out there

After a little thought (not much) I decided to go with science fiction for NaNoWriMo. I love reading it and I'm obsessed with apocalyptic books and movies so why not just write my own?

The only issue is coming up with a story that hasn't been told yet. When it comes to futuristic stuff, it's pretty much all been done. And mine does, of course, have to include healthy doses of LOOK WHAT THINE NEGLIGENCE HATH WROUGHT ON THE ENVIRONMENT, like many futuristic/apocalyptic books do. But it's so true. Yello, Hurricane Sandy anyone? Although seriously dudes, it's irritating that we needed to have a hurricane before people were like, Oh yeah, global warming! I totes forgot that was a thing!

It's a thing, dudes. It's a real thing.

Anyway, I'm writing this new book, and whatever. It's gonna be very weird and out of my element and probably super-cliche and wrong, but that's all ok. I'm enjoying it and thinking creatively, so it's a good thing.

So tell me: What would you include in a book set in the future? I am totally going to steal your good ideas.
