THE PERFECT BREADBOX

By Myles Murchison

A New Thought fairy-tale (children and adults) in which an innocent but conceited breadbox believes it is perfect. Quick to see the imperfection in others, when it falls in love with an imperfectly-baked Kiss Me Cake… everything changes, even eternity.

5 Stars - JK Taylor - March 14, 2012

The Perfect Breadbox is the perfect story: First let me say I'll be 50 on the 20th and I loved this story. A wonderful tale about being both perfect and imperfect. I was intrigued by this story, I was invited to review it and the title alone made me request the book. How can anyone write a story about a breadbox, much less one that's perfect? Well author Myles Murchison did exactly that and did it beautifully. I found I couldn't put it down until I finished it. The Perfect Breadbox not only offers a moral and lesson to both children and adults. I don't want to give to much away, the description does that, but the ending is absolutely unexpected and fantastic.

I highly recommend The Perfect Breadbox to everyone, young and old it's simply a beautiful and sweet story.”

5 Stars - Annette - February 22, 2012

The Perfect Breadbox - a perfect book!: The Perfect Breadbox is a fabulous book about the struggle for perfectionism that is so pervasive in our contemporary American culture. It is the kind of a story that leaves you inspired and full of hope. For me, it was comforting to share the journey I have been though with someone else - a breadbox of all things. All about how freeing it is to let go of being perfect. It is an entertaining read - filled with humor, warmth and insight and at one point unbearably sad. But then, there comes a ray of hope. I highly recommend it - it is the kind of book that teaches important lessons about courage and willingness to change - beautifully written and insightful.”

Heartmind: What inspired you to start writing?

I wrote a little essay in grade four and read it out in class. It was a big success. I’m sure it was the first time anybody in school ever noticed me.

Heartmind: What was your first writing job?

I was nervy and desperate for attention as a teenager. Sometimes I wish I could re-find that in myself. Anyway, I submitted an outlandish, self-promoting column to the Winnipeg Free Press (my hometown paper at the time), they bought it, I left school to become a newspaper copyboy, a movie critic and the editor of the newspaper’s weekly ‘Teen Page.’ For me, it was like winning a Pulitzer. That newspaper office with typewriters clacking, the teletypes ringing and people earning a living writing was like heaven.

Heartmind: But you left the newspaper business...

Yes, I discovered I wasn’t suited for the profession. Journalists view the world very critically. They can become cynical and it seemed to me they lived unhappy lives. Anyway, I wanted to be a radio star which looked like more fun to my younger self. Unfortunately, I lacked the genial personality necessary and began to write commercials instead. I had a talent for it and that brought me to Vancouver, CKNW, advertising agencies, video production and broadcast documentaries. And all the while I wrote novels and plays, and later magazine stories and now screenplays.

Heartmind: Often from a ‘spiritual’ point of view...

Yes, I’m one of those people who believe we are spirits having a human adventure, although I still take the human part too seriously.

Heartmind: Any advice to other writers?

What’s to be said that hasn’t already been said? I`ve read that John Gresham writes an hour a day every morning. That sounds like good advice. So did Arthur Hailey`s approach which I read was to dress up in a shirt and tie, go to your desk, and write as if you were working in an office for eight hours a day. In my case, at first I just wanted to be a writer. That is to say, to be known as a writer. Entirely egocentric. Pretty quickly I learned it required that you actually had to write. That`s the hard part. You just have to do it however you can.
