"The Wounds of Discovery" is wrapped up
I just wrapped up the sixth and final part of "Wounds" today. I would suggest that if you haven't read "Heart of Ice, Heart of Wrath" at Mockingbird to look that up first. There is a complex double structure I've been using for "Wounds of Discovery" that depends at a small level on a reader remembering what I wrote about Mr. Freeze. The two levels of structure work as follows: I examine Batman villains on the spectrum of loss and desire and thread that through a particular aspect of brokenness that defines the motivation and/or gimmick of particular Batman villains. I'm not going to give away the villains but I WILL share with you this, that I run with a tryptich of the heart, mind, and body.
