This year’s project is different than year’s past. I’m delving into the world of superheroes, but it does have a familiar ring to it.
It’s set in the same world as what I created for Canyons of Steel. It begins in 1971.
The original heroes of this long story are:
- Britannia (Melanie Coopers)
- Canadien (Jean Pierre Turgeon)
- Mannekin (Donelda Stewart)
- Free Spirit (Regina Morgan-Simms)
- Yellow Jacket (Richard Hargrove)
They are based on some of the superhero archetypes found in comics, some being patriotic figures, dark avengers, pulp hero style detectives, magic users and what not. There are feats of bravery, powers of invincibility, car chases, and even touching moments with family.
This year’s NaNoWriMo is called The Heroic League Project.
