REEL TIME WITH AJ MCMARSON

Reel Time just happened.  It was like, one minute I am sticking my toe in the surf, enjoying the cold, wet, mushy sensation of doing something spontaneous and refreshingly different, when leg over little-blue-bunny-ears, I am bobbing in the waves crying out for the life guard to come and join me.

Seriously – am I ‘reelly’ allowed to have this much fun?

In the Reel Time, I have discovered that rocks don’t just roll they thunder, music is more like communing then I had first thought, that I don’t need hand-eye-coordination to rock a joystick, I invented the LOM, I LOL while I LARP, I get gladder that Celestial Storms don’t really happen, and old girls ‘reelly’ do just ‘wanna have fun’, all this in the flimsy guise of pursuing the eternal story.

The creative process starts with fun.  It really is that simple.  Reel Time is for me, writing in motion, what hey, did you gaze what nearly just happened – I almost spiralled into the Star Ways!

And please enjoy because it is a joy to meet, greet, play and chat with the oodles of fabulous fun-stars that get invited, coaxed, tricked and swindled into entertaining ‘us’
