Creating a Superhero

Hi friends,

I’ve been thinking a lot about superheroes lately. Mostly with the explosion of superhero movies, which makes me spectacularly happy. I’ve been into superheroes, since I was a little girl. I have memories of watching X-Men and Spiderman cartoons every morning, when a little girl. It evolved into watching Batman Beyond, X-Men: Evolution, Teen Titans, and Justice League later. Then that sort of evolved into going to the movie theater to watch the earlier Batman movies, X-Men, Blade, and Spiderman as the supehero movie genre really took off.

Camp NaNoWriMo July 2013 Update

Hi everyone,

Camp NaNoWriMo for July is coming to close. In my previous post, I talked about my goal being 25,000 words. Unfortunately real life interfered.  I had to help my sister because she was going through the death of someone very dear to her. Then I had to put everything on pause to study for the GRE. I had to lower my goal to 10,000 words. I don’t even think I’ll meet that one either. I did complete one out of three of the short stories I meant to finish. I’m happy I finished something at least.

This short story focused primarily on another sister who lives in a world which is mostly desert. She has the power over controlling the element of earth.  I’m very pleased with how her story came out, but I feel like something’s missing. I’ll just have to address it, when I go back to edit it.

Good luck on your projects.
