What’s next for Godbreaker?
So over the course of the last few months, I have been waking up earlier. This may not seem like a big deal to some, but let me just tell you—I am not a morning person.
Never have been, and for the roughly fifteen years that I worked for “The Man” I was always second or third shift. Slowly, over the years of having kids and no longer working second shift, I’ve gone from waking up at 9am, to 8am, to 7am, and then recently I just said screw it and started waking up at 5am. While not my natural proclivity, it affords me a chunk of blessedly peaceful time that hasn’t already been accounted for. It’s like I bought back time, and all I have to pay for it is a little grogginess.
I usually get in two writing sessions throughout each day, 6 days a week (sometimes 7). One in the morning, and one in the afternoon. Unfortunately, at some point in time, stories also need to be edited, and new stories need to be conceptualized, both of which cuts into those sessions. Enter our heroic 5 o’clock hour! Turns out that being half-asleep at a dimly-lit dining room table in a silent house is amazing for both brainstorming new stories and editing already-written ones, which leaves my two writing sessions open for what they were intended for: Putting words on paper.
So, in my cherished morning hour, I have been working on some world building. For what? I’m so glad you asked. I have been developing a science-fiction story based in the universe of the Godbreaker Series!
My wonderful readers have shown so much love for Shortstack, Stuber, Teran, and the rest of the crew. Although their story has come to an end, I really wanted to do more with some of the constructs that I invented for that story, and I also had a general outline for a sci-fi I’ve been wanting to write for quite a while, and all of the sudden—BAM! I realized they go together like peas and carrots. I’ve now filled up almost an entire notebook with characters, concepts, backgrounds, and illustrations, and I love where it’s going. Once I finish Harden 6, I’ll be starting in on it, and then I’ll share some details out about it
