So I have been reading the Popular Science magazine.  I have always had a passion for science and career wise I even thought about going into the field.  But something steered me towards literature and now I will be an English major in the fall of this year.  But science has been creeping back into my life with all the movies over the past few years like: Star Trek -Into Darkness, Looper, MIB 3, RoboCop, After Earth, Oblivion and so on.  These movies have seen a rise in popularity because there was quite a while without that many sci-fi movies.  Maybe just a few Will Smith sy-fy movies every once in a while to tide us over.  But now it is a booming genre.

What does these movies and science have to do with my writing.  Well recently Popular Science made a call out to science fiction authors and asked for more books written about a futuristic world where it DOES NOT become a dystopia world.  Science shouldn’t be the negative thing to bring down our civilization.  It should be wars or natural disasters.  That’s my opinion anyways.  Readers and scientists are tired of things like Hunger Games or Divergent, portraying a world where science is a horrible, evil menace where we need to live like we are cave men again.  Science should be our saving grace.

If we look at history and far science came in just fifty years then we are the most incredible people on the planet.  Our country put a man on the moon.  We made that happen.  We explore other planets.  We found the G-planet that closely resembles our world in another solar system.  Come on!  We can accomplish great things.  Sure there are new things to destroy us like the atomic bomb or droid planes that have bombs attached to themimages (1) that can be sent anywhere remotely.  But with better intelligence information less mistakes can be made.  There will always be human error somewhere.  We are not perfect but the science can be.

 

 

My new journey will be to incorporate a science fiction theme into a middle grade book.  Science will not be bad or negative.  It will show children that science can be seen as a good thing.  Humor will also play a part in the story.  I have the outline and now I just need to get to work on writing it.  The plot is a simple coming-of-age story set in the far future.

I just hope people like it as much as I do.  Science rocks!

Expressive and Emotional word content... poetic justice... my thoughts are perceptive, occasionally subjective but always dimensional. My career lies in psychology and my mind lies in philosophy. To question and ponder is to reflect. I am both reflective and directive. I never walk with caution as our steps need their footprints. I love this journey we call life.
