- When "Oh Shit!" Is a Good Thing
- August 4th, 2012
This afternoon I had one of those "oh, shit!" moments where I dropped what I was doing and went, "I NEED A KEYBOARD, NOW!" I love those.
Basically, two completely separate novel ideas that have been bouncing around in my head for months made passionate love, and now I have absolutely no idea how I ever considered them two separate ideas. ("Well, this is a great story concept, but needs more fleshed out characters!" / "Well, these are great character concepts, but they need an origin story and a main plot!" Oy. I'm so brilliant.)
Now the only trouble is whether a prose novel about superheroes can work as brilliantly as I need it to.
Anyone who's expressed interest in serving as alpha or beta readers: consider yourselves on notice. If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 mph, you're going to see some serious shit.
