    It was helpful. However, after reading this, I have solidified the fact that I have no interest in game writing.

    Mary Oliver, a poet and a teacher of poetry, said ”a poem is always a blending of statement and form”. This book is about form of video game writing. It doesn’t advice you on *what* you should write about. But it tells how you should do it, whatever it is you’re going to write. Stories from the field. Practical advice. War stories. Design and writing excercises. There should be more this kind of guides on how to navigate any reality.

    Didn't finish it! Maybe I'll pick it up again in the future. Too dry and academic though I skimmed ahead and there are some good bits of information down the road. But a book about games should be more fun to read. What I got from this is that being a video game writer is not so glamorous as it sounds. While one will deal with characters and story, some writers deal with technical documentation and writing about gameplay mechanics. This book covers all types of video game writing.
