You guys might be wondering, "Wait, didn't she just rope someone into this while she was off getting 'super writing ninja training' (aka a conference)?" And the answer is....YEEEES! I did rope my fabulous writing buddy Sierra into is, so go read hers too.
The fact is, she wrote like a superehero book that's 782917 times better than mine, and so that's why I asked her. But let's be real, if she had talked about everything there was to know about writing superheroes, she would probably still be writing, because THERE'S A LOT, LET ME TELL YOU!
I'm here with sorta a part 2, buuuuuut, um, yeah, let's go with that.
Ok, so first off, I want to talk about using the powers. If your character just got powers, chances are they're going to forget them...a lot. But when they remember, they're all like, "Oh yeeeeah, I got super human vision!" Make sure you don't forget that they have them and 76% of the way through suddenly remember, "I'm writing about a superhero...riiiiight."
The superpowers need to be well described, especially in the beginning. If your readers are like, "What?" then it's not a good story. One advantage movies have is they can show it, but we have to describe it and do a really good job with it.
I give this book a five stars!
Thank you so much for reading!
