Now that I have your attention, I thought you might like this. I am currently taking a Paranormal Romance writing class, and one of the first lessons was to write an introduction from a list paranormal elements that you believe in (or find remotely plausible) and the ones that you find just completely ridiculous. We were to take one from the ridiculous list and write an introduction. Here is my introduction:
Not everyone can do what I can do in the zombie world. One you are either a zombie, human, or a supernatural creature. Me, I am a shapeshifting zombie. Yes, you heard right. I was infected with the zombie virus when I was out on a run. Now I have a craving for brains and to howl at the moon. I have to be very careful when I shift into my wolf form. Zombies are know to lose a piece of themselves every now and then. It would be very embarrassing to change and have a foot, arm or other parts missing.
My name is Jade Everheart. My pack knows about this and is trying to deal with it, but not having it happen before is difficult to understand. It is hard to have a relationship, because I am afraid I might want to eat his brains at night. So, I don’t ever have anyone stay overnight. I am a biochemist at my day job, and am trying to find a cure for the zombie virus. It is now a year later and I have had no luck in finding a cure. I have tried to locate the mad scientist who infected me, but he died last month. it seems one of his creature killed him.
I am thinking that I could make a story out of this. It already sounds pretty good. Let me know what you think.
