Up For Consideration
During the day, while I was avoiding the idea of editing anything I’ve worked on already, I thought of an idea. The concept would basically be just a fun exercise to keep my mine working, creatively. It would basically require me to create a second blog and post fictional entries on it.
The concept would be the blog entries of an individual who loves in a world that’s undergoing a supernatural event. Granted, the suspension of disbelief would be in the fact that if all Hell’s breaking loose, who exactly would take the time to post a blog about it.
What I can’t decide on is what the event in question should be. I have a few ideas, but am not quite sure which would be the best one to pursue.
I could always do zombies, but then, just about everyone does zombies. Even my third National Novel Writing Month project dealt with zombies. But, it’s still in consideration because you can see how the situation gets worse and worse as the blog goes along.
Vampires and werewolves also crossed my mind, though I sort of moved them down on the potential scale. It seems less likely that there would be a national situation involving either. If I scale it down, there is still something there.
The idea I am leaning towards the most is a Godzilla/Cloverfield concept, since it seems that giant monster rampages are not highly represented in literature. I also see an angle to such a story that would make a personal blog a little more acceptable.
I have eliminated alien invasion as a possibility. The concept covers far too much of the world for me to want to tackle, even keeping it close. But, spawning from the alien invasion idea is one of first contact.
Anyhow, does anyone know if something like this had been attempted before? If it has, do you happen to remember a link so that I can check it out to see what others have done?
