Comments & Chatter October 31, 2014 James Sutton Excellent idea. Very much looking forward to getting my page together :-) pledged! — Eddie Lewis This is an incredible project. I am really looking forward to see the final completed work out of it. :) — Waylon Wolf Black This is a fantastic project, really enjoyed writing my piece and am fascinated by all the submissions in so many various styles and media. Can’t wait for the finished product, well done to everyone involved in this! — Gavin Merville Possibly my favourite project with which I’ve ever been involved. Can’t wait for the final book. — Kenton Hall I’m so glad I found out about this project through twitter! It’s a great idea and I loved writing my page :) — Alice Harper What a great idea. My hubby had to kick my arse but I submitted my page and apparently it was the first page of short fiction. I hope and am sure there will be more ...What’s great about this is that it invites all sorts of contributions. But if I’m honest keeping everyone to a page is also important, so no-one gets to bang on. — Rachel Parker Just seen my page on Twitter and Facebook. Made my day seeing it actually being used, can’t wait to see this when we are all published. Brilliant project! Brilliant idea! Just brilliant. Nice to meet you all, really great seeing differing styles, emotions and cultures. We are all immortal :-) — Eddie Lewis Great idea and well done. Seen my page up on the site was a huge thrill. Do it if you’re scared or not scared, take the friggin chance. — David Carriveau A good project that allowed me to stretch a creative muscle I had almost forgotten about. I’m looking forward to receiving my printed copy. — Lance Hambly So excited for the book and excited for you and your project on a whole. Thank you for coming up with such a great idea, I’m so happy to be involved. THANK YOU. — Jessica Almond It has been quite an experience for me to write a page in this book. Thank you for giving me such a great opportunity, this should happen more often. Perhaps another mind blowing topic for the next book? Can’t wait to see the final book! Thank you! — Karina Suriaputra Great experience writing a page in this book....never done poetry but always enjoyed a witty rhyme here and there...might even start doing a bit more of it if I make the book — Darren Leonard Immortality has always been an interest of mine, both creatively and academically. I’m happy that I got to be a part of a project with fellow earthlings around the globe! Thanks for the opportunity — Rayna Hi everyone, I just summited my page. Please cross the fingers for me to make it into the book. But what I really want to say is what an amazing project this is. Thanks James for not only having an amazing idea but to push it forward to what this has become. Your effort to make this happen is second to none. I particularly love your one-to-one approach. Answering to everybody who participate as you do is a great detail. I hope the gods make you immortal pretty soon for you to be able to give the world more great projects like this one. Happy to be part of it. — Chef Eddie Perez I think it’s a great idea, and I’m thrilled to become part of this project. — Naithen Calderwood I submitted my page a week ago, it was a huge thrill to see it pop up on Twitter and Facebook, I have shared this over FB and even with my eldest daughters school English Department, give it a go, its a great opportunity to show off your creative talent. Thanks James, keep up the good work. — Andy Hughes Looks like it will be a really good ‘coffee table’ book- something to dip into and a chance of something unexpected every time. — Marilyn Luck This is a real great thing to be involved in cant wait to see the finished product, it going to be really cool :) — Cormac Walsh This is an awesome project and I am honoured to be a part of this great book! I was nervous about what to write on my page after reading so many awesome stories and poems, but after some self searching I was really proud of the poem I came up with. Thanks to James for giving me the chance to do this and learn more about myself! Good luck to everyone who is still finishing up their page! — David Terzibachian What a project! All the pages we’ve had a look at so far are brilliant, and like everyone else I can’t wait to get my hands on the completed book! Sounds like there’ll be enough ideas in there to mull over for a lifetime. Unless you are actually immortal. Then maybe just a really long time. — Leanne Haworth Finally got my page in, there has to be a joke about nearly missing a deadline, eternity and immortality, but I can’t figure it out. — Nicholas Hunt I should say, initially I wasn’t sure how interesting and varied the contributions might be—but, when look through the pages as and when James sends out updates I’m stimulated by how much thought everyone has put into their page. This is going to be an awesome book! — Ashutosh Mohan Great idea with the sponsorship, James! I just increased my pledge with £3 and now Joseph from Kenya will contribute to the book as well! This is the intellectual ice bucket challenge: Who’s next?! — Soren Jensen Ok the phrase “intellectual ice bucket challenge” made my day! So pleased to be a part of this wonderful and impactful project. Bravo, James! I believe that so many people are going to want to get their hands on a copy of this book. I adore the variety of submissions, and I cannot wait to see the finished project! — Andrea Clemens What a fantastic idea for a kick-starter! Once I saw the theme was immortality, I just couldn’t resist! Living forever is my main passion in life! I had such fun writing my page! I hope everyone is trying to live forever! — Roen Horn Truly wonderful concept. I’ve been through a bit of a rough time myself these past few years, so creating a page for this book - thinking about what life really means to me - was part of the healing process. I wouldn’t normally think that funding a project would also touch the soul, but this has. So this is a pretty unusual project: an excellent concept. Well done, James. It’s been fantastic to be part of this. — Chris Lennard It was a great experience. The book is incredible and so original. I am looking forward to having it in my hands.Thanks James! — Marcia M M Weber I can’t wait to read the final product of what we’ve all created! It was so much fun to write my page and I’m so excited to see what everyone else has come up with. — Nathan Leonard Lets get these pages to print :) well done too everyone involved!! — David Sim Thanks James for the idea and bringing us all together! So glad to have been a part of this endeavour. Eagerly waiting to get my hands on the final book :) — Sanchit Arora I love the idea of this book/project as a whole. It is very inclusive and great for giving artists/writers a sense of encouragement. At first, I was not exactly sure how to approach the subject, and I noticed it could be either playful or serious. An interesting subject—I think we will get a great balance in this book. It will be fun to flip through because it will engage immediately, yet with variety. A big thanks for James is owed. He is a great organizer (efficient, friendly, and encouraging). — Bryce MacDonald We’re approaching the finish line (or is it the starting line) and soon the book will be out there for all to see and enjoy. It’s a genuine pleasure and honor for me to participate in this project and I’m excited to see the finished work. Well done, everyone! — Allison Jewell I’m so excited to be apart of this book. This book is truly a game-changer in the industry. — Amanda Rosse Big thanks to James for accepting my submission on deadline day. Honoured to be among the talent on display. — Alastair Stone This is a wonderful idea! I am excited to see the final compilation! Thanks James for creating this book and inviting others to share in this experience. — Bethany Muinch Well, I have my page submitted and I’m now patiently awaiting the arrival of this wonderful book. It seems to be taking forever. Already. But that’s kind of the point, right? — Eddie F I’m so glad to be a part of this. Creative minds coming together to accomplish something immortal. James is amazing to work with and this is a beautiful project. Can’t wait to feel the finish project in my hands. — Crystal Phounsoury Great to be a part of this fantastic idea; I contributed just in time. — Jeff Craig Hey, what a lot of fun! Really great project and I enjoyed myself immensely. I am looking forward to the book being released! — Steve Biddick This comment is much later thaI wish it would be, but I just want to say thanks to James, publicly, for giving young, insecure artists like myself a platform, and an opportunity to express ourselves and the one things we all have in common. Love in the face of mortality. — Phil Casey Post your own comments and let us know what you think about Our Story Book below!
