I’ve had a lot to think about these past days. Uprooting myself from my home, going back to where I spent most of my youth, planning some sort of new future. Right now, everything is up in the air: perhaps most importantly, I don’t know if I will continue working on games after Secrets of Grindea is released.
Part of me wants to, absolutely. It’s been a great ride, and I’ve connected with so many amazing people through this journey. But there’s also been some pretty bad times, and I have this voice inside me that wants to give writing the proper chance it deserves. I’ve always wanted to tell stories to soothe those in need, and though it’s in some way what I’ve done by making Secrets of Grindea, novel writing has always been what I really pictured for myself.
It’s also possible I’ll do something completely different. While I’m helping people, in a way, by telling stories through writing or game development, maybe that’s not enough. Perhaps I’ll look for something where I truly feel I can make a difference. Something where I can help people, or animals, more directly.
As you can see, a lot of thoughts going through my mind here. For now, maybe best I can do is give it some time and see what comes naturally. Please forgive any ramblings and irregular updates during this strange time.
