I’ve had another few articles published here and there online (beyond my regular columns at Massively Overpowered).
Firstly, over at MMO Bro, I talk about old school grind, and how it was more of a “participation trophy” than modern convenience.
Next, I tried something new. I sold an article on some of my struggles living on the autism spectrum to the online medical magazine You and Me.
I have to admit it’s a bit scary to be sharing my personal struggles on so public a forum, especially as this article does paint something of a bleak picture of my life. To be honest I’m not wholly sure what motivated me to do this. I guess I thought it might be cathartic.
I think I also wanted to stretch my wings as a writer a bit. I’m happy working in games journalism, but it’s nice to flesh out my portfolio a bit. Maybe it will lead to more opportunities down the line. Specialization is the autistic way, but I don’t need to be a complete one trick pony.
