I love the zombie genre. All of it. From Romero to Kirkman, it’s all great. So, I was very excited to receive the assignment to review an early draft of Zombified: Book 1: The Head Hunter by author Kindra Sowder with (“The Walking Dead” alumni) Santiago Cirilo.
Before we dive in, let me start by breaking down the key elements that make a good narrative: Characters, Plot, and Story.
Yes, Other Todd?
Aren’t Plot and Story the same thing?
No, Other Todd. And that’s why I never invite you anywhere. ‘Cause you’re a big dum-dum.
The difference between plot and story is simply this…
Plot is what happens, Story is why it happens OR what it all means.
Do you have any examples?
I sure do, Other Todd. Please stop hijacking my article!
