Today’s Prompt: Would You Survive A Zombie Apocalypse?

A few years ago, there were reports in the news where people experienced zombie-like behaviors. Some people were afraid that there was going to be a zombie apocalypse. Now that there hasn’t been reported stories of these undead phenomenons the hype and fear has decreased. With the popularity of the TV show and graphic novel series The Walking Dead, along games like Left 4 Dead, The Last of Us, Day Z, the zombie craze is still fresh.  I want to make today’s prompt interesting and I’m going to do this two ways. You’re free to choose both options.

1. I want you to write a descriptive essay on what you would do if a zombie apocalypse were to happen. How would you react. How you would prepare for this situation? Where would you go? Who would you save? Are you currently learning survival tips and tricks?

– – – OR – – –

2. I want you to write a short, fictional, scenario based story about a zombie apocalypse occurring in real-time. Think about plausible reasons on how and why a zombie apocalypse could happen. I want at least 1500 to 3,000 words for this short story. There’s no time length on when you can respond to this second option. Short stories take time, planning and editing, so no pressure for you followers. This second option is designed to flex your short story muscles so have fun with this.

As always you can submit your responses in the comments section or on your blog by linking my URL to your response. Happy writing and enjoy your day followers!
