The job of the game designer basically consists in knowing how to communicate. Communication is a process that includes several parts. One of these parts is the production of documents. Creating documents consists of a fundamental skill: writing.
The skill that opens all doors is the ability to write. When you dominate the editorial office, you have a lot of career opportunities. It’s also one of the things most of us neglect when we’re young.
I notice a terrible demotion in recent years. Syntax, semantics and spelling are definitely at an all-time low. Someone says it’s the applications we write in, I’m not an expert. I just observe. People’s writing skills have been terribly low lately.
In my days I happen to hear people read aloud. At work, when I give lessons, or even in public transport. No tone, no points, no cadence.
Care of your editorial skills. Write every single day. Read aloud what you write. Listen again. The doors will open for you!
