WRITING UPDATE: SHORT STORY (CHAPTER FOUR)

I have just started the fourth chapter of my upcoming short story and it is a chapter I am particularly excited about.  The reason for this is because the supervillain will be officially introduced and he is one frightening fellow.  His powers will be based on gravitational force and the way he acquires these powers will make his external appearance match his malevolent nature.  I am eager to write his showdown with the main character in future chapters.

TITLE: THE YOUNG GUARDIANS AND THE REVELATION ORB

The Revelation Orb got its name for two reasons.  First, it reveals something about those exposed to it, which will be elaborated in the aftermath of volume three.  Second, exposure to the Revelation Orb’s power will result in apocalyptic consequences that will culminate in the fifth volume since the Orb is also named after the Book of Revelations.  Like the Genesis Spell did in volume one and the Great Darkness did in volume two, the Revelation Orb will play a pivotal role in the events that are portrayed in the story.  I am eager to write the remaining volumes and demonstrate the magnitude of the aftermath of volume three.

WONDERCON UPDATE: FURTHER PREPARATIONS

As the clock counts down to WonderCon, I steadily continue my preparations for the convention.  Yesterday, I acquired a set of T-shirts that eight volunteers will wear at the convention.  In addition, the designs of my banner, bookmarks, and flyers are underway and I will receive them soon.  Also, with the rate my third volume’s publication is going, there is a strong possibility it will be released in time for WonderCon.  I will keep you updated on any further developments.

INSPIRATION: THE YOUNG GUARDIANS’ ORIGIN

In the sample from The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell I posted earlier today, you could see them being struck by an otherworldly being outside of a movie theatre.  The following image is the location in which this event occurs in the book.  The reason why I chose this place to be the sight in which the Young Guardians acquired their powers was because it is a place of great sentimental significance to me and my best friends.  Every year on my birthday, we would gather at this movie theatre and see the latest superhero film.  Between middle school and high school, we would discuss all of the possibilities of what our lives would be like if we became superheroes.  By my junior year in high school after we viewed yet another superhero film on my birthday, I imagined us experiencing something that would transform us into the heroes we dreamed to be as we walked out of the theatre.  That was when the idea for my series first began.
