It's day three of Zombie Week and I'm offering you the main course of the feastivities, the Zombie Bite Calculator.
If bitten, how long before you become infected? I would turn into a zombie in one hour and 14 minutes. How about you?
The Zombie Bite Calculator comes courtesy of The Oatmeal. If you haven't checked out Matthew Inman's site then it is well worth a visit. Particular favourites of mine are the twitter spelling test and how many germs live on your mobile phone? There also some hilarious comic pages, with topics such as how to use a semicolon and the five phases of caffeine intake.
Now for some news:
My 6000 word tribute to William Shatner, Why Do Aliens Love Iowa?, has been accepted for the Static Movement's Tribute to the Stars Anthology.
I'm ecstatic about this acceptance for many reasons. Firstly, at just over 6000 words it is the longest short story I've written. Secondly, it's the first story I've written with a particular person in mind, in this case William Shatner. If you don't already know about this anthology, the editor is looking for stories that are written as if you were making a movie and your favourite actor/actress will be playing the lead part. Thirdly, all the actors/actresses featured will be sent a copy of the anthology. I don't know if William Shatner will read it - I'm sure he gets sent lots of things - but you never know.
See you on Friday, when coffee and zombie dating will feature on the menu.
