Based on real life

The story that I am writing for Rapid City is based largely on my own real life. Metaphorically. I draw from my experience with struggling to write a superhero comic book to understand my protagonists struggle to become a superhero. This can be very helpful and productive at times because if something get sin my way or causes me trouble, I can simply say "How will this be reflected in Rapid City?"

But then there are weird things.

Like just now I was writing, re-writing, and then flashing back to a bitter fight scene between Kinetic and his girlfriend...all the while have the cutest little domestic "night in" with my own girlfriend. It is strange shifting gears like that.

At the same time, those are the moments where I really feel like the experiment is working and I am really learning how to do this.
