I had a dream last night that woke me up it was so terrifying. Of course, describing it here won’t do it justice, but there were some elements that I’m going to jot down to explore in my zombie fiction. In this dream, the zombies were out there, but they were not the biggest threat. They were so scattered, that people could still come and go to prepare before the zombies took over. The biggest threat was human scavengers. They were shooting people in alleys behind houses, breaking in wherever they saw people were hiding, killing them and taking their stuff. In my dream we had to keep the lights off and hide in our houses when scavenger parties walked by our windows.
