Wasteland, Day to Day

Our lives are littered with day to day drama, highs and lows related to living life. These events can serve as interesting story fodder, though a huge part of what draws people to fiction is the idea of breaking out of the normal everyday drudgery and escaping into a world outside of our own.

For this challenge, I’d like to see that day to day life story written as if you lived day to day in a post apocalyptic wasteland. I’m not looking for heroics, super evil villains, or traditional post apocalyptic stereotypes, unless they are simply part of life.

Basically, the setting should be understood but understated, let the wasteland be your setting without letting it control your story.

And… Go.
