Behind the Scenes of the Last People

Oceans 402

So what would you do, if you were the last person on earth? After the initial shock and horror of it all, you would want to find other people! You probably wouldn’t care about the big issues, you would be more concerned I think, about your own sanity.

These are just some of the thoughts I had in writing the series. I wanted to make Miriam and Jeremiah as different as possible. This is my attempt to have racial reconciliation within the story. Her being very tall, makes them even more unique. The neat thing about fiction is that it allows you to create a world that is better than the one we live in. I wanted to show love between people of different backgrounds. This allows me to explore culture, and how it would work in a new world.

From the beginning, I knew there would be a need for other people, instead of just the two. Adam and Eve can only go so far. And they needed people, not just to make the story interesting, but for humanity to continue. In upcoming segments we will see some other characters, including the good and bad within them. For me, a good story is about people. When I admire great literature of the past, it is always the characters, so wonderfully written about, that keeps me interested.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I would look for a food source and water source, look for animals and then look for people, I’m vegan, so the only reason I would look for animals before people is that animals know how to survive better than people and I would observer what they are doing to survive so that when I found people I could share the information with them. We all need to work together with the animals, who truly are teachers, as are birds.

    1. Genie I love your comments! You are so right about animals teaching us, we can learn so much if only we would pay attention! I’m not a Vegan (I’m not there yet) but I have a great love for the creation. Peace and many blessings to you.

  2. This situation , finding oneself all alone in their world reminds me of “I Am Kegend” th e movie with Will Smith. I am sure initially one would search frantically but eventually start to adjust to the situation they are Iin but never give up the hope of finding human life. Very intriguing subject. Nicodemas

    1. Thank you Holly! I’ve heard of that movie, but haven’t seen it. I think you’re right about the adjusting. Fortunately we do have that hope built in us. Your comments are awesome. Peace.

      1. peace to you! In the movie , the guy has a dog so he has some living thing(of course there are monsters) but the premise of being all alone is the saddest part. Thank you 🙂
