It seems like you guys (And me. Again. Sorry.) kind of abandoned the whole “Choose Your Own Adventure” thing. That’s a shame, it was gonna be pretty wicked. Some of you were going to be figuring out how to keep alive in the Zombie Apocalypse from the loving arms of the state prison system! Which I think would’ve been mega interesting. Regardless, it’s been an unprecedented period of inactivity, and for that I apologize. My bad, you guys. Seriously.
Tabling the novelization approach, I’ve decided to go back to basics. CYOA was impractical, abstract and not really an idea that lends itself to our end goal: Preparation. Over the next several weeks, Sex Machete is going to be shifting its focus onto weaponry in a big way. I’ll be highlighting specific weapons as well as classes of weapons, sorting them by usefulness using a simplified ratings scale and breaking down their pros, cons, and specific uses (the Oxford Comma is a weapon one uses for times when being pretentious is necessary).
I won’t be so bold this time. I hate to say it, but I’m a busy lady. With both jobs, school, a move on the horizon, let’s face it- I know I’m going to survive. Your survival isn’t exactly my top priority. I’ll update and post regularly, but to get me on a schedule is what leads me into disaster. I miss one deadline, I get sad, we end up with these lengthy lulls. That’s why I need to know you guys are reading this, need to know this is as important to you as it is to me. Or as entertaining. If you don’t respond, I forget to write and the cycle continues. This project is really something that’s close to me and something I want to become bigger than myself. People say zombies are a fad, zombies and waning, whatever. I don’t do this because it’s trendy. (Not to hipster out, but I was doing this before it was trendy anyhow… so bite me. Pun intended.) I do this because I think it’s important (because I’m crazy?). I do this because I think it can translate to other things. Summer’s coming up and weather-permitting, I’d like to start getting into the nitty-gritty from a combat/exercise routine standpoint. That was originally to be the main focus of the site. It still is… I just want to get you guys prepped for that first.
So, there it is. All out on the table for you. Are you in this? Can you check in with the site regularly, follow my Twitter updates, help me if I ask you for prompts, comment on articles and let me know what you’re thinking?
I’m not doing this for myself, Machettes. I will survive.
