I’m not too far into my current work in progress. In this book, the world finds out definitively that there are supernatural beings. I’m making it a little apocalyptic. Not entirely, but somewhat. People aren’t reacting well to this news.
I have to wonder what we’d be like in real life. How would YOU react if you saw a news story that contained proof that supernatural beings are among us? Would you believe it? Would you hunker down and hide? Would you fight? Or would you go on about your normal life?
I like to think I’d go on as usual, but I can’t say for sure. A lot of people already believe in ghosts, aliens, lots of things that others believe are nothing more than fantasy. I don’t believe in that stuff, but I don’t go out and attack people who do believe.
I kind of think our world would react in the way I’m writing this. There would be three groups: the believers, the disbelievers, and the fighters. The fighters do tend to be the ones who are the loudest, so people would believe that everyone was opposed even if they weren’t. It seems to be the way we react to everything. The fighters like for everyone to be angry, so they vilify everyone. That’s not me. I’m of the live and let live school of thought, so I feel like I’d be that way if this happened in real life.
What about you? How do you think your life would change if you found out that legends were real? Which group would you fit into?
I need to get back to writing this. Please bear in mind, I’m not trying to indoctrinate anyone into my own belief system. I’m just writing a story. On that note, I’m getting back to it. Keep an eye out for a new book, but also for my new audiobooks!
