Conflict

Staying true to my experiment, one of my biggest challenges seems to be conflict.

If the story of Kinetic’s struggle to start being a superhero is to mirror my own struggles to start writing a superhero comic book, then his biggest initial obstacle is just doing it.

How do you go from not doing it to doing it? You start doing it!

The trouble with that is, that it is hard to dramatize (especially in an action-heavy genre) the LACK of something to do, and the internal motivation to get out there and do it anyway.

Usually you can conceive of an antagonist who embodies an opposing ideal (altruism vs selfishness). But when the concepts being personified are action and inaction……

Dramatizing inaction is practically an oxymoron. It winds up looking a lot like moping.

Well, here’s hoping that Kinetic finds a worthy antagonist real soon.
