In this post I use Marvel’s character “The Sentry” ad an example of how to write a story where the protagonist is an all powerful character.
There are many things in life I am passionate about but none can compare with a good story. Since I was a kid I always loved reading stories out of books but I always found that to be only one way of consuming a story. I enjoyed movies since I can remember and similarly I have been an avid video-gamer (especially when the game had a vivid plot and solid characters to offer).
My mother is always happy to humiliate me in front of Zita or my friends with stories of me as a kid spending time sitting on the ground close to the empty sofa. According to her memories I used to tell myself stories for my own enjoyment. She also says that quite often I believed my own horror stories and ended up having nightmares forcing her to wake-up and come by my side – and, trust me, she is most definitely lying when she says that; I have been always as brave as a knight!
This category will contain reviews for books, comics, manga, anime, movies and games.
To be honest, I was quite doubtful on whether this was the right way of approaching it, but I think this improves the structure overall (I might create sub-categories if it gets too confusing but for now it seems pretty ok).
The reviews will be tagged appropriately to indicate what the review is about – this to facilitate whoever wants to concentrate on a single expression of the art of writing.
