Story Ideas Concerning “The Future”

The Future as the Concern — All the objective characters are concerned with the future.

For example, a country that is about to dismantle its system of apartheid; a football team preparing for its first season without their star quarterback; a company that has just sunk all of its money into a risky investment; a police squad that has just had their hands tied by new laws protecting the rights of the accused; an employee’s pool deciding what to do if they win the lottery; bridesmaids are concerned with their own potential for companionship in their later years, etc.

Exploring the process of dealing with will happen or what will be will illustrate the The Future as an Objective Story Concern.
