I have more news regarding my first short story. I started writing the battle between the main character and the supervillain today and I am overwhelmed by the exhilaration it gives me. So far, the battle is intense and increasingly violent with a hint of psychological conflict as well. Both characters wield such power that extreme collateral damage is inevitable. At the rate it is going, I expect to finish the short story sometime soon. I will keep you updated on any further developments.
