Wings’ Review Forum: How to Save the World

Published by under Review Forums

I provide advice about how to write novels, comic books and graphic novels. Most of my content applies to fiction-writing in general, but I also provide articles specifically about superhero stories.

‘Sup. I’m Wings, a Californian, a student, and a scatterbrained writer.

How to Save the World is a superhero novel, filled with heroism, self-discovery, friendship, and a little hilarity. It’s about a dysfunctional team of superpowered teenagers and their struggle to defeat a less-than-sane genius principal and an veritable army of their hypnotized classmates while maintaining steady B averages. As if high school wasn’t hard enough. When the fate of the world rests upon the shoulders of an impulsive pessimist with a short temper, her naive best friend who’s fallen hard for a queen bee, a quiet paraplegic searching for his older brother, and the sixth grader who’s probably smarter than all of them…well, we’d better cross our fingers for luck. They’re gonna need it.

For more, it’s probably best right now if you read old posts by me. You’ll catch up to the plot and characters best that way.

Target Audience

I’m pretty flexible. However, for violence and several dark scenes, the over-thirteen range. I have a little romance and some tearful moments for girls, and PLENTY of violence for guys (and, if you’re a girl like me, girls too).

My Approach to Criticism

We fanfiction writers are notoriously light armored, but I’m tougher than most. Just try to be nice, okay?

The Works I’m Most Familiar With

The closest thing that I’m reading to a superhero work thus far is the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. It’s rather confusing, but laugh out loud hilarious, especially in the last few books. I read almost all fantasy (anything with the word “dragon” in the title usually gets me) and I agree with Ragged Boy about the LOTR books, I didn’t like them much (though I might have enjoyed them more if my seventh grade teacher hadn’t made me read them).

Thanks for your help.
