National Novel Writing Month is upon us again, and once again I’ve jumped in recklessly. I want to share my work as I go, but I don’t want to publicly post the sketchiness and shittiness of first draft writing. So instead, I’m going to post about the inspirations, the influences, the sources for my current project.
A huge influence on this novel are the superhero comics I’ve been reading all my life, particularly the weirder, more cosmic comics. Stories of alien encounters and alien gods, time travel, multiple dimensions, strange magic and mad science, journeys into the mind and soul. Stories written and drawn on an epic, colorful canvas.
