The Phone books are in! The Phone books are in!

OK, not the phone books per se, but The Official Index to the Marvel Universe, which — as you all should know by now — I’m currently contributing to (beginning with this issue, #2).

While the issue doesn’t break out who did what, I did about 10 entries for the Spider-Man section of the edition. In issue #3 I did (am doing) more entries.

Each entry is about 350–400 words, and just takes hours to do as it involves cataloging all of the creative staff, all of the various characters, items locations, and then penning a synopsis the entire story. Sounds easier than it actually is, and it doesn’t sound easy at all.

Not that I’m complaining, I’m enjoying writing about something that I love, while doing something that I love to do. Not bad work if you can get it.
