Dystopia and Utopia

Dystopia is an imaginary place where living conditions are poor and the people are unhappy and not fairly treated. Utopia is the complete opposite. It is an imaginary place where the government, living condition are all perfect.

I tend to write both. I enjoy Dystopia better because I hate perfect even though I’m a perfectionist.

When writing Dystopia and Utopia, it is usually take setting in the future. When making your characters, don’t be cliché or a stereotype. Just because everything is perfect doesn’t mean your character has to be unless in the book it’s a rule to be. And just because everything is horrible in Dystopia doesn’t mean good things can’t happen.

For example, Veronica Roth’s Divergent is a Dystopia placed in Dystopian Chicago. In the book, good things do happen to Tris, main character.

The best thing with the future book is the creativity. There’s no limit to that. Even the names can be wild but be carefully not to confuse your readers will hard pronouncing names.

Some books:

Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Uglies, Pretties, Special, Extras by Scott Westerfeld

The City of Ember, The People of Sparks and more by Jeanne DePrau

Swipe, Spark, Storm and Sneak by Evan Angler

Good luck and may the odds be in your favor!
