I AM A PUBLISHED SCIENCE WRITER!!!
Here is an excerpt from my first piece for the Citizen Scientists League:
Let us say there is a major earthquake or a tsunami or a storm system that rocks the coast. Let us say this catastrophe brings down the structure system that we as Americans have grown to rely on. If grocery stores and power plants and gas for your car were no longer options, what would be the hardest loss for you? I for one would miss my laptop. Now, I know what you are thinking: “Genevieve, if there is a grid crushing event of apocalyptic proportion you will have no need for your laptop.” To this I’d say: “How dare you speak that way around my laptop you luddite. I will need something if I say I will need something. How else will I decompress after milking goats and crushing grain to flour to feed my neo-family in my post-apocalyptic utopia?” To that you might say something like: “I’m just being practical. You literally will have no use for a laptop during an apocalypse as the Internet will surely dissolve, printers will become obsolete and there are far more reasonable things to hit a zombie with.” I would likely reply: “With all due respect madam, you are being incredibly daft.”
