Writing Prompts

Wednesday Writing Prompt: Shanghai Tower, vertical cities

Have you heard about the “vertical city” that is the new Shanghai Tower? According to a documentary I watched recently on PBS, the tower will contain everything that a person needs so residents will never have to leave the building. Can you imagine what it would be like to live like this? What if we all someday must move into these towers to escape the smog? And what will happen to the people who aren’t able to afford to move into these towers in such a future? Watch this video, and then write a story that takes place within this or a similar self-contained city.

As always, please feel free to share your work in the comments below, or post to your own blog and share a link to the post.
