Rezwan Razani here. I am a writer, speaker, planner, game designer and activist. At this time, these endeavors don't pay much, and it will be thanks to your patreonage that I will be able to keep doing what I love, and creating things that you hopefully love!

You may know me as:


But did you know there are a bunch of other things I can do...

...related to language, like:
...related to my Persian+American identity, like:
- WHOA! That got political!

- Don't panic! That's part of having a multi-national identity, especially when the nations are in  conflict mode. Plus there's a certain creativity unleashed when your parent's religions seem to be in conflict (Christian Mom, Muslim Dad). Plus, we're all citizens of a planet and civilization in peril, and everything is, to some extent, political. The cool thing is, I attempt to resolve conflicts through transmutation of opposites rather than polarization...so when I get political - it's different. Where was I? Oh yes,

...related to the political, planetary and cosmic questions, like:
  • Developing the Citizen Budget Balancing App;
  • Being active in promoting Universal Basic Income (UBI);
  • Being active in ending First Past the Post Voting;
  • Writing a gardening book: "How to be a Gardener of Paradise" (because پدرم روضه رضوان به دو گندم بفروخت...);
  • Writing a diet book, "More Guns, Less Cookies"; (wait, what?)
  • Setting up a comparative religion theme park in the Middle East. "Amazing Grace Land" is taken, so...Ajabanistan - عجبااستان!
  • Writing Redemptive Environmental Science Fiction (I've got this backlog of blog posts and novels)
  • and more!
True, actually getting some of these things to happen (like the FoPoMu or Ajabanistan) are a long shot. I may only get as far as writing about them, creating videos that explain why they should exist, and so forth. It's all part of the creative process, and you never know how it will unfold.

Now here I am on Patreon, looking for support for my endeavors:
  • Patrons! I'd love financial support, because even though I am happy to do this work for free, everyone around me likes to be paid (so weird!) The landlord, the food people, the doctors, the...well, everyone. You know how it is. If I can cover my modest expenses in life, I can create!
  • Muses! I love intellectual, creative and emotional support.  Feedback and encouragement all help with the creative process! Life, art, it's all a conversation. Without you, it's a stunted monologue. With you, more sparks!
  • Collaborators! Some of these projects would be great with a partner. Does anything here spark with you? Always on the look out for Dream Team members!
  • Enjoyers! Hopefully some of the stuff I make will give others joy.

Sample Output

Below are some blurbs and links to things I've done already so you can get an idea of my style.

The Footprint thing...

Are you ready to get disruptive and solve this climate change dilemma once and for all? That's awesome! Feel free to support fp2w on the fp2w site. It's a nonprofit, so it will be tax deductible and all. Super important to get that fully supported. Civilization depends on it.

Note that this Patreon page is a separate thing - support for things I love doing, things that will ideally be done in a world that is securely sustainable.

I'm putting this fp2w video here to give you a sense of the fp2w mission, and also a sense of my video making style. I will make similar videos for all of the projects listed above, and many more offshoots that come to mind. So, check it out!
 

So...that's my style! And also, what a great cause! I do hope you check it out. So many plays, so little time. The more people get involved with fp2w, the more peace of mind I will have that we can really win climate change! And the easier to focus on the other cool stuff I want to create.

The Persian Magnet thing...

Back in the day I made some Persian language stuff, and am still working to get the #textingfArsi protocol to catch on. You can order your own set of Persian-English word magnets on Etsy while supplies last. It comes with all this awesome stuff:


Redemptive Environmental Science Fiction...

My genre is Redemptive Environmental Science Fiction (RESFiction). Some of the RES Fiction overlaps with the zero carbon stuff, like the sequel to the Blob, or Nuclear Pride and Prejudice. Or that zombie movie. And some doesn't.

And when I say redemptive, I mean redemptive.

Guiding you through the Apocalypse...

...for fun and prophet.

I'm the granddaughter of a Muslim cleric and the daughter of a Born Again Christian. I have some insight to offer on the end times which we are apparently going through, or which people somehow crave (there's a word for it). I had been putting this off. "Like Jonah, you run" but it seems that the time has come to deliver the message that has been bubbling inside me for decades now.

In practical terms, what I mean is that I'm writing a novel, nay, a breathtaking work of Redemptive Environmental Science Fiction, entitled, "The Sign of Jonah".

And then there's all the unapocalyptic stuff. #Backlock - er, #Backlog from the institute of irrelevent creativity.

This is it!

This is my attempt to try to continue doing what I love doing and providing cool things in the world for you to enjoy. Your support is much appreciated.

Thank you so much!
