Thank goodness there is a search function. I was able to track this post down.
I want to say thank you , Thank You, THANK YOU!
I've been wracking by brains for weeks trying to figure out the main conflict for the story I want to tell. I have a world, characters factions all ready to go. Just nothing would click properly.
When I read this, it all fell into place. It was something about being with the undesirables, and the crackdown.
Suddenly the whole conflict exploded in my head. Now I have the conflict, four different factions, two main characters, bad folks coming back from beyond the grave wanting to rule the world again,revolutionaries, and demi-gods. And just maybe, zombies.
