[Linkage] Z is for Zombie Apocalypse

Note: My A-Z theme is linkage. Every day (at 7:00 a.m. EST), I'm going to list three helpful industry links per letter, and then I'll ask for suggestions in the comments—that way, we can pool our resources! :)

Z is for Zombie Apocalypse:
What? If the zombie apocalypse happens, it'll affect the writing industry! It's not like I couldn't think of anything else to fit here... *cough* 

  • The CDC actually has a page about the zombie apocalypse. I find this hilarious.
  • The Huffington Post suggests "Zombie Fads Peak When People Are Unhappy".
  • I got sidetracked by the Google results for "zombie apocalypse," and let me just say, there is some weird stuff out there. Let's skip the third link and have an end-of-the-challenge dance party!
 
A-to-Z is over! Who's ready for a nap?

I remember seeing the CDC page before. Too funny.
*shaking my groove thang*

mr seckman said...

We must be miserable. I have never seen so much zombie stuff!

C. Lee McKenzie said...

Nap? That would be me who's ready for one of those. Congrats on a job well done.

Carrie-Anne said...

My little brother loves zombies. He's even written some zombie movie scripts for some indie movie company some friends of his have.

Carrie Butler said...

Soon. Very soon. I have a blogiversary and some friends' cover reveals/blog tours to do first. Then I am gone! LOL

Carrie Butler said...

Well, I have half of that equation down... ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Woohoo! *busts out the Macarena for no reason*

Carrie Butler said...

I guess so!

Carrie Butler said...

You too, Lee! :)

Carrie Butler said...

That's awesome! :)

Rhonda Parrish said...

Dude, I am all over a nap. I love zombies but this month has been so crazy I feel like I've been turned into one. No dancing, just napping :)

David List said...

Thanks for all your advice through April! Going to google zombie apocalypse myself now!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

If you want to look up on some real 'zombies' Carrie, check out Zombees tracking website. I told Jolene Perry about them after seeing it on cable news. It's about bees infected by a parasite that makes them display zombie-like behaviour. Oh and congrats on making it to the end of this challenge and thanks for all the links.

Oh and virtual dance party! *Imagine myself dancing like a maniac*

Nick Wilford said...

Haha! Same here, Rhonda. I think we all deserve that nap. :)

Ack! I think I have a new thing to be paranoid about... LOL

Thanks, Sheena-kay! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Carrie Butler said...

*Grins* But bad puns are the best!

jamieayres.com said...

HA! I'll share my cookies and coffee with you with the zombies arrive as a thanks for all your helpfulness :-)

Donna K. Weaver said...

That page on the CDC website is hilarious. I'm glad someone over there has a sense of humor.

Carrie Butler said...

Yay! Maybe we can convince the zombies to indulge in cookies instead of brains. :D

Carrie Butler said...

Me too! :)

Mark Murata said...

Remember to take two sharpened #2 pencils with you, in case you need to fight your way into some writing time.

Carrie Butler said...

That's a brilliant idea! :D

Milo James Fowler said...

It's so true: if we're prepared for the zombies, we'll be prepared for anything. Congratulations on a successful finish!

Carrie Butler said...

Even the A-Z challenge! *Grins* Thanks, Milo!

klahanie said...

He Carrie,

I do understand how much you have um been eagerly awaiting one of my highly collectable comments. Or something like that :)

I must hurry with my comment. Well done for completing a challenge I would never participate in. Right, really must go...this comment was typed in front of a dead studio audience and they are headed towards...ME!!!

Carrie Butler said...

Whew! I can finally breathe again. ;)

Thanks, Gary! And don't worry about the zombies. Penny will protect you.

Probably.

RUN!
