A New Challenger Approaches!
I’ve wanted to do some amateur writing on video games for some time now. Nothing major; just my personal thoughts and ideas on video games, their history, their culture and their impact on me and my life. I’ve attempted to get into this kind of thing a thousand times before, constantly avoiding publishing anything. I’ve always felt I was a poor writer, and it’s nothing for me to get thousands of words in on a project, and delete the entire thing in the blink of an eye. A never ending cycle of wanting to project my thoughts and feelings, and simultaneously thinking I’ve never done a good enough job on anything worth sharing.
I’m not going to do that any longer. My writing, as well as my willingness to commit my thoughts to written word, will only improve from actually releasing work as opposed to, you know, doing nothing. I’m not looking to become known for anything with my writing, just to get my thoughts out there and off of my chest. So why wait? Why be a perfectionist? As they say, there’s no time like the present.
I plan to release a new write-up on video games on a weekly basis, releasing every Tuesday give or take as real-life takes its natural twists and turns. Starting with tomorrow’s release, where I’ll go a lot more in depth about my own personal relationship with video games, and how it has developed over the years.
I love video games. I love everything about them, and I hope that will shine through in my work in time to come. I feel very deeply that it is paramount for human beings to have a great connection; a great passion for some kind of hobby. I have my great connection with video games, and I look forward very much to sharing it with you in the weeks to follow.
Until then, take care, and thank you. ❤
