Well, in light of a frustrating encounter with an invasive computer repairman, I’m feeling very… defiant, today.
So I’m going to help you break the rules. Sound good? I think it does.
Thus far, the most complete list of rules I’ve found are Superhero Nation’s Five First-Time Novelist’s Mistakes. SN’s writer, B. McKenzie, is actually a very brilliant man besides being an old friend, but as I read these rules he’s laid out I keep finding ways to break them. He’s a pretty good sport, though, so I’m sure he won’t mind.
So… ‘on with it’, am I right?
