It was only later I started to worry: What if my computer broke down? What if my head broke down? What if a Thing with devil-red eyes burst from my lap top and throttled me mid-sentence, leaving me incapable of fulfilling my task? I’d feel a fool. So it was a relief when, as the clock struck 11.01 precisely, I submitted my final words and collapsed to the floor in a sweaty but happy heap. I’d just spent one of the most enjoyable hours I’ve ever had, and certainly the only one that’s included strange men, dogs, hairy-handed assailants, resurrected fathers, silver-plated members of the Death Squad, and jam. Previous hours may have included some of those things, but never all in one go.
When I’d regained my composure I checked back to see how the stories were progressing and it was only then I realised I’d become delirious: Mincemeat bananas? The whole thing was a dream after all. Or was it…
Write Path is fantastic fun and I so enjoyed working with you all today and getting a glimpse into your startlingly strange and brilliant imaginations. Thank you,
