In old journals I aped his writing style, at first it was under the disguise of me actually wanting to be like him—escape into that world and try to inhabit the character. Except at this point, I actually wanted to be Bart Allen, so I would ape his writing style from this issue right down to his handwriting. In some old journals, I would write my normal day to day events like I was Bart Allen living David Press’s life. What this really enabled was a texture of language at that age through writing like I am the character as well as allowing a concept of a fantastic character into every day life.
Years later, I was given advice that I should reverse engineer a comic book I loved and write the script for that issue to match up with the actual published issue. I didn’t realize it at the time but I was beginning to do this in high school, and then I started novelizing the Terminal Velocity run to learn to write visually.
