New story - "Life Expectancy"

This is written almost verbatim from a dream I had last night.

    The 'pry open a moment and climb inside' line is a keeper.

  2. Beautiful. I don't know what spurred on this dream, but the story is beautiful.

  3. I so often have dreams where I can't do something I really, really want to-- the whole neighborhood learned how to fly, or transform, or teleport, and I'm just stuck having no idea how to do it.
    But the desire to split a moment and make it stretch... that's right out of waking life. Such a wonderful combination

  4. I'll read right after I ask you this question, otherwise I'll forget it: how do zombies turn humans into zombies? I know vampires bite them but they don't drink all their blood, or at least that's how they do it in Interview With The Vampire. but what about zombies?

  6. Dee: I think generally zombies infect people pretty much by any kind of blood/body fluid contact. If you get bitten in any way, you become a zombie. So uh...watch out.

  7. Guys, thank you so much for the feedback on this story. I pump out alot of shorts, some of them pretty "minor", so I never know quite what to expect, and I don't always get much response at all. But when people actually take the time to say they liked it, it's really encouraging and keeps me going. To all the "regulars" out there who hang out with me in the interweb ether, thanks for sticking around, you are appreciated!
