I have always wanted to write a novel, and because I’m infatuated with zombies, I figured that I should write about the zombie apocalypse (I might as well have fun while I’m writing, no?). I wanted to write about a character that helps people at any cost. In too many zombie stories, the majority of the characters just look out for themselves and their loved ones. But people don’t usually go out of their way to help strangers. My novel is about a friendly lunatic whose dream is to save the world from zombies.
I started writing my novel on August 4th, 2012, and I finished right before my thirtieth birthday on September 4th. I woke up every morning at 5:00 and wrote for two hours before going into the office. It was hard work, but I loved every minute of it. Writing about zombies is so much fun, and I learned a lot about preparing for a zombie invasion. Some people plan for retirement, while others plan for the zombie apocalypse. I’m not saying that IRAs are a bad idea, but when the zombies invade, you’ll be much happier with your bug-out bag and survival supplies (those stocks and bonds aren’t going to do you any good).
I digress. So I finished writing my novel, and then I edited…and edited…and edited. It only took me one month to write the book, but I spent five months on editing. Once I was happy with the story, I decided it was ready to be published. My novel, “Jordan’s Brains: A Zombie Evolution,” is finally finished, and it will be available soon.
