Okay, admit it—you’ve written a dystopia.
Hey, don’t be shy. It’s cool. Between you and me, a lot of us have written a dystopia.
You may be querying it as speculative fiction or a post-apocalyptic story… and I hope that works out for you.
Maybe you thought it was the new hot trend.
Maybe your mind was blown by MT Anderson’s Feed or a certain book about both Hunger and Games?
Maybe, like me, you were so clueless that you didn’t realize the dystopia train left the station more than two years ago.
Maybe it’s really, really good.
Maybe that doesn’t matter.
With this sad reality in mind, I offer a challenge.
PROJECT DYSTOPIA REBOOT
I beg of you, it’s just sitting there—do SOMETHING with it.
No, I’m not kidding.
I am going to re-enact key scenes from my trunked dystopian THIRST week after week, even if it takes me a year. And it's going to happen on the blog and link here, on a Tumblr.
I will get my story out into the world through the magic of Playmobil... and I'm sure it will make me feel much, much better.
What will you do?
Build the scenes in lego bricks?
Draw it into a graphic novel?
Have neighborhood dogs re-enact it… for bacon?
Create a shadow-puppet masterpiece?
Send me a link to what YOU do with your post-apocalyptic-speculative-fiction or other over-hyphenated-perhaps-formerly-dystopian project.
I’d love to see it!
