I have a piece in mind about a character who faces extrodinary obsticles that are beyond what would be expected of a human being. Think: Homer's Odyssey, but more modern. So I want this story to be filled with tons of hyperbole, like walking 1,000 miles, for example. I've chipped away at this one off and on for a couple years now, but I'm really having difficulty making so much hyperbole really "live". I know it's very ambitous for an inexperienced writer, but I think when done right the results are literally epic. Any advice?
