    Trying Is The Key Word Here

    I am trying to write a book. I am better at keeping journals though. Reality is easier to comment on than fiction. Fiction is challenging! I have written about 40 pages typed so far of the first draft and I am going to keep going. My influences are; Oliver Sacks, Robert Crumb...

    I have had this idea

    for a book for about a year or so. It's about a future apocalyptic event (no zombies,) and at least partly about mankind's reaction to the news of the event. The event will be something like an asteroid on the way to earth, but we have 50 - 75 years, or more, to prepare for it.
