When the owner arrived and found the strangers in his tank some had their feet dangling in the air, he was infuriated and terrified, he at once went into the house and removed a riffle, as he was about to blow up the aliens, they shouted back screaming for mercy, “please stop, don’t shoot!,” they said, “we did not mean to muddy your drinking waters, it’s just that we were so thirsty and so dehydrated we could not think properly, we thought the quickest way to cool our burning bodies was to throw ourselves into the tank, please understand, we will pay you whatever damage we have done to you.”

When to take the pen
I grab my pen only when I am very emotional, when I feel nothing, I write nothing, often I look out for feelings like joy, sorrow, hopelessness, despair, delight, flashback, things that make your mind wonder away far and wide, now that’s the best time you should take it down on ink and paper.
Before I can pick up a pen to scribble down a few things, I make sure I put some sad music to play in the background for a little while, it draws in the mood I need to focus on my feelings, my deep thoughts, and some of my greatest desires, my most important dreams, the wildest of my imaginations.
The excitement is transmitted from the mind and body to the hands and the pen, it then drops down onto the page with the ink, if an author can never enjoy writing his/her work then neither will the reader enjoy reading that piece of work.
If you feel detached from your work while writing your book, then readers are going to feel detached from your story while reading your book, if you are deeply absorbed into the themes while scribbling it down likewise readers and going to get absorbed in your subject.
