My zombie story is finished. Or at least I think it is. It's ~3500 words.
I'd like to get a couple of opinions on it. Comments on the pacing, the action, the language, etc. would be welcome. Something like this.
As with everything I write, I'm concerned that the story's merits are outweighed by its flaws. That is to say, I'm afraid it stinks. If it does, I'd like to have a clearer understanding of why it stinks, so I can do better next time.
If I thought that anyone reads this blog, this would be the point at which I would ask for volunteers, offer a critique in return, etc. Since this is an isolated backyard, facing the old freight tracks adjacent to a depopulated cul-de-sac, I'm going to have to find readers somewhere else.
