I am MJ Muñoz. I am an aspiring author who dabbles in drawing and can’t seem to stop analyzing the world around me. I am passionate about good stories. My taste is eclectic, but the stories I love are probably tied together by the human journey of overcoming the self. Cool fights help, too.
MJMUNOZ.COM is the place for all my work. I post my analysis, art and fiction here. I am starting the Story Over Everything series today as a production log and development journal of sorts to give you an insight into my creative process and spurn me on to write more and finish ongoing projects. The plan is to release this as a podcast on various formats and
The typical episode will have the following 4 segments.
WIP – What is the status of my current projects: progress made, length of time on the backburner?
Completed Works – What did I accomplish this week as a storyteller?
Lessons Learned – What did I learn from the world of story this week?
Fabula Ex Machina – Part brainstorm, part drafting out loud
Spoilers for SOE 1, it goes off the rails, clocking in at about 50 minutes and sprawling beyond the scope of these segments. I will add a “mentioned” heading for it and list from memory the things I touched on while getting to my main point.
I am a self taught writer. I am a Junior College dropout and I work for a small business in Southern California. I have a beautiful wife and family and much of my time goes into them. My faith is a foundational part of my life and very much informs my political perspectives and my writing. I recently described my massive “Holy Heroes” project as a combination of The Chronicles of Narnia and Marvel Comics. Super Heroes, shonen anime, tokusatsu and the best of Star Wars are my major fictional influences. I think all that woven together by the Bible will make for some amazing stories and I want to share them with the world.
