Boudreau’s Birthday Bash Word Count Writing Contest: Update – Day One.

Wow, I feel like Jack Bauer with this sick title I’ve got going on here. Wait. Do you hear the ticking of the clock? Yeah. I don’t either.

So this first day of the contest…I decided to pick up my long lost Zombie Novel. Yes, a Zombie Novel. Started as a joke, then urged on by my rabid zombie-crazed husband and sister I am now continuing it.  And let no one say I back down from a challenge.

The great pie eating contest of  2008? Done. Take that lemon meringue.

The Crystal Pepsi Challenge between me and a Unicorn? Swilled. And gargled. Mission accomplished, you horse with a horn. Well, guess what you don’t have? A medal.

The Duck Duck Goose Debacle in 4th grade? Yeah. Stephanie Smith has a metal plate in her skull. Guess my hands were too hard for her soft cranium.

And so…I land in this writing challenge. Update for day one, you ask?

Well…only a mere 3,542 words.

Hmm. I rock the boat. Baby.

Once a famous icon of the 1990's, Crystal now suffers from an eating disorder and has an intense fear of sock puppets.

    Wow, that is awesome! I’ve never read a zombie novel. I did read the Survival Guide, you know, to be prepared.

    May I read yours?

    I read the Survival Guide and World War Z and didn’t think they were that amazing. I want to add that I’d love to read your zombie novel as well. I think it’ll be much better than those 2.

    I must agree…those two books are entertaining…but about as far as the cover page. Not sure how mine will compare but you will be free to read if you like! I promise lots of guns, body parts and cursing.

  • I am breathing deep and sharing the first line of my (currently) unpublished book - "The Ramblin' Hand of Sherry Anne." After rewriting 75% of my last draft in three months, edits are finally fucking finished and I feel calm and peaceful and light. Typically, I tend to not want to share for fear of failure BUT I am freaking psyched. No more white knuckling this novel. Here goes nothin'. #teasertuesday #amwriting #amediting #manuscript #writerlife #writer #writermama #novel #publishedorbust
