Thinking out loud

Writing for a cause

In Blog on December 1, 2012 at 10:37 am

I never thought I would become a writer, as a kid I always wanted to but somewhere along the traumas of adolescence the dream kind of faded out. It wasn’t until I started studying Environmental Science at University that I found myself again. Writing assignments for the socio-political side of environmental concerns, brought back the love of getting my understanding of the world out there for everyone to see.



I am currently writing my first novel: Ecollapse. It has been a journey so far, exploring my feelings towards particular areas of society and parts of the world that I think need to be liberated and possibly thrown away. Ecollapse is a story set in a post-cataclysmic world. Jenson Arms, an environmental scientist and activist reflects on how he tried to change the world before human activity and natural disasters wiped out the ecosystem, including more than half of the global population. Society is on the verge of collapse and it is up to Jenson and the Earthlings movement to figure out a new way to survive, that enables humanity to thrive without damaging what is left of planet Earth.

Now, I am not going to reveal anything else as I know it will be detrimental towards the process of writing and I am in the flow, with over five chapters already written. I expect the book to be published independently within the first few months of next year (providing we are still here). It’s exciting to think I may be an author soon so fingers crossed and make sure you follow this blog to keep up to date with where I am at!
