Recently I was inspired to write, of all things a zombie story. the inspiration for the Piece, was Adrians Undead Diary
the story is technically a fan fiction piece, but only in the sense that it shares the same fictional world and rules as those of AUD, Adrian’s Undead Diary. What started as a small exercise in writing turned into a six hundred page story. and is continued in a second Story called “Dark Tide Rising”, and the work in progress “A Storm Before Dawn” the third book in the trilogy. all three story’s have spawned several side fiction stories as well.
Id like to thank Lauren, Ontos, Killswitch, and many others for encouraging me to finish. as well as Nathan and Nicole for suggestions and help. now before a car load of undead clowns arrive, lets move on.
“The Clock Runs Down, is the story of Jared Stone a wilderness guide and his friends, who escape from Nashville, trying to survive and find a Safe Haven from the Disaster sweeping over the world.
Their Journey takes them from Nashville Tennessee to the East Coast, scavenging for supplies and exploring the ruins of a dead world. Along the way they discover that things are not what they seem, there is more to the end of the world than they had thought.
This is not your typical zombie story in many ways, for starters I am fed up with the idiots that infest 99 percent of all horror movies and books.(particularly zombie stories.) The endings of those same works, usually leave me with a why did I bother to watch or read this, it ended exactly the same as every other version. with all the same mistakes.
so I wrote my own, where hope was something the characters cling to, as well as their basic humanity in a world turned upside down. This is a story about some of the small percentage of people who lived when 6.9 billion died.
sounds grander than it might be LOL but I tried, and Im still working on the story trying to revise and tweak constantly to make it better. so take a look and see what you think.
Warning.. this story contains, Adult language, Violence, and possibly other things that might offend. If your a child or you just don’t like that that kind of thing, don’t look consider it Rated R.
for those willing to brave being offended, thanks for Reading and I hope you enjoy.
On to Act one part one.
