Zombie survival writing contest
Here's the story (Some of you on Facebook may have already seen this; but additional commentary and details is to follow, so stay tuned!):

Do you have the wits to survive a Zombie attack? If you can prove your prowess in a series of insane scenarios, full of unforeseen challenges, you may have the chance to win a prize (Awarded to the top three "Survivors" at the end of this storyline). More details to follow.

With each new chapter, winners will be chosen from submissions in the comment section of this post and announced as either "Dead" or "Alive" based on a decision from our crack team of judges.

This week will be easy.

So without further ado, survive this:

Something has happened. You have no idea what it was that has caused large chunks of the population to turn into zombified vessels of their former selves, but it doesn't matter at this point. Pulling up Google for answers on your smart phone will do you no good at this point. The Internet's gone -- kaput!

The only thing that does matter is this: A horde of partially decaying starving zombies is feverishly tearing away the barricade you and your friends have placed at the front doors of the local Walmart.

Stuck inside with nowhere else to run, it's time to come up with a kick-ass survival plan. Unfortunately, the current Obama administration has spent so much time pushing anti-gun legislation that many of the people--fearful of losing their right to bear arms--have already bought out the entire stock of guns and ammunition. This is where your quick wit and infinite creativity may be the difference between life and death.

Staying within the guidelines of the following short list of rules, do you have what it takes to survive to the end?

1. Stay in the Arena (In this case, Walmart store is your oyster)
2. Be as realistic as possible (No casting magic spells)
3. Try to keep the language appropriate and respectful (Dropping the "F" bomb will result in automatic disqualification.
4. Have fun with it. This is by no means a graded assignment, will not be viewed by the government for tax purposes, and will not reflect poorly on you as a productive member of society.


(Ammo for your Arsenal: Notice I have not specified who your friends are or how many of them there are.


I REPEAT: TO PARTICIPATE, PLEASE CLICK "LIKE" ON THE "DANIEL WAGNER CREATIVERSE" FACEBOOK PAGE, THEN LEAVE YOUR VERSION IN THE COMMENTS SECTION. COMMENTS ON THIS PAGE REGARDING A SURVIVAL STORY WILL NOT COUNT. (Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/danielwagnercreativerse ).

After this round is over (submissions due by April 25, 2013, so please tell as many of your friends as you can!), I will be taking the best suggestions and incorporating them into chapter one of a final story. After the completion of the final story, three overall winners will be selected to win a cool prize to show how AWESOME you are for kicking Zombie ass!!
 
Here they come. I can hear some god-awful moaning and growling coming from outside!
