WRITING UPDATE: SHORT STORY (CHAPTER TWO)

I have reached the fourth page of the second chapter of my first short story that will introduce one of the new characters that will appear in volume four.  I am becoming increasingly eager to finish this short story because the character this short story will revolve around is intriguing because, in a way, he physically is his powers due to the fact that he is not made of flesh, blood, or bone.  His consciousness is intact, but he no longer possesses a body in a traditional sense.  The manner in which he acquires his abilities will be a combination of a classic laboratory accident and how the Young Guardians gained their powers, essentially a blend of both science and magic.  In addition, the public’s reaction to the immediate aftermath of volume three will be explored in more detail.  I look forward to when I finish this short story and I predict that I will publish it sometime later this year.

GENRE: SHORT STORIES

As I delve deeper and deeper into my various projects, I have come to realize that I am entering new territory by starting my short story sub-series.  I have always been accustomed to create complex characters and elaborate plots, but have never had to create a story that has a compressed storyline.  Until this moment, I have never written a short story before so this will be a good new experience for me in my writing career and something to add to my writing arsenal.  I look forward to seeing the results of this experiment and which direction my writing will take afterwards.

WRITING UPDATE: SHORT STORY (FIRST CHAPTER)

I have completed the first chapter of one of the short stories that will pave the way to my upcoming fourth volume.  I must say I feel a certain fascination and intrigue about the main character of this short story spin-off because of his unique backstory and powers.  His origin and powers will revolve around something to do with harnessing solar power, such as solar panels, and will be combined with the aftermath of volume three.  I have started the second chapter and I look forward to what is waiting over the horizon.  I will keep you updated on any further developments.

WRITING UPDATE: SPIN-OFF VOLUME ONE

With the third volume undergoing publication and WonderCon around the corner, I have decided to make a slight alteration of my originally planned writing schedule.  In the fourth volume, five new characters will appear and they will play significant roles in the forthcoming battle.  To get everyone ready for volume four and give them a proper introduction to these characters, I have decided to take a break from volume four and focus on the first of my spin-off volumes, which will revolve on the origins and backstories of these five new characters.  Apart from portraying the characters’ origins and powers, this series of short stories will demonstrate how they were affected by the immediate aftermath of the events in volume three.  I have begun this spin-off with the first character whose powers will revolve around both energy and quantum physics.  After writing the first few pages, I am instantly hooked into writing this new project.  I will keep you updated on any further developments.
