First of all, I'll say that everything has been done before so it's not so much of a question of 'has it been done' but 'how can it be done'.. I'd like to express the importance of a certain worldly known idea in a short story or novella but the problem would be going forward; having little plot. What do you think are some important things to add into a story where there is one important theme and the characters are only there to show how this certain idea is true and unavoidable? We've all dwelled on a certain thought and wondered if it can work as a piece of fiction. I think it would be an effective story with the right things incorporated. What are your thoughts?
