I've been a member of the forums for a while, reading lots without posting.
Three months ago, I discovered that being a Narrative Designer was an actual career path. Since then I've devoured all the information I can find about being a game writer and have used that information to start writing my own game script - complete with scenario design, scripts, etc. I've been blogging my progress here
and would love to get some feedback from you all.
I also recently sent in an application to a game developer in my area that I truly want to work for. However, I'm very aware that I'm not guaranteed a job, so I've looked into other developers around my area with gamedevmap. More importantly, I'm just glad that I've figured out the work I'd like to do with the rest of my life.
