We Are the Ants
by Shaun David Hutchinson

Synopsis:
Henry Denton doesn’t know why the aliens chose to abduct him when he was thirteen, and he doesn’t know why they continue to steal him from his bed and take him aboard their ship. He doesn’t know why the world is going to end or why the aliens have offered him the opportunity to avert the impending disaster by pressing a big red button.

But they have. And they’ve only given him 144 days to make up his mind.

Since the suicide of his boyfriend, Jesse, Henry has been adrift. He’s become estranged from his best friend, started hooking up with his sworn enemy, and his family is oblivious to everything that’s going on around them. As far as Henry is concerned, a world without Jesse is a world he isn’t sure is worth saving. Until he meets Diego Vega, an artist with a secret past who forces Henry to question his beliefs, his place in the universe, and whether any of it really matters. But before Henry can save the world, he’s got to figure out how to save himself, and the aliens haven’t given him a button for that.
This was released in the US yesterday, and I'm SO excited about it. I discovered it at the weekend, and now I'm desperate to get my hands on a copy. It already has a great rating on Goodreads, and I can see why. I think this story has the potential to be funny in places, but also life-affirming and thought-provoking. I'm also really enjoying that it has a gay main character, but without making that a central theme of the plot (in other words, having a gay main character is normal and something we don't need to make into a discussion point).
This sounds like quite a unique book and I know it won't be long until I get this off the Wishlist and onto the TBR.

Exploratory writing is anything where the intention is to express contemplations, sentiments and feelings as opposed to just pass on data. in case you're shy of thoughts, read the Daily Writing Tips article on "Composing Bursts". Numerous new inventive essayists find that doing the cleaning up or weeding the patio nursery all of a sudden looks engaging, contrasted with the exertion of taking a seat and putting words onto the page. Constrain yourself to get past these early questions, and it truly will get simpler. Attempt to get into the propensity for composing each day, regardless of the possibility that it's only for ten minutes.
