Hiya, Gen!

So glad to see ya drop by!

Interesting take on the 'home' living.

Yeah; writing with someone else could be tricky.

I was wondering: What would the 'valley-folk' want from the cave-folk in your story?

So what are your thoughts on how green fiction should be made

The climate change problem is well suited as a subject for a novel
It has all the necessary elements

A potential crisis
Lots of bad guys

Just add a hero and heroine who save the world.

And in the end world lives happily ever after in a green sustainable world.

A simple story line would be inventor finds wonderful new way to generate power in a completely non polluting way, fossil fuel tycoon finds out about it and attempts to destroy hero/heroine and invention.

The hard part is to give the characters depth, realistically portray the tensions and relationships between them all the while creating a sense of anticipation.
