 Origin

Like   many   good   stories,   this   one   occurred   to   me   in   a   dream.   A   very odd   dream   that   seemed   so   close   to   reality,   I   was   unsure   which   was the   true   version   in   the   first   few   moments   of   awakening.   Branded   into my   mind   was   a   single,   unfamiliar   word;   ipsis.   The   closest   I’ve   come   to finding   a   real   world   match   is   the   legal   term,   Ipsissima   verba .   Latin   for ‘the very words.’

Metamorphosis

Over   time   the   title   became   Darklife,   and   as   I   found   my   characters   they evolved    with    the    unfolding    story.    The    beginning    and    ending    were always   roughly   the   same,   but   almost   everything   and   everyone   found in-between   changed   like   sand   under   the   action   of   ocean   waves;   ideas making    and    remaking    new    patterns,    until    what    was    there    finally looked right. Darklife   took   around   a   decade   to   complete.   Mainly   because   of   what John   Lennon   once   described   so   eloquently   in   song   as,   Life   is   what happens when you’re busy making other plans .’
