Novel Dreamers – August 2019

Novel Dreamers is a monthly writing challenge created by Dagna Theatre. Each month several talented writers (and Shaun) are set a task to write about a specific idea with a 1500 word limit. At the end of the month there’s a poll and a winner (not Shaun) is chosen.

August’s Novel Dreamers challenge was to write like you were running out of time. I’d been reading Walkaway by Cory Doctorw and so had a bit of an end of the world and horrible rich person vibe I needed to get out so I wrote about the last people alive after the world has been destroyed by global warming. Cheery huh!
