The Dessert

I’d like to do a story involving the dessert. I’ve had an idea for a long while and images of tribes whose names are their deeds and scared on their flesh that live in the dessert in adobe buildings. There are a lot of ideas that could really work with that, I’ll see how many I can list off the top of my head:

Gandhi figure causes great conflict and strife by using passive and peaceful resistance in a warlike region.

A figure of prophecy struggles with a higher understanding that changes the nature of what the culture’s beliefs mean.

A conflict that extinguishes a tribe and the life of the last remaining member of that tribe.

A tribe of slaves revolts and struggles for their freedom violently.

The perspective of a woman.

The edge of a spreading dessert.

A tribe tries to raise and expand an oasis.

Themes that can be strong… Water, blood, wind, sun, ink, circles, steel, history, bones, animals, plants.
