'Becoming a Game Writer'
 
Just thought that this week's Ask the Experts column on 'Becoming a Game Writer' would be of interest!

If you're a game writer with a blog, feel free to share your link here for examples for aspiring game writers.

The Narrative Design Exploratorium
 
Hello All,

I saw Beths note on the IGDA Writers SIG Mailing list, an thought I'd post a link to my blog.

I work @ Relic Entertainment as Narrative Designer, a new postion I developed with the studio and THQ. It's a radical new postion, that rises above writing to deal with the design of narrative elements throughout the game, in the hopes of creating a cohesive experience for the player.

http://narrativedesign.typepad.com/
The Narrative Design Exploratorium, is my newest blog dedicated to exploring narrative, design, production, and theory.

All the best,
Stephen E. Dinehart

video game books
 
I am new to these forums so am not quite sure whether this is the appropriate thread to be on. Please feel free to redirect me if i am way off here!

I am trying to become a successful video games journalist. However, i need to brush up on my knowledge of the industry, and also of video game culture and history in general. Could anyone in the know direct me to some particularly informative books currently on the market?

Another small concern of mine is that i am female, and i am not sure if female journalists are uncommon within the video game industry, and if so whether this would make it even harder to become successful. If anyone has any advice on this that would be great.
