Going Obsolete: A What-If
What if food became obsolete? Imagine big Pharma reducing all of a body's necessary nutrition to a pill. The ramifications would be mind-blowing. (This is a short writing prompt now, but may evolve into a longer, French Press, post later)
While food is essential for everyone, consider what your character views as essential to his or her life. What if that thing was made obsolete or otherwise altered forever?
For example, my MC Delilah Duffy loves books and runs a bookstore. But what if a tree shortage means the end of books altogether? Yikes, what would she do? It'd not only affect her free time, but her livelihood.
Figure out what's important to your main character and brainstorm ideas of what would happen if that thing is taken away.
