Great cover, right? I’m so excited about our guest post by Jennifer M. Eaton today! I know you want to hear what’s on her mind as much as I do, so without further ado …. I give you, Ms. Eaton …
If you could choose, what super power would you pick?
When I set out to write “The First Day of the New Tomorrow” I knew it was going to be a superhero story. But that was about it.
I decided to start off with a girl not unlike myself as a kid. I think I was pretty normal… not really happy with my looks, wished I was better in sports, etc. I modeled my character after what I considered the lowest of the low in a teenager’s self-esteem.
Then the fun stuff started. Since it was my story, I got to PICK what super power to give myself. Hey, good deal, huh? So I went for the big tamale… omnipotence. Well, almost omnipotence. There has to be rules for everything, right?
And there’s also consequences. But that’s not the fun part, so let’s push that aside for a second.
Imagine yourself in high school, and one day you wake up, and your every thought becomes a reality.
Pretty cool, huh?
Yeah, Maya thinks so too. Until things begin to go very wrong.
It’s not easy to control your thoughts, is it? Ever been angry at someone? It can get pretty ugly, can’t it?
Maya finds out that omnipotent power can be as much a curse as it is a blessing, and not all things can be undone.
That kind of makes super powers not sound so super, doesn’t it?
So what do you think you would do? If you could have any power imaginable, what super power would you pick, and maybe more importantly—What would you do with it?
