The Importance of the Impossible

Imagination in Motion

Posted by A.E. Marling in Book Dancing | Madness and Creativity

I happen to love both reading and dancing, two activities that no sane person would seek to combine. Since this site is dedicated to the Impossible, I decided to put my feet where my mouth was in a new, creative way.

What if other people could see the joy we experience when reading a good book? This video attempts to capture the breathtaking adventure of reading that leaves you clutching the novel with a sweaty grip late into the night in your own festival of imagination.

I encourage everyone to participate in this celebration and view the YouTube channel of my dancing by clicking here or on one of the images. I also do dance reviews, triumphantly.

In the throes of reading.

  • I’ve just gotten the key to great writing: dance!! Or at least to let your mind respond to your body/emotion instead of the other way around–for a change.

    I have to admit that I’ve not yet had the pleasure of reading one of your books, but having followed you on Twitter for a while and now watched this, I am library-bound tomorrow… (any particular recommendations as to where I start?)

    Coming from a family of obsessive compulsive readers as I do I have always know the joy of a good book, but there’s something just magnificent about this video – it made me laugh, but in a “Yeah,I know that feeling!” sort of way… love it, love it, love it!

      I’m Zeus-in-a-thunderstorm happy to hear that you’re interested in reading my work. You can find my debut novel, Brood of Bones, on Amazon (and regretfully not in a library yet). As a frequent library goer myself, I love it as a way to find new authors. I also don’t mind reading books on my computer and phone, though, and Brood of Bones is available to be loaned out in the great Amazon Prime lending system. I would encourage you to start with Brood of Bones, unless your preference runs toward third person narrative, in which case you will likely would be best served waiting for Fox’s Bride. Also, I would be lying if I didn’t say that Brood of Bones is the darker of the two.

      I might even have a teen fantasy released this December as well, but it’s too early to say so without tempting fate.

  • This makes me ridiculously, unspeakably quietly in my heartie hearts happy. Thank you!!!
