At the Water’s Edge by S. McPerson Guest Post

What is a normal day in the life of the writer of “At the Water’s Edge”?S.-McPerson-re

A normal day in my life is anything but. Though I do have the ordinary routine of rising from bed,

readying myself and heading off to my day job, where I work as a kindergarten teacher; there are so

many little things happening behind the scenes.

Front of house: My eyes slowly flicker open as the alarm sounds and I stretch.

Behind the scenes: I evaluate my dreams, clinging to any image I can and what it might have meant.

Is there a song? I once heard that if you wake up with a song in your head, you should really listen to

the words; a message from the universe. Also, what vivid images is my imagination painting? Can I

possibly use them in my writing?

Front of house: I make my way to work, listening to the radio and admiring the scenery (I’m not the

one driving).

Behind the scenes: Inside my head I am carrying out a dance routine to the song playing, imagining a

whole concert performance. Sometimes I imagine the song playing as the soundtrack to a scene in

my book- that one is always fun. At other times I am describing the scenery in more interesting

ways. I try to absorb the little things; like how sometimes clouds are wispy and lined as if trod on by

a giant trainer.

Front of house: I eat my late breakfast of tropical muesli and yoghurt during my morning break.

Behind the scenes: I am exploring my senses; the crunch of the food, the texture against my tongue,

the tangy scent of pineapple and the way the chewy bits stick in my teeth. Every opportunity feels

like an opportunity to work on developing my writing.

Front of house: In class is probably the best time, where I get to interact with the children and their

wild imaginations. We invent scenarios, each of us building on the others and one simple notion

suddenly becomes a full-blown expedition.

Behind the scenes: Nothing happening here; I’m all in.

Then the end of the day comes and ordinarily once I’m home and fed, I watch a bit of T.V. normally a

short animation like American Dad or Phineas & Ferb and then I’m straight onto my laptop, reading,

researching or writing. It isn’t the most exciting day when you look at it, all laid out on paper but

that’s why there’s always beauty in reading between the lines.
