I chuckled the other day when I read this brilliant interview with Curtis Jobling, author of the Wereworld series.
It was this question that made me smile:
If you could have an author superpower what would it be and why?
Oh I would have to have the Underpants of Bestsellingness I think! It means that every time I pulled on these under-crackers, my books would go crazy gangbusters in the bookstores – that’s definitely the superpower that I would go with.
Keeping with yesterday’s superpowered theme, it got me thinking; what would be my own superpower be?
Well, I think I would be Create-More-Hours-In-The-Day-Man. How cool would that be? Especially at the moment, when I seem to be on constant deadline. I would snap my fingers (or maybe even my toes) and at least ten brand new hours would appear, meaning I could get everything done that I needed to do, plus have time to read a mountain of comics, eat biscuits, fire up the Playstation and watch this week’s Bake Off!
Of course, I would also like to be Never-Include-A-Typo-In-His-Manuscript-Man, but having more than one power is a bit greedy, wouldn’t you say Supes?
So, what would your superpower be?
