Weekly Report: Web Comics and Writing

Weekly Report: Web Comics and Writing

I’m going to attempt weekly reports about how my week has gone with writing. My friend Nicki does this, though she also does dailies. I’ll start at weekly and see how it goes from there. I also feel if I keep track of what I do *somehow* I may see some actual progress because, hey I gotta get better then the previous week. At the moment, I don’t write/edit enough to warrant a daily report. So weeklies it is. Since…

Z is for Zombies – #AtoZChallenge

Z is for Zombies – #AtoZChallenge

Emergency sirens wailed up and down the halls. Shops closed down, trapping people inside. All other costumers where herded to the bunkers and emergency escape hatches. Portals opened up at regular intervals up and down each arcade. Out streamed the hordes of undead shamblers. Avera skidded into the break room. Vicky and Kyle were playing cards at the table. “Didn’t you hear the sirens?” “Sirens are going off nearly every day, what’s so special about this one? Or, who’s attacking…

Y is for Yesterday – #AtoZChallenge

Avera startled herself awake and into a sitting position. Her heart thumped in her chest as she gasped for air. Her room was still dark enough that she could only make out a small strip of light from under the door. After calming back down, she felt around for a tire. There were none in reach. She reached for the light switch, only to discover it wasn’t where it should have been. Extending her hands, she focused until they glowed…

X is for Xylosma Invasion – #AtoZChallenge

Avera stared through the vent out into the main arcade. She had been here for two hours so far. Out along the safety railing there was a bush, or possibly a small tree, she wasn’t entirely sure yet. What really got to her was that no one else had noticed it there yet. While making her rounds earlier she had noticed a small twig growing up through through a crack in the floor between two tiles. She almost didn’t catch…

V is for Volcano Vendor – #AtoZChallenge

Gregory Von Gillansforth spun his wide brimmed hat around in his fingers as he sat on the edge of the chair in the office. The office was cozy, and he had been in many times before. Across the table from him sat Kyle reading over a stack of papers he had brought in with him. There was the occasional flip of the page and the constant hiss of the clock on the wall, otherwise the room was silent. Gregory continued…

U is for Underwater Cavern – #AtoZChallenge

Vicky stared into black hole to the opening to the cave. “One. Why is there a cave down here? Two. Is that water I hear gurgling away down in there? Three. Are there squids!” YES. YES. NO. “That first answer doesn’t make sense.” IT IS WHERE CAVERNS GO. THEY DO NOT BELONG ON THE FIFTH FLOOR. “Fine. What about the Squids?” THERE ARE NO SQUIDS. “How about right now?” NO. “Will there be squids?” THERE ARE CRACKS THAT USE THAT…

T is for Thunder Gate Arcade – #AtoZChallenge

“So what are we looking at?” Vicky peered over the edge of the platform. Far down below, she thought she saw lava. “It appears, to be lava,” Kyle said as he leaned out over the edge of the platform as well. There was no safety railing here. “You need to get to the next platform. Like this!” Avera backed up a couple of steps as the other two turned to face her. After shifting her footing a few times, she…
