I’ve added a new novel to my project list, called Rise of the Mechas: The Third World War. Tentative title for a scifi novel. This idea was originally designed as a role-play website called Gundam Titanium, but has been developing into a novel as I encounter impressive movies like Pacific Rim and inspiring shows like Almost Human. While the concept was based off of the Gundam franchise (I’m a huge fan), I’ve been modifying things to make them unique.
I’m usually more of a fantasy writer, because for some reason magic is easier to wrap my head around, but I really dig the sci-fi genre. The hardest part about writing science-fiction, at least for me, has to do with all of the technological advancements and scientific appeal. I’m no scientist, but I have a pretty big imagination. Some features of this novel will include androids capable of transforming into Mechas, a third world war involving multiple factions, neutral nations, rebels, and secret organizations, as well as enhanced cars. Once I do a quick legal check and mold more of the tech, I might start writing. Because I made it first as a website, designed for other players to incorporate their own ideas, a lot of stuff has already been plotted out and prepared–but I still have a long way to go.
There will most likely be future installments, especially when it comes to exploring space, but right now I am only working on one novel for this project. I’ll definitely be paying more attention to classics like Star Trek as I head into sci-fi territory.
