Learning Life Skills

novelist_screenshotAll writers should be well-versed in computer games, obviously.  Some computer games are simply useful for educating writers about great literature, while others can be used to hone the skills one needs as an aspiring authorThe Novelist, a game due out soon, is certainly an example of the latter.  It may not give a writer much practice in, you know, actually writing, but I’m a great believer in learning life skills from computer games, and every writer needs to know how to balance writing with all those other irritating demands on one’s time.  I suppose it doesn’t hurt to practice being a ghost, either, just to be on the safe side.

After all, what better way to learn how to balance the many demands on your time than putting in a few solid hours every day on a computer game?

  1. When it comes to life skills, I think Burrito Bison, (http://www.burritobisongame.com/) is the best when it comes to learning the life lesson, that while Gummi Bears may look like a cute treat, they are actually evil little sugary kidnappers in dire need of body slamming.
