Well, it turns out that I'm actually a good writer! My samples following their prompt turned out to be what they were looking for. Instead of being on a backlist, I was offered a contract job for the next four months. It's a small job, though. But for the next four months I will be writing for Academagia! My understanding is that the game is still in beta testing, however you can still sign up and of course you can check it out. It looks really promising and fun! And I get to write for it. I'm really stoked and generally happy about this (because that's probably a normal reaction to being told you're a good writer and being offered a job).
So, that's the news! I'm excited to be a part of this because I really do think the product is fun and worthwhile. It may not be original, but unlike other games with similar styles of game play, Academagia actually takes itself seriously, or at least its creators do. The game is well put together with gorgeous artwork and a steampunky interface.
But that's enough from me. I'm glad to be a part of this and thought you all should know about it!
