Expanding Creativity

24 May

I really don’t know what to write.

Not only for this blog post, but for my stories as well. I have a plethora of first drafts waiting in the wings for me to continue them, but my sporadic mind tends to latch onto new ideas before I can finish one.

Now my mind has expanded to some other types of writing.

With our other blog Double Jump, Rachel and I have been playing more video games, which are fantastic. Video games has always been one of our hobbies, and we kind of forgot about them while pursuing our writing dreams. Yet, video games have always been an inspiration when it comes to creating our worlds.

The art, the stories, the characters… It all expands our minds and creativity. As writers, we’re more mindful of the sheer amount of effort and heart that goes into creating these games. Like collaborating on a story, the teams behind video games work together to bring entire worlds to life.

To us, that’s amazing.

Those other types of writing I’ve been thinking of? They’re video game and comic book scripts. Video game art has made me think again of my sketchbooks chilling in bins in the back of my closet.

Maybe it’s time I exercise those creative muscles again.

    Creativity is hard. Sometimes I sit in front of the typewriter and all I can think is “What the hell happened to my computer?” 😎
