There I was, sitting at the 'pute. I had my teenager story out called Bogan's Heroes and my fingers were playing with my imagination....Then Wham! you wouldn't beleive what happened next, but I can tell you that Bogan's Heroes have turned in a dramatic direction.The Shock to Wally Bogan, the main Character, was something of a shock, not a shock of the electrical shock kind but a shock none-the-less. He, and I must admit,I myself, did not expect this unexpected turn of events. That is whathappens when you let your fingers just stand in idle, the next thing youknow they are off with a burst of reverberation colliding with whatevercomes into their path, until they get some message from the departmentof Imagination and Unexpectedness.
It might give you an idea of why I like writing fiction. Sometimes flashes of storyline just appear, eespecially if I am really into what story I am telling.
There were times, when I was a teenager in Queensland, and there was not much intellectual
stimulus around, and one would read the square cuts of newspaper on the nail in the drop-dunny, or when doing a bit of boundry riding, all the writing on a Golden Syrup or jam can. When all that vital reading material ran out, one would contemplate the navel and things of the mind, the imagination, the truth of life with more imagination. So, I have had plenty of exercise at toying with my mind and, funnily enough, we get on reasonably well together.
We are at the exciting stage of about to release my early novel, now named The Outback Story - The Loves and adventures of 'Tiger' Williams, then Shark Butcher, a bad, bad storyof corruption, gratuitious sex, murder and intrigue, and then Bogan's Heroes. Keep an eye out.
