Shoot me now

On second thought, don't.

I kind of have this idea and it's based on the weekend's events.

From what I've been reading, these assholes are hitting soft targets. Well, what if there was a terrorist group that decided to hit New Zealand?

Okay, you might say there are several things wrong with the scenario. And as funny as it sounds, I thought of this line from Star Wars: Episode IV. "Dantooine is too remote to make an effective demonstration ..."

It's true. New Zealand is isolated and for that reason alone, it wouldn't be the best target strategically. But, what if that was precisely the reason why someone would decide to hit it?

Anyway, my idea is this. Some time in the not too distant future, a terrorist group decides to hit good old Aotearoa. In force. Like they take Auckland by stealth (since it's our biggest city and where they can do the most damage).

Of course, there's worldwide outrage. How could this happen, why NZ (especially for the reason stated above). I might have a scene where the leader is discussing this with his troops and telling them exactly why - it being a soft target, no one would consider it a threat, blah, blah.

Now, I haven't worked this all out in my head, so that's pretty much as far as I've got plotwise. But I do have ideas where martial law is declared all over the country, there's riots, people automatically pointing the finger at anyone who even looks like the same culture as the terrorists, mass murders, maybe even a lynch mob kind of thing, and a small group decides to fight back.

I can't even look at this idea until I've finished Letting Go. I kind of know where I want to go with that story and I've given myself a deadline of around Christmas for that one. Then of course I have the sequel to Phoenix, and the first of a series of comedic type stories in the vein of Robert B Parker's Spenser series.

Agh, all this, fanfics and work too? Soemthing's gotta give.
