The shed population increases

Sunday, 15 January 2017

There are now 27 supporters in the shed. It's great in the shed. If you're not inside already, come in and join us! We've now raised over 6% of the total. 

One of the perks of being in the shed - in addition to being a part of this warm and cuddly community - is that you get to ask me questions about the book, the project or anything else. So far nobody has, though. So if anybody does have any questions, do lob them my way. 

Best wishes

Brandon

Great progress on the campaign Brandon! An obvious first question I suppose: where did you get the central idea from? Did it just come to you whilst cleaning the loo? Or was it the product of a long process of brainstorming ideas and then narrowing them down?

Hello, Christine! Sorry, I've only just seen this question. It's a good one. I think the central idea came from the fact that when I was a kid I spent long hours thinking about what I would do if I had various amounts of wishes. And I think many people do this (the enduring popularity of wish stories suggests as much). There's also the fact that teenagers, especially, are great daydreamers; I've no idea how many boring lessons I idled away at school, by daydreaming about things I wished would come true. So the components for the story were already there, within me - I'd already had daydreams about quite a few of the wishes, like making my dog talk, and having super strength, and causing attractive people to fall in love with me. So I just set out to write it all down - to write a wish-fulfilment story. I don't quite know what triggered me to write it, but I do know that once I began I couldn't stop: I wrote it over the course of one summer, getting up at 5.30 every morning to work on it!
