Notes on Starting a Dystopian Novel | The Spectacle. I’ve started writing a dystopian YA. I’ve read dozens of these books and finally have an idea of my own which I feel compelled to write. While I am good at plotting and cliff-hangers, it will be a challenge to build a new world. When I’ve written a SEER or DEAD GIRL books I already know the world and paranormal rules. But world-building is new to me and I have to do more than plot a story; I have to create a new world. I’m having to consider language, setting, history, rules of society and much more. I could spend months creating all the background for this book, but my impatient style is to just jump right into the first chapter. How to start my book?

All very different openings, but each sets the scene for a new and different world. So now I’m thinking…should I start with dialogue? I have lots of notes about my society and I have an idea of where the book is going, including some dramatic plot points. Like this: Like Loading... List of dystopian music, TV programs, and games.

As we walked back to the longhouse, Chabok, who was in front of me, suddenly stopped on the track and raised his blowpipe, quickly inserting a dart into the mouthpiece and packing the end with a small twist of raw cotton.

To one side and above him, about twelve meters away, a squirrel was scampering on a branch. I wanted to see Chabok bring it down with a dart but at the same time I had an almost uncontrollable urge to cry out and frighten the animal away. It seemed such a small squirrel. Chabok aimed his blowpipe, and I felt myself holding my breath until he shot. 'Thip! ' The Temiar blowpipe is normally some two meters long and made from one single length of bamboo. The poison with which the darts are smeared is a mixture of poisonous saps from jungle trees and creepers.
