Today’s Topic – How I use Role-playing games to test out my world and practice my storytelling techniques
I love gaming. I have been running campaigns and stories since I was a preteen. They inspire my imagination. They make me dream. However, as I have been getting older, I have stopped playing them as much. I am two busy. I do not have the time to waste on having fun?
Luckily, I overthink things. I know the rewards that I have earned from telling stories through tabletop role-playing games. It makes me a creative thinker. I am always sought out at work for creative problem solving. I never get stuck writing a story because I create a character that I cannot motivate to continue down the plot line.
I have also had the benefit of improving and testing my world over years. I have learned what works and what does not work for me. It has made both my storytelling and my world building become more effective over time. Join Michael and me as we talk about the benefits of tabletop RPGs for authors of all stripes.
