Remember George Orwell’s 1984? Prepare to step into that world just a bit by visiting this link. And once you’ve settled into that space, you can then begin imagining all kinds of plot lines in this now all-too-real-just-about-to-arrive totalitarian existence. Who is your hero? Who is your enemy? Can you flip the story both ways? What if the hero was really the one running the ultra-NSA spy place? Why would he or she be doing that? Who would be the enemy?
Or maybe your story line would be more traditional. Maybe it’s the really evil people who’ve designed this awful place with really bad plans in place for total domination. Who would be your hero then? What would be his hope to even win?
All kinds of story possibilities in this particular news story.
