Unlike what I had thought, writing the second book is more challenging than the first. Higher stakes, higher expectations, and a more complex setting and theme than anything I've ever worked on. But what has been most challenging to me is to keep the creativity alive when day to day I live in a black and white business world focused on hustle, productivity, and sales. It left a lot of my first drafts feeling cold and distant as it mirrored my day to day life... an optimized process rather than an experience. Hence there's nothing quite like traveling to free the mind and reconnect with what's inside to unleash some truly powerful prose. Very excited to see where the Dawn of Man story is going to take me. It's a story that needs to be told, and hopefully serve as a cautionary tale to Gen Y, Z, and A. Dawn of man explores the world in 2048 when the rich seek immortality while the poor are 'drugged' numb by Virtual Reality as an escape from the meaningless existence that Automation has brought to rise. It's a scary time in human history, one we are likely to experience if we don't keep incredible foresight onto what we value.
