I believe I may be waiting a little while). I don't watch an enormous amount of television. I usually watch a little while I relax for bed.
Last Saturday, I watched an episode in Season 2 (right near the middle) which really tugged at my heartstrings--yes, I admit, I was shocked and even shed a tear (for those who have seen the show know what I'm talking about so I won't spoil it).
Then, of course, there's the upcoming movie starring Brad Pitt: World War Z, based on the amazing book by Max Brooks.
Zombies, zombies, zombies.
A thought occurred to me that I, in fact, had already written a zombie novel. It's not your typical zombie apocalypse novel, but rather more like The Walking Dead than World War Z, as it focuses on a small group of people.
It is this book that I will be editing next . . . once I complete my final edits of Beholder's Eye--for the brief moment, I am putting off self-publishing because there's a small press I know that has opened submissions for the month of June, so I'm going to try them first. It may be a long shot (isn't everything in a publishing world a long shot?), but at least I'm going to do it and submit. If it doesn't pan out, then it's on to self-publishing.
I have over 6,500 words written in my inspirational novelette. I know, I know, I haven't written much this week, but it's been a busy week. I typically write in the mornings for 1-2 hours, and this week most mornings have been filled with diabetes camps and doctors appointments.
