@petricor: You just joined May 13th. There's a post limit for new accounts, just to make sure it's not a bot account. We used to get overrun with them. I don't know the exact number, but once you've been posting for awhile, the post limit goes away.
When I originally posted .Be the Pencil #1: The Epiphany of "Just Write", and much later .Just Write #0, my plan was always to start doing "Just Write" stories- just snippets from something that inspired me. Whether it's a random picture like in this story, or just dusting off one of my undeveloped character ideas, and taking it for a spin.
When I saw the Primordial Soup picture, I immediately thought of Galactus, and the fact that I hardly ever eat Campbell's soup anymore, even though I loved it as a kid- especially Chicken & Stars, and Chicken Noodle Soup. So I knew I wanted to write something where a can of Primordial Soup evoked in Galactus the same feeling that a can of Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup evokes in me.
Naming him Harold, and the bit about wearing the helmet were just to "explain" why he has a herald, why he wears that helmet, and why he always says, "To me, my herald." It was just fun stuff.
I hope you had as much fun reading this story as I did writing it. Just Write stories will be random bits; all done-in-one stories. See you whenever the next one comes up. Until then, if you've got an idea, you've got the story, so just write.
That's all fo now! Thanks for reading. :^D
Wow, folks- this hit 20 views the same day I posted it. Thanks. That may not seem like a lot, but as far as my posts are concerned, that means traffic is picking up! Don't worry- I'm not getting a big head here- I just enjoy seeing the numbers climb. :)
