    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.
