The following blog post carries the personal thoughts of Elder Prince, founder of Blossomsoft Games.
Combining game development with a busy DoorDash schedule can be very challenging, especially when you don’t have access to a PC. But I’ve found another alternative to better use this unpleasant situation to my artistic advantage. By utilizing my wait time in my car and at restaurants, I’ve been able to write short stories in small chunks on my smartphone.
So far, I’ve written 4,000 out of 10,000 words of a fun DoorDash-themed sci-fi story. Using ChatGPT as a tool to assist in the writing process has been helpful in reworking and revising my work more efficiently, but ultimately, I have the final say on what stays and what goes. It’s a paragraph by paragraph process, where I’m still at the helm.
In 2015, I published a 30,000 words short story, “Timeloop | A Dark Time Travel Tale: Project Dechentreiter” which can be found on Amazon. More reviews can also be read at Goodreads. I received help from Paolo Baroni, who I haven’t heard from since, but I hope he’s still in good shape and following my blog.
In the near future, I plan to add a section for short stories and novels on my website. I have so many ideas for so many genres: adventure, sci-fi, horror, the gospel, and so on.
In conclusion: I currently feel trapped and burdened by my debts (a cycle that’s very hard to break), but I’m trying to make the best of my experience with DoorDash. Despite my concerns that it may cause wear and tear on my car, this freelance job offers so many advantages compared to other normal jobs. But NOTHING can match the satisfaction and enjoyment I get from working on my game development projects such as Eternal Eden, I am so looking forward to return to it as soon as possible!
