I am currently putting the finishing touches to a medieval story that is titled "An Unusual Case", and it’s rather long so will take a while to run through online. I hadn’t planned on making this an online release, but have decided to let it go this way, just because. Sometimes life doesn’t have to make sense. Sometimes things just are.
The new idea for my next story came to me today as I was at work. As an amateur writer I sometimes have flashes, and those flashes can inspire me towards an idea. Today I had one of those flashes and it was awesome.
This flash came in the form of one word and that word was 'pokerface'. Yes, you heard or saw me right. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out how this whole Internet thing works. Am I writing you a letter that you’ll read at another time? Am I talking to you like a speaker in a conference? I dunno. I get really confused and then I’m asking the cat for advice and that never goes well because the advice always leads to drinking.
What was I saying? Oh, that’s right. Pokerface. Yes, the word that will lead to a story, hopefully. One can always hope. I saw that word today in some magazine or book. It doesn’t matter where I saw it just that I saw it and that led to a vison of a master criminal. Think Batman-style. He will take over a city, probably Gosney (not the music project). If he’s a master criminal then he will face a master superhero, or superheroes. I have three lined up so far. Weaselmask, a man in a suit with a mask of a weasel. His superpowers are yet to be decided. But he will be cool, more of a hand to hand fighter, I’m thinking. Next is Duckforce, a man in blue spandex with chest armour to match the spandex. His powers will be more traditional. Maybe something do to with the water so I can connect him to a duck? Yeah, it’s a stretch but I’ll work on it. The third is an old favourite of mine. This was a superhero created by my old friend Tim Wood, and I’ve made adjustments to him over the years. He’s called Spiderface, and he’s kinda like an activist version of Spiderman. His powers are more celestial, more like an atheist angel, you could say. I want to add more superheroes, make this like an avenger’s kind of thing. Pokerface is gonna be one tough duuuuude to bring down and will need a team dedicated to this goal. I have a couple of ideas but I need to ratify things before I give anything away.
Will keep you guys up to speed. Peace out.
