Sometime this weekend? I’ll give you a catch up of what’s happened in my life so far
-I broke 30,000 words for my NaNoWriMo novel (I help out at the high school there was no school yesterday because it was a p.d. day, so I wrote 7,000 words. Crazy Man!) I’m currently standing at 32,405 words, I’m like 4 days ahead, it’s crazy.
– I read several comics yesterday, a lot of the number 3’s that have come out in the past two weeks, trying to catch up :P
-I finished reading Trigun Maximum Vol. 12 which I got for a dollar
-I started reading Spiderman Reign Trade I have, so far I really like it
and you know what? that all happened yesterday, lots of stuff!
..Me just finishing reading Superman #1 of The New 52. Now I won’t spoil it for anyone that hasn’t read it, but I can say that there are certain things in it that I think possibly could have done without. It’s still great nonetheless, but since it is supposed to be a new rebranding of everything, there wasn’t really much of his backstory in it (I you read Supergirl #1 it kind of has a little something in it) THe art I definitely really liked in this, and the story was well written with everything going on.
So what would I perhaps want to see in future issues? more of a backstory. I mean everyone knows Superman, he’s that iconic I think, but they need to incorporate the backstory in there somehow so it isn’t like someone reads the first issue and thinks to himself, “This isn’t how things started.”
and what’s another thing I personally would want to see sometime? how about the iconic changing into superman in the telephone booth, or ripping the shirt off to reveal the famous S we all know and love? Now that would seriously sweet.
If he ever wanted to try it at all, as soon as November 1st comes along he’d have 50,000 words done in probably like 5 seconds maybe? well maybe at least 10, because you know, even superheroes would need to figure out a storyline, and by the end of the month, he’d probably have a literary career that spends years (By the way, I just finished my 1,667 words for the day. What your supposed to be at for today Day numero 9, is just over 15,000 at 15,003 and I’m 441 words short. No big deal though, piece of cake to type out that many words)
Any of you out there reading this also working on your novel for NaNoWriMo? How’s that coming along? and how many of you are asking yourselves why I’m relating this to Superman?
Well, the answer is quite simple. I was reading Superman today. Not just any ordinary issue of Superman, no sire, but Superman #1 of the new 52. I’ve had it for a while, but just haven’t read it yet so I thought I would actually read it before reading everything else that I have and totally forgetting about it. I’m a slow reader, I like to take my time reading things, which in short – I haven’t finished it yet. It’s already been maybe 40 minutes to an hour. Though I have picked up my pace and reading it at the pace as if someone was talking. I’m still not sure what to think about it, there are parts that I like, parts that I don’t. but it will be good none the less because it’s Superman, and who doesn’t like the Man of Steel, even without the red undies?
