I am not a person who watches superhero movies.
And yet this weekend I got roped into seeing the new Avengers film at the cinema with nine of my in-laws. Dressed as Captain America. Or Captain America if he wore a cycling bib and modesty shorts.
Having watched the movie, I can definitely say it had superheroes in it. I’m also told that it was a major cinematic feat to bring a swirling story – told over many other movies – together in one last hurrah. See also: Game of Thrones this week.
Weirdly, but perhaps related to the above, I’m spending a lot of time thinking about my fiction at the moment and trying to figure out ‘the bigger picture’. I hope to share more on that with you soon.
Anyway – enjoy the links below…
PS Last week I mentioned Sheffield Content Club
, a meetup I’m starting in my home city. It sold out in under 18 hours and there are nearly 30 people on the waiting list. Cripes!
