I remember something creepy that happened a couple years ago when evil clowns started appearing around the world. Most of them were pranks, but many people feared that these clowns were preparing for an uprising that resembles The Purge. Fortunately, the clowns disappeared for a while and the rumored clown purge never happened, but the thought of killer clowns causing chaos across the country filled me with dread. I am thinking of showing a clown purge in my superhero series and the main characters will be fighting to stop them.
I have finished the prologue of my superhero story’s second draft. Tonight, I begin the first chapter and see how far I can go. The prologue highlighted the extent of the alternate timeline from 1918 to 2018. The first chapter starts the story off in the year 2023 and I plan to start with a bang! Wish me luck.
I have always liked opening texts from science fiction films such as Star Wars and Blade Runner. They always establish the setting of the overall story. I am thinking of doing the same with my new superhero series and I will write it like I would a newsreel or historical record. Mark my words, in this story, the past century will have turned out different.
