(Music that sheds light on my origins as a writer. Might be a bigger series. Working out the kinks right now.)
One song is responsible for this blog and every other piece of fiction I have created since 2002. One single tune that served as primary inspiration for ideas that I’m still working on to this day.
That song is “Hero”.
There are other reference points like Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man (which featured this song on its soundtrack), superheroes in general, and a general need to write, but this song played over all of that. Every hero I made up in high school, every failed comic script, every story beat that has been sketched out, from fantasy to sci-fi to anything in between, this song has played in the back of my head.
You don’t have to tell me it’s shameful, but sometimes you have to own it.
