I'm a long time game enthusiast possessing a strong writing background, and curious if either of those skills can be of possible use in game development. By whatever means I can, I'm seeking to garner some experience in game design & development be the games board, tabletop, card, video, what-have-you. My lifelong writing experience leans on the multifaceted side and has included case logging, analysis reporting, script writing, script editing, story outlining, line editing, copy writing, copy editing, report summarizations, proposals, lesson planning, document presentation, proofreading, ghostwriting--and the list goes on--in both my professional and personal life. And just for a mild change of pace, I have been volunteering for voice over as well from time to time. I'm hoping that the Global Game Jam can help give me a glimpse into what game development is like, as well as experience and some future work too!
