A Conscious Choice

Bump. Sever. Burn. Stump. Boil. Speed. Blunt.

When writing Welcoming Mad Era, I made a conscious choice to have the text feel “Martian”.

“What does that mean?”

Well, Mars energy is a fast one, it cuts and reacts, angers and intensifies, it simmers and is quite frankly, blunt. It chops. It punches. It races. It aggravates. It hurts.

Like the rhythm of the text, the short chapters aren’t on accident. I wanted to channel Mars in the writing as much as I channeled Mars through Madera. It can be an inquired taste, yes, just like the character, Madera. There are times I feel like I didn’t do it enough. Other times, I’m compelled to explain myself.
