* Just want to emphasize that this is simply a fun way to pass the time, and shouldn't be taken as a serious writing project.*
In June, I had said I was going to do a month of writing based on Scriptwriting projects, the comic I pitched, and heroes I had created for fun.
Well, the "month" has lasted almost all Summer long!
I started by writing an origin for The Red Knight, a hero I made for a one-act play. The Red Knight II, a legacy character, came next, followed by two other heroes I'd created some time ago.
Elements of those first profiles led to more writing and more characters. Profiles and origins were becoming more and more intricate.
Eventually, I had villains (a lot harder to create than heroes), at least one team, an event or two, and a loosely connected history.
Around July, I found my notes from Scriptwriting for Cryptic, the TV show I came up with, then comic I pitched. I challenged myself to expand on some them and let my creative side go wild! I discovered that bits of Cryptic fit pretty well with my super-folks.
Just like that, I had my very own universe. The Scooterverse, if you will!
The Scooterverse has been a great way to pass the Summer, and has reminded me how much fun it is to write this kind of stuff.
Next step: some Scooterverse-inspired short stories, maybe??
