"Two international spies who finished spreading a new government-backed pathogen into a foreign planet, which they were told after their mission successfully debilitated that planet and its race. One of these agents was forced into his position and was made to take the assignment against his will and is, therefore, severely underpaid. He has poor credit and tries to take a loan out in order to put a down payment on a car for his 16-year-old daughter, when suddenly... zombies appear."
Just trying to improvise. I like the way this is going, but I really astronomy too.
With the way this works, it only takes a few creative plot twists to bring the story to outer space, or even bring outer space to the story.
Quite so. Start small, build up. The main purpose of this exercise is to increase the flexibility of your writing to react to ideas not your own. Do you take their plot twists and abandon any you had in mind, or can you rationally bring yours back while still holding to their introduced ideas?
And whoever I pass to, don't feel like you have to write as much as I do... My pace is pretty insane because I've had a lot of practice over the years =)
