55 Word Challenge: Week 53

Welcome back to #55WordChallenge! I took a break last week and I am back and feeling refreshed. But wow... last week I felt like a zombie, unable to write, tackling things being thrown at me left and right... I felt caged. Which brings me to this weeks prompt.


Yep, that's write, I have a zombie theme and some great pictures to go with it.

For those that are uninitiated, the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less. Not an easy task, but fun and I have been blown away by some of the entries. See for yourself, past contests can be found here. The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon Thursday. The story is based on one of three photo prompts. My only request is no porn. I don't want to hear graphic details. If it is erotic, make it titillating, not obscene. I know that can be done and done well.

The story is to be posted in the comment section below, along with your twitter handle or email address, so I can contact you if you are the winner. If you don't want to list your email address, send it to me at I promise I won't distribute it, but if you are the winner I need a way to notify you and to send you your prize. I am also going to be bringing back the #55WordChallenge Bumper Sticker.

It will take a few weeks for them to be delivered to me, but this will again be a monthly prize. I expect to begin awarding them at the end of May.

And what does the winner get? This badge for one... actually I may make a special badge for the challenge. If so, I will display it tomorrow. For 2 a copy of Undead Ahead Zombies. 3 Honorable Mentions will get a copy of The Second Wave: A Post Apocalyptic Tale.

If anyone is interested in contributing a prize, a book, cover art, whatever you want, let me know and we will work something out. If you are an artist that would like to have your work featured, let me know!
