Read the Science Fiction Thriller

From the founder of Storymind

Man Made follows a mysterious force as it sweeps around the globe erasing anything man made - from buildings, vehicles, and technology to medicines, clothing, and dental work.

Governments stagger under the panic, religions are at a loss for an explanation, scientists strive for any means to stop or divert the phenomenon, and the world’s population from families to individuals struggle to prepare for The Event, which will drive humanity back beyond the stone age.

The Event is coming.

Are you prepared?

Revised Synopsis

Now that you know which characters are your protagonist, antagonist and Main Character, and something about them as people, it is important to tie them in with the overall plot, which personalizes the events of the story.  Otherwise, a plot comes off as dry and un-involving.

Referring to your most recent synopsis, revise the material to integrate what you have developed for your protagonist and antagonist, and Main Character.
