Write about the unsettling calmness in the first hours before the zombie apocalypse erupts.

Zombies are generally associated with mayhem, but it’s the uniquely chilling quiet before the storm that can truly heighten the horror. Develop a narrative focusing on this eerie stillness, building tension and contrasting it with the impending chaos to create a bone-chilling horror aspect in a zombie apocalypse. What does this silence look like, sound like, feel like? How do your characters react to it?
