    I would look at current world events making the news anything that you feel is strongly negative or could make people fearful. Take the event from its current condition and create a timeline where the event continues to degrade and get worse to the extreme noting key moments that effect the change. once you have a timeline you can create characters that cause the changes to happen, try to prevent or stop the changes, and are effected by the changes though too ignorant or powerless to do anything about them. once you have that come up with a setting and flesh it out.

    Good Luck

    A strange virus sweeps across the globe obliterating the imaginative capabilities of young people. Write what you know.

    I'm NOT going to give you any plot theme. But maybe some of these words, phrases and idiom,  give you ideas for your story's plot, subplot, place(s), name(s), etc..... Read them and see what comes to mind, and write them down.  You might have to read it a second time to get ideas. Even when it might not be all of them.

    An man is found unconscious on a beach of a large island inhabited by humans where the level of technology is similar to Earth around the 1700s. He awakes amid strangers speaking an unintelligible language and struggles to accept losing his previous life and finding a place in a society with different customs, needing a way to support himself and not knowing a single soul. His worry about finding a place is assuaged when he finds ways to apply his knowledge of chemistry - as long as he is circumspect in introducing new knowledge not too far in advance of the planet's technology and being labelled a demon.
