Lush #DailyPrompt #amwriting

There is plenty. Of everything: history, people, murders, treacheries, wars, horror and beauty. The world is a lush stage for the writer: a space where subjects abound, where heroes, villains, creators, liars, assassins wear the most amazing camouflages. Over all this, the dream machines reign supreme. The last man on Mars, the destruction of the Moon, deeper still under the oceans. The Space Station, the Ark… No adventure is impossible, for this is not only the society of spectacle, the entire planet is acting, as if Earth knew what is expected of her.

Of course it can go wrong, even, very wrong. The big meteorite may well materialise (do you remember the Death Star, emerging from Hyperspace?), and then what? Assassins do roam the streets, the Devil never gives up…

Do we lack inspiration? Surely not, if anything is missing it is our (collective) inability to make sense of it, and turn all this into great literature…

  1. We have to take the explosive and random parts of nature, like earthquakes and even creation, and put them in a structured format with plot, character arcs, acts, scenes, turning points, and so on. Not so easy. Does the turning point have to be at the midpoint? Do all characters have to be a reflection of the protagonist? This is where I’m at, destroying my beautiful story bit by bit.
