Well, I am just bubbling with excitement and anticipation. It has been a long two years, but we finally got there.
I, in December 2013, had my heart set on starting a project. A project that showed what it was like to walk in someone else’s shoes. I called in any friend that had ever said to me ‘I want to publish a book’, anew I made it so. I found a word. A word that could spark so much inspiration, so much different inspiration.
Ask yourself, what story would you write from “An overwhelming desire to kiss.”
The creation began in January 2014. We all met up, ordered pizza and we began an epic brainstorm. We were mere 18 year olds when the project began (well, one was 19). And we worked on this project for months straight, we worked alone, then met and updated on our progress, although the update on progress became meeting up to eat pizza, drink coffee, laugh. Only about 40% of the time did we actually talk about the book. But we still continued to work.
It hasn’t been without its difficulties, life did get in the way. With us all still completing years in college and university, we had to work out how to create our characters and also revise enough to actually complete our education. But, we still managed to do it.
We managed to create five people; 17 year old Robert, 18 year old Isabelle, 21 year old Caleb, 16 year old Ellie and 18 year old Dom.
Each with their own story to tell, each with their own overwhelming desire to kiss.
