Good idea. I think future-fiction is a better way to describe it if you're going to go for a more realistic feel...

It will take a while to write, but to make it real I will look at current affairs now and in the past. Changes in cultures and religion, I may even create new words or deriviatives of current words, for example look how much English has changed since Shakespeare. I won't go over the top though.

Sounds like you're on the right track. It should be very interesting.

I might converse with one of my friends. He has started to write fantasy novels. They are pretty good. I'll just ask him for advice. Not to write the story for me of course but just to hepl me with the overall planning etc.

I'll get him to proof read it for me also.


P.S My father who is an avid Historian has being writing a factual documentary on a relative of ours, a Murderess who threw her baby down a mineshaft. One of if not the first proven case of Post-Natal depression. She was meant to be executed but was pardoned my none other than Queen Victoria. I might ask my father also.

There you go. In reality, no book is written by just one person. A lot of my stories have been started/completed/made more interesting on the advice of my family.

Yeah, ask JK Rowling where she got Aragog from. The name Shelob comes to mind.
