    When the end times are near and humanity turns against itself for the sake of survival, one woman  and her crazy, undead cat will be the difference between becoming zombie bait and staying alive. Zombie Zina is like none other in this bleak apocalypse; half zombie, half human she has …

    Paradise Lost


    Backwards, forwards; rewind, play. No matter which direction you view this story, your heart will be aching from the axe wounds it will leave in your heart. An impressive feat from a mere video game trailer. While Dead Island the game isn’t explicitly about storytelling, the game trailers always find …

    The main insights for the article are as follows:

    step 1: Owning your insights

    It is interesting to gather from  reading step 1  that while the memory of the event  does not change, the storyteller’s perspective and the personal meaning evolve over time based on the storyteller’s own experiences …

    On the Road from Kald to Hirane


    A grim silence lingered, excess from the cries that preoccupied the air moments earlier. Shattered from an exhausting battle, neither had won, both distressed from defeat.
