Thousander Club Update: April 10th

For this week’s Thousander Club update:

Game Hours: 63.50 / 1000
Game Ideas: 221 / 1000

Target: 231

I only did a few hours of work this week, and I fell behind in game ideas again. While this week was packed with errands and projects that were not related to game development, I think a big part of the problem is that I haven’t been waking up as early. I used to wake up around 5:30AM, which gave me time to work on game development before going to my day job. In the past two weeks I have been getting up late. Sometimes I didn’t get up until 7:30AM, which is when I usually finish getting ready and start coding.

I think it is because I haven’t been going to sleep as early, either. When I wake up late, I always feel that I need to make up for the development time in the evening, which means I might not go to sleep right away. It’s a terrible cycle, and it is one that I intend to break.

    I think the late night / sleeping-in cycle is one that all devs can relate to! On the other hand, getting up at 5:30 would probably kill me, so dont beat yourself up over it! A good routine is important though, and I am not doing well on that front myself…

    all the best, b.

  • Thanks, Barry. This morning I woke up around 6:30, but I still managed about 15 minutes of development before leaving for my day job. Sometimes I just have to remember that some progress is better than no progress. Still, I prefer getting 30 minutes to an hour of work in the mornings.
