This is an opening paragraph in which I’ll draw attention to the fact that I don’t know how to start this. There, now I have a way to start this.
I’m an avid gamer who’s set her sights on a career in games journalism. I started out by doing a “Let’s Play” (I hate that term) channel on YouTube, but came to a realization: I love talking about games, but I suck at talking about them. So, what better way to resolve this than to start writing about games instead?
I’m woefully aware of the fact that games journalism is a difficult field to break into, but hey: something something you miss 100% of the shots…you know the rest. And hey, things aren’t completely hopeless! At the time of writing, I do freelance articles for Cubed3 and GameSpew on a voluntary basis, and I’m in the process of looking for some paid full- or part-time work. Throw in university and trying not to starve to death, and you have the delightful cocktail that is my life. It’s a tough drink to down, but somebody’s gotta do it, right?
See you on the other side,
