If Every Story Were Told Like a... Dystopia

In the spirit of my recent post, If Every Story Were Written Like a Cliche Romance, I'm tackling another genre: Dystopia. 

How would stories be different if they were all filled with all-powerful overseers? Or violently enforced, extremely controlling rules? Forced conformity? I'm getting all creeped-out just thinking about it.

Oh, my word. How did you ever think of that? Have you been working on CN lately? :)

Although this post is super hysterical, I really just wanted to send you an email but your word recognition thing keeps foiling me in my attempts :(

In my third attempt at writing you - it's gotten much, much shorter:
1. You totally rocked the MC thing, even though I could only see your face above the podium half the time :D
2. I would LOVE your kids' definitions of genres (maybe you could post on blog?)
3. Can I talk about SOME of what you talked about in your romance class on my blog if I totally link people to your website and amazon author page?
4. I think that's it.
And did I say how awesomely funny you were? Even though I used a (gasp) adverb?? said...


(Not really, you know, since my floor isn't, you know, very clean, since I spent a week away while my husband and kids were still there, you know?)

BTW, your romance video at Storymakers was hilarious! And I agree with Jolene - you should post your kids'genre definitions here. Too funny.

Jolene & Ask Aunt Alice --

I am working on getting all the videos & the funniness from Storymakers up on my website. My post-conference brain mushiness is conspiring against me, and it is taking a little longer than anticipated.
