Help! I am working on my senior thesis for my degree in Creative Writing and I am lost. I love writing (obviously) but my story is just lacking some pizzaz. I want to write something to do with the society as we know it falling down. My initial idea was an EMP knocking out the electrical grid, and then maybe throwing a few nukes in there. I know, not subtle. However, that was like the viral "thing" a couple of years ago. So, I'm looking for fresh new ideas. My favorite part about stories like this is the idea of the world not working by the same rules anymore. No one cares about debts or credit scores or whether or not you have a license or aged 21. It's fascinating and freeing. I want to capitalize on that. What's your favorite way for the world as we know it to end? Any ideas for story brainstorming?
