When choosing the theme of underwater for my book, I decided that I'd mix it up a little. I added Long Stories with Short Endings, and a touch of This Not What it Seems and a dash of A Comic Book Ending. I had left it extremely late to complete my book. The blank white pages kept taunting me, despite having already chosen the theme. Then out of the blue, (in this case, the deep blue), I knew what my story would be about. There is nothing like a deadline to force inspiration to the surface.
My ideas are often simmering away on the back burner with nothing much appearing to be happening. When it all comes together, it's a wonderful feeling. After that, the work seems to detach itself from me as if it owns itself. (I'm also a musician and have had exactly the same feeling when listening to recorded improvisations I have made. It can be as if someone else is playing, not me.)
For me participating in this project is about communicating and connecting with others. I hope that I will be able to share a little of my sense of humour with someone out there. Life can be tough, but a smile can lighten the load, even just a little bit.
