#Writing & #Games ~ They Can Coexist…


I’m going to link to an article that helps you see the writing process as a game; but, first, I’ll list my past posts that deal with writing and games

Writing & Games ~ Sometimes It’s Hard To Tell Which Is Which…

The Fiction Game

Also, my whole Series of short stories, Strange Fantasies, owe their existence to a set of cards from a game.

O.K., now on to the article, 5 Tips on How to Make Your Writing Process Feel Like a Game, from Kobo Writing Life.

All I’m going to excerpt are the bullet-point titles from the article and let you know that some of these are more like “mind games” and some are more like what most folks call “games” (plus, you should know there’s a 6th game in one of the Comments to the post…):

The “One Word at a Time” Game

Monsters, Vikings, Ninjas and Battles

“The Stakes Are High” Game

The “If You Lose You Pay” Game

The “Writing Prompts” Challenge

Go ahead, take the article’s link and see if one of the games can help you (or, if you’re not a writer, help one of your writer friends {what? no writer friends? Then, your game is to find a writer and befriend them :-) }
