Writing seems to be a cycle that repeats itself: brainstorm, outline, write, edit, beta, edit, edit, submit. While waiting on edits and submissions other works begin their lives and today is no exception. I’m beginning work on a new book.
Spirit Hackers took me over two years to write and this time I’m determined to finish this one in record (for me) time: 6-months maximum. Can this be done? Perhaps. Life always gets in the way along with a drive that isn’t consistently there but I think setting a goal is always helpful. For the past four or five months I’ve thrown around the idea of writing a time travel story, which in itself is difficult. Only a handful of books and movies have done it well and it’s a minefield of plot holes. I consider myself a student of time travel (Back to the Future being my favorite movie of all time) and it’s a challenge I’m up for. Hell, I may even write a great book in the genre!
This past week I broke out my good ‘ol lefty notebook and began outlining & brainstorming this time travel beast. It’s coming together pretty well but there’s still plot points and world-building that needs to be done before I get behind my keyboard. This is the most exciting time with a new WIP. It’s the most creative and the world is my oyster.
So with that said, I welcome into my writing universe my new time travel book: Loopback. Let the games begin.
