A Day in the Life wallpaper: 10 characters pictures. Father, Samantha, Winslow, Lisa, Elizabeth, Rebecca, Kanin, Mary, Jamie, and Eric. Test reads: A Day in the Life. How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. Annie Dillard

Welcome to

A Day in the Life

a project inspired by conversation in the BBTV discussion group

 

Have you ever wondered why Jamie carries a crossbow, how Samantha spends her time when she’s not doing schoolwork or delivering Winterfest candles, what Father and Mary might be up to when we’re not looking?

If you would like answers to these questions – and several more – we think you will enjoy “A Day in the Life,” a collection of short stories designed to explore everyday life in the world Below.

Each story is told from a single character’s point of view and opens a window to life in the tunnel community as experienced by them.  The characters are familiar but still mysterious, as many were provided little or no backstory. We hope you’ll find their stories intriguing, thought-provoking, and hopefully … inspiring.

We’re considering the continuation of this collection, so, if one of your favorite characters did not have “a day” this time, you might want to write for Part Two.  Please watch for the announcement of guidelines and publication date for the upcoming project. We would love to have you join us!

Please know that all feedback will be very much appreciated. You may leave comments on each story or, if you’d prefer, email the author if a link is provided.

Thank you for visiting!

  1. What a way to celebrate 33 years……thank you so much. and now thanks to CBS Access I got to watch the Pilot and episode 2 binge watching this weekend has begun

    33 years ago I found my dream
    I am not as strange as I seem
    OK Human/ET
    that was me
    But Sci Fi did not have the romance I crave
    and then….well here is the tv show in my heart I do save
    Catherine is alive and well and below
    with Vincent her beau
    and their family it could not be otherwise
    God Bless you and thank you

  3. Thanks very much to the amazing writers who contributed stories to this project, to everyone who has read (and I hope enjoyed) them, and especially to Carole for hosting us on her beautiful website and for being a wonderful partner on this project from day one. It has been an honor and a joy to participate and share this experience with all of you.

    • This project was a lot of fun for me and the stories everyone submitted were really creative and meaningful. These characters have such rich lives now! I think of them all in different lights. Thanks, everyone, for writing.

      Thanks, too, to everyone reading. It makes a difference that you do.
