Biography

Character biographies are a bit of a problem.

The original idea of the "Who's Who" was to fill in background details that didn't naturally arise in the course of the story but were still important to me in understanding the character's personality and motivations.

The problem is, I didn't just write background in the bios, I wrote what was "currently" happening to, the details that were documented in the story.

But I couldn't document a character's' "future" (even though I know it), because it would spoil plots for anyone who was reading the story. So the bios went completely out of date for recurring characters.

This is a long-winded way of saying I'm going to stop writing bios until I figure out a better way to do it. I have some already finished or in progress, so I'll release those in the next update or two, then I'll stop and concentrate on other things.

About this blog

The Heroes Universe is an ongoing work of fiction, conceived and chiefly plotted by David Meadows, with help from a group of friends, over a 30-year period.

I am slowly documenting the Universe on this web site.

This blog is a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of that history.

If you're new here, the series of posts listed below will explain what it's all about. I hope...
