Murder! Zombies!




Of course I'm writing zombies. But I'm also writing a murder mystery where the victim turns into a zombie that runs on electricity. He's turning into such an absent minded professor, though, that I doubt he'll be much help for the poor Detective. XD

I can't wait to see this one. I bet it'll be a blast! Especially having a zombie help solve the crime.

Yeah, I'm starting to think that I need to poke my zombie into being more interested in it all.

And now I am thinking that maybe I need to finish this with evidence instead of the 'shock the murder that he is still alive.' I was just narrowing my options before. :D

I've been slowly plotting Homicide Victims Rarely Talk to Police out. I've created my Cast, but I still have to write out all of the details for them.

I think I also need to go through and write out my evidence. I've upped the victim count to 3, but maybe I need to do 4 or 5. This is a kind of a smart guy, he'd know that he needed to kill more people to disguise that he was really aiming for this one group. XD

Oh, the angry drunk guy can be a victim. And then, of course, I think the actress. And of course they will turn into zombies, too, because of various reasons (including maybe Ansel injecting the zombie virus into one of them... or maybe both) XD

I started writing out each character's Motive and Clue that he or she Holds and took another step closer to figuring out the outline. So many more details came to light that I can't wait to explore during the novel.

Now I need to decide whether I want to use whatever POV I need or just stick to Julian Saylor, the lead detective, and Ansel Bishop Sessions, the murder victim turned zombie... Prolly will go with the duo, but maybe it would be better to shift POVs..... :confused:

Either one could work. The duo may be better because then the readers won't confuse what each character knows.

It also means less character voices to learn before writing.

I might just end up keeping with just Julian, I'll have to see.

Doot doot doot, changed the title of my thread.

I finished my character building with motives, clues, and evidence and started on creating an outline. I'm using the Sequence function in LSB, so I had to make icons. I really like my Murder! icon, so I decided to apply that image change to my thread. :D

I definitely adore the sequence function. And I do think someone should post a thumbnail of their sequential outline ;)

(Also, I do like your icon!)

I got 1700 words, woooo! I have decided to be positive instead of sighing about my plans gone awry. XD Helped watch my nephew and niece, which meant sacrificing some writing time, but I still got an awesome job done.

I have 1780 words for Julno, but what you don't see is that I wrote 1780 words for my Camp novel as well ;) So, on the whole I did pretty good.

So far the murder mystery party has begun, but I have yet to kill off and zombify Ansel. XD

Also, I painted my nails. Blue with red accent nails and glitter for all. 8-)

Here's the breakdown on my wordz: I wrote 1577 for Homicide today, giving me 3357 total. XD

Not super awesome word counts, but I wrote 280 words on my phone while watching tv tonight, so I am good - considering I thought I was brain dead.

Also, I wrote another K for my Camp novel and used my 750 words to plot out a short story I need to write.

Right now my Word Count Ranking is 42. I am the answer to everything. 8-)

Hehe, 42 is an awesome number to be. Better keep yourself there!

Don't worry about plans going awry. You have so many more days to zoom up. Maybe some 10k/5 challenges?

I've decided for the first week I'm not gonna worry like ZOMG about word counts, but I definitely will need some oomph later on.

But, tomorrow I have a 9:30 parade, so I won't return to the house until the afternoon. It's a fun parade and it's in the area that I stole to use as a good setting for my Key to Heaven novel. 8-) (I get to see some of the Gates to Heaven, squee)

And then on Sunday I have an late afternoon parade far enough away that I need to leave in the afternoon and won't get back until late.

Good news is that I'm not driving and I have my iphone. :D I'll totally writes on it XD

Anyway, I'm supposed to be doing my 1K in Key to Heaven now. *gets back to work on writing the conflict between angels and a demon while listening to Along Came Bialy*
