Bringing the FUN to Superhero.

I really wish the word fun was in the word Superhero because that would have made my post title so much better. I made an announcement on Twitter recently that I am most positively certain I am switching genres and will focus on being a full time super hero writer. (Though, sadly, not a full time writer, but that’s another story for another post.) Before, I’ve been primarily an author of contemporary young adult fiction, but the more time I spend in the superhero world, the more I want to stay in it.

Speaking of, have you read the books by members of the Pen and Cape Society? They’re brilliant.

So back to my point. Writing superheroes is fun.

There are heroes and villains and anti-heroes. Crazy origin stories, terrifying arch nemesis’,  super powers, weaknesses, kooky character names, technology that doesn’t have to make sense and more. There are no rules to superheroes because each hero is unique. I’m really bad at following the rules and keeping everything inside a neat little box. I don’t have to do that with this genre. If I want to write a hero who’s actually a jackrabbit and fights the Cockroach God, I can. (No, I can’t. Ian Thomas Healy already did that. But you get the idea.)

Superhero stories are only limited by your imagination. And that’s just fun.
