I'm considering taking part in National Novel Writing Month this November. The goal of NANOWRIMO
is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. I have a Lost Zombies story I want to write. The story is told from the perspective of an individual who has first-hand knowledge of what happened at the testing facility mentioned in the LZ timeline
. The story would shed light on how the flu mutated and eventually spread to the general public. The story would also explore who was involved in the mutation of the virus and why. Structurally the story would be formatted as a collection of letters and notes
written from a single perspective. My goal is to create a collection of entires that appear as though they were found in the Lost Zombies universe and which flow together to tell a compelling and cohesive story.
This is a story I've been thinking about for several years now. Elements of this story have been floating around my head since before the site was launched in 2008. This would not be a typical community-created LZ project. This is something I would write, which would fill in some of the gaps in the Lost Zombies timeline. However, I would still like to involve the LZ community. Here's my thought...
What if I were to ask you guys what aspects of the LZ story you want to hear more about and then I work those into the story?
"I want to know more about Camp St. Teresa" or "I want to know who patient zero is."
My question and the point of this post is to determine if this is something you would like to read? And if you would you like to make recommendations for the story?
If the answer to either question is yes, I'd like to hear you thoughts.
