Game On and Valuing our Work

On the weekend I attended the Game On convention which is a part of Sydney's Vivid lights festival. It was super fun with lots of talks about the future of technology, the trends in the gaming industry and so forth. I went to a talk on how to pitch your game and discovered it was pretty much the same as pitching a novel. Know your audience. Be specific. When using adjectives make sure they are descriptive rather than subjective eg don't say, 'This is an awesome game!' Explain what makes it awesome.

I'm also over at the IWSG website with a few other authors and we are discussing valuing our work. Should we offer our work for free so others can profit from it? I'd love to see you over there and hear your opinion.

How to Recover from Writer's Fatigue and More #IWSG

Today I'm over at the IWSG website with a post about 5 Ways to Recover from Writer's Fatigue. I'd love to see you over there.

This post is also doubling up as my IWSG post for this Wednesday because this week I'm busier than normal. I think I'm actually too busy to feel any insecurities. Gasp! (And happy surprise). So instead I'm going to share with you a photo I recently took after the big storms in Sydney. No fallen trees, or broken branches. No debris or general mess created by the storms. Just a pretty plant in my garden that caught my eye.

Have you ever been so busy you just didn't have the time to feel insecure? (I think that's why I like deadlines).

This post was written for the Insecure Writer's Support Group. We post on the first Wednesday of every month. To join us, or learn more about the group, click HERE.
