(Before I begin, I want to thank you all for your kind comments and warm wishes over the weekend. It was a wonderful, reflective week and you guys helped make that possible. The party's over. It's time to work. Thank you for your continuous, encouraging support!)
Some of you know I have a soft spot for zombies, and frankly, I've been having withdrawals. Last night finally cured my curiosity about Grimes and Crew and the looming prison shown in the background in the last shot of The Walking Dead Season 2. New characters, new dangers, and more zombies ... what more could a guy ask for?
The team in action!
The stakes are high this season. Lori is about to have her baby, Andrea is sick, Rick is something of a control freak now, and their only medical expert has lost a leg. Wow! The hits just keep coming. The one thing I didn't expect during their takeover of an overrun prison was zombies in riot gear. Kind of hard to take down armored undead wearing face shields. I squirmed like a worm. Yeah. This show is pretty much brilliant on all fronts. I'm fueled with new ideas, too.
Looking forward to watching this new season unfold!

Update: I'm glad to say the Undead WiP is officially 1/3 done (just needed a little zombie action to get the creative juices flowing)! As my usual routine, I'll spend the next week reviewing what I have so far before I move on, to be sure my bases are covered before I drive the story into its second act. I'm pretty happy with the way it's going so far, so I don't expect this quick edit will take much time. I hope not. I have a Halloween costume to put together. Can you guess what?
As always, there's an awesome week coming your way from this blog. Click back for new tropes, reviews, and
pertinent sound advice.
So my cosmic friends, how was your weekend? How's the weather?
I'm David, and who wants to go (record-setting) skydiving?
