I haven't written creatively in a while and wanted to come back to have an artistic output, heres my idea so far (sorry if it's hastily written). The world it takes place in starts on a continent that is divided by a great wall. On one side the people live harsh lives working to survive while they are forced to send half their food/goods to the other side of the wall. On the other side there is no hunger, no poverty, no predators, and no problems. They get all their needs from the other side of the wall and are content. The poor side work the same jobs as their fathers before them except for a chosen few who are smarter or more athletic who are "given a chance to leave their poor society" and train to work on the unknown other side and at their graduation their tongues (and maybe independence) are removed so they can't tell the heavenly side what is on their side of the wall. They then go to work as laborers, distributing supplies to the cities and villages of the other side or tending plants of the cities, ect. Now i need help with deciding a few things: -should the people giving away their food/resources believe they are donating to their Gods or be enslaved by harsh tyrant who secretly controls both sides from behind the scenes or something like that -should the protagonist be from the poor side and escape the graduation without getting his tongue removed and goes to the other side and is put into this world where there are the "gods" he had feared his whole life or the total unknowness of the other side. He tries to bring his plea for the pleasures of the heavenly side to help his side -or- -should the protagonist be from the heavenly side and wonder at his gardener who never speaks and wants to find out more? Also, should I include fantasy races in this? It would complicate and add more tiers to the basic 1poor side and 1heavenly side but i dont know if that'd be good? Very appreciated!
