I now refer to myself as a freelance games journalist. When people ask me ‘What do you do for a living?’, no longer do I say ‘oh well, I write about games a bit, but I have another job as well because I don’t earn much from it’. Now I look them straight in the eyes and shout ‘I. WRITE. ABOUT. GAAAMES!’. It doesn’t earn me many friends, but hell, it earns me plenty of video games.
I’m now writing for several gaming sites, including Gamasutra, Gamezebo, GameSetWatch, DIYGamer, IndieGames, and some other sites too which probably have the word Game in them. I’m having an almighty blast.
I’ve also got a sort-of portfolio now i.e. a page onto which I’ve chucked tons of links to stuff I’ve written. Check it out if you’re, you know, bored.
Of course, if you have any freelance work – reviews, previews, interviews, features, etc – I am your man. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
