I am so excited!
So at long, long last this weekend I managed to finish the story I’ve been working on, ‘Dare’.
I sort of came up with the idea for Dare accidently.
See, the thing is I have pretty strong opinions on Super Heroes, and if you were to ask me which one is my favorite I would give you this emphatic answer which would take a million years saying that Robin (from Batman and Robin) is my favorite, specifically, Dick Grayson.
Anyway, I’ve always been super frustrated that they have never made a movie about Robin’s transition into Nightwing, because I think it would be pretty difficult to be a side kick and trying to prove yourself as a real super hero.
As a matter of fact, the more I thought of it, the more I figured, hey, this idea of having to prove yourself, a lot of young people could relate to this. Having to do difficult things even though you don’t want to? Having to deal with other’s opinions? All super relevant to young people.
So in light of these thoughts, I created my own version of what happens when a sidekick becomes a super hero.
The result of this is ‘Romulus Gray,’ my latest protagonist. A young man with a secret – that he is a super hero’s side kick called Dare – and must work on his own as he is suddenly thrust into the world of being a proper super hero when the hero he served with dies.
I am actually pretty proud of it, so totally have a read if you’d like. I’ve uploaded into PDF, because I tend to read the PDF versions of my books on my iPad.
I’m going to do a couple of posts on how I do story line editing because as much as I love Dare, there are a LOT of things I am going to change.
