Ive been working on a novel for the past 6 or 7 months and its about half way done. Its a sci-fi titled The Evacuation of Earth. Its about the goverment secretly recruiting a special team of the most intelligent people to go in search of a new planet for them to repopulate the human race, due to the effects of globel warming. But upon arrival to the new planet they discover that it already has life living on it. I know its sounds like a story that has been done to death. But I feel like the way ive added a realistic twist by using the roswell incident and the moon landing as tools to drive the story forward. My problem is i'm struggling to get a picture of what this "other world" and its inhabitants will be like. If someone could give me some advice that would be great.
