The Undead Submachine Gun

J. Darko is hosting a writing contest based on your choice of five prompts. Per her blog,
1. Pick a prompt
2. Email me (at darko_undead@hotmail.com) to inform me of your intent to participate
3. Write me a killer fuck’n horror story!
4. Email your polished final-draft as an attachment

Prompt 1: It’s the apocalypse, baby. Yes, your end-of-the-world event must include zombies. However, there’s a catch. The zombies must take a back seat to another pressing horror that your main character(s) will face while also having to deal with the undead horde in the backdrop. This “other horror” must be something tangible and assail your character(s) at some point in your story. How and if your character(s) prevail in the end is up to you.

Prompt 2: A horror story inspired by music.

Prompt 3: Hell on Earth.

Prompt 4: Fan-fiction…“The Walking Dead” inspired narratives.

Prompt 5: Fan-fiction…vigilante horror.

Midnight, February 31st, 2011.

Visit The Undead Submachine Gun for all the gory details on specific prompt requirements, rules and prize info.

I'll be writing something based on prompt #1. C'mon and join me on any one of the 5 choices.

She’s got some really great prizes, so get writing!!
