    Need help writing a dystopia

    Discussion in 'Plot Development' started by reiroc, May 10, 2009.

    Basically I need to write a three page short story that depicts a dystopian society.

    The guidelines :
    1. A futuristic society (near or distant future)
    2. A current trend that will be the overpowering norm in the society
    3. A central governing power that is omniscient
    4. A dehumanized society that lives in fear, terror or ignorance
    5. A protagonist who refuses to outwardly or inwardly conform
    6. An outcome in which the protagonist fails in his attempt to elude, rebel against, or question the principles of the government in power

    You should include descriptive passages and salient features in order to acquaint the reader with the physical setting, mindset, and habits of the members who live in the dystopian society.

    I've been trying to come out with a plot for the whole weekend, but everything that comes to mind seems either too cliche or just bad. If you could help me out brainstorming idea it wouldbe appreciated.
