Talking ‘Bout a Resolution

The New Year is a time for looking both back and forward, for seeing how you’ve done and making plans for doing better.

One of my resolutions this year (as I mentioned before) is to make regular updates to this site. So far, so good, although the year’s just starting now, so we’ll have to see how it all plays out.

This week, I have something to help some of you out there with a possible resolution: to become a published writer. Earlier this year, Anna M. Dobritt asked me to write an essay about being a freelancer in the adventure games industry. She published it in the apparently short-lived RPG Freelancers Guide, but I’m making it available to you now for free.

I often get asked how to break into the adventure games industry as a freelancer and what you need to do once you’re there. (I wrote a feature article on this once in the early days of InQuest (Gamer) Magazine.) “The Freelancing Life” is a short and sweet answer. Enjoy!
