Write something that takes place in the major city of your choosing, in the year 2110.
The electrician came by this afternoon, hopefully for the last time, and hooked us up with an outlet for the stove we bought at the thrift store a while back. And now we know it actually works!
The plumber is coming tomorrow morning to install the toilet and do a couple other odd jobs. After that, it's just us and the carpenter to finish what's left to do.
I am starting to get excited about NaNoWriMo. A few minutes ago I decided how I'm going to count down the final seven days before November hits... but I'll save that for Monday, when it shall begin.
New York, 2110
The invasion had taken us all completely off guard. Looking back now, it's embarrassing how obvious the signs were. But back then we were just too busy looking the other way. Which made it real easy for them to stab us in the back.
We still don't know where or when the technology they used against us came from. At first there was talk that the Russians were behind it, but then word came that they'd be invaded as well. So our wounded gazes turned to the Chinese (also innocent - and about to be invaded, as it turned out), still oblivious to the simple truth:
We brought it on ourselves.
They patrol the streets now, looking for people like me. Rebels. Mad men. Survivors.
They search from above, their war cries freezing the bravest and strongest of men in their tracks.
So we keep to the shadows. We move at night and hide during the day. We scavenge what we can. Work together when it's safe to do so. We pray.
We pray that this new era of the Animal Kingdom will be a short one.
