The third book in The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey series is coming out soon. The novel reminds me of the movie Red Dawn. They are both stories of invasions and children fighting back. In the newest Red Dawn it’s the Koreans. In The 5th Wave the enemy is aliens who look like us. It’s incredible how one story can be recycled into something new and exciting.
There are a few basic story lines. Characters want love, revenge, to be successful.If you think about any novels you’ve read the characters want one or all the above. Write a story about an invasion. You can make it a historical event or whatever you want. Just place your character in the middle of an invasion from an outside enemy.
How does your character handle it and does anyone help your character with this problem? Be creative and have some fun.
