In a Dream

The premise of Jake and the Dynamo came to me in a dream.

I think I had been watching Shugo Chara!, the anime based on Peach-Pit’s classic magical girl manga, before I went to bed, so that was probably the impetus, but I had a dream about a high-schooler who got sent back to fifth grade because of an error on his transcript. There, a little girl picked on him, and he couldn’t do anything about it because she was just a kid.

When I woke up, I thought that was a really funny idea, but I couldn’t think of anything to do with it. I mulled it over for a few days and finally said, “Well, what if she’s a magical girl?”

Pretty Dynamo, complete with name, look, and a basic idea of her powers, popped immediately into my head.

So there you go.

Continuing both Jake and the Dynamo and R&M

I’m spending the day working on fourteenth chapter of Jake and the Dynamo, which for some reason I decided needed to contain a lot of statistics puns. I don’t know why I did this to myself.

Chapter 3, of course, will post on Monday. Are you ready to see Pretty Dynamo fight Godzilla? I know I am.

Also going to see if I can finish up a Rag & Muffin novella while I’m at it.
