After numerous doctors visits, xrays, and such, it’s obvious my back problems aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. I’m going to try to get back to writing, even in the uncomfortable position of laying down.
I’ve had a potential epilogue/prologue in mind for months for Superpowered. After discussing it at length with a few people lately, I was spurred into actually writing it out. The first 3 and a half chapters of the second book have little to no action in them, and though the reaction I’ve received so far has been quite positive, I feel it needs something a bit more. So this is why the prologue is being birthed.
It’s kind of a fun and brain tingling exercise for me, because the prologue is set 3rd person, since it focuses on a character other than Dennis. So I’m trying to come to grips with a slightly different writing style. In truth, I love writing in first person because I find it incredibly easy. I’ve always had a knack for empathy and putting myself in someone else’s shoes. All I have to do in order to write Dennis, is to put myself into that mindset, imagine myself in the situations he’s dealing with, and just write out my thoughts and what is going on in my imagination.
And after typing this post out, writing a few paragraphs in the prologue, and talking with my girlfriend’s mother, it’s obvious that between the pain and the medication…I’m having a hard time finding the right words for anything. Maybe I need to put this off a little longer….
