You know, I’ve been trying to stick to my A Wasteland President series. While I posted another installment yesterday, I’m just not feeling it at the moment. Mind is in a “warning! warning!” state, so politics naturally is losing its luster. I’ll probably go back to it eventually, but in the meantime I might write fiction that goes with the grain rather than upstream, which sounds like it’ll be less rebellious, but the opposite is true.
But I just got to thinking. Politics doesn’t need to be in the foreground to persevere. You can write on topics relevant to current life events and still weave in those political themes. Then themes of personal relevance take on a “larger than life” stature. Maybe that’s a good thing.
