Wannabe Storywriter/Game Designer seeking tips

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I've made my decision to enter the business I so love and have always supported, the only way I can, and that's writing stories for games and eventually a hope to also be able to design them. So my question is: "Can someone give me some guidance"? I do believe I have the tools, I just need to polish them. I have a persevering personality and will work my ass off to get something right. This IS what I want. In case it is of any help, my specialty would be the RPG genre in which I have a few idols, especially from JRPG stories. In the literary genre I am a fan of the fantastic (through Tolkien) and the sci-fi genre (Jules Verne and H.G. Wells). But I am willing to get better at other genres. I am currently studying at the University of Minho in Braga, Portugal as a student of European Languages and Cultures. I also have interest and background in philosophy, history and a little psychology. If anyone wants to take a look at my (in work) pootfolio page, you can do so at: http://kezradx.byethost11.com Thanks in advance. edit: I have forgotten to mention that I AM passionate about writing. When I was 15 years-old I finished my first "book" which was 101 pages long. It had some plagiarisms but it still got me fans (:P) and lots of praising. I'd love to upload it for people to read but it is in Portuguese (my native langauage) and not many people would understand it. My second work when I was that age was a literary adaptation of the Manga/Anime Neon Genesis Evangelion which I stil, have somewhere in my drawers but which I consider a failure but still good if you dunno the original :P [Edited by - KezraPlanes on January 20, 2009 7:51:33 PM]

I've read some of the FAQ's on your site... Veru informative thank you Mr.Tom. I am currently reading articles from the IGDA Writers SIG.

But could you please - if at all possible - tell me if you could read some of what I've written and say what you think about it?

edit: also could you please tell me if you think I should get a free or student account in the IGDA forums?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Kezra,

I just quickly browsed your site, and checked out the chronicles of gaea story. I didn't get very far because I found a couple mistakes in grammar and spelling. Just a suggestion that you should proof read your site a little bit. I do plan on reading through the rest of the story in a little bit and let you know what I think.

O_O you did? Gosh I thought there weren't any... Goodness gracious... I'm not native but still it isn't any excuse. Thanks for warning me! I'll be on it right away...

edit: You are right... I must have uploaded the first revision, because the first paragraph is badly written, thank again
