Every Writer Should be Playing Video Games
Video game are saving my vacation, and gave me my book idea
I experienced very few vacations during my childhood, but I’ve embarked on quite a lot of them since becoming an adult.
Because of the conditions of my US visa, I had to go to Australia several times a year when I worked on cruise ships. (The ships had to pay for it).
These forced flights would bring me back to my hometown and made me vacation where I had grown up.
My nights were spent under the sheets I had hidden under as a child.
These days I have to pay for my flights (boo), but I get a larger variety of destination options since I’m paying the bill.
No-matter where I’m going though, I tend to take work away with me.
Yes, no matter where I vacation; if I have hands free — those hands start to work.
Even if I’m lying on a banana chair, watching the sunset by the pool I will literally reach underneath my chair for my laptop, and get to work.
Hands free = work being done
And its a bad thing, because this vacation cost a lot of money, and I’m wasting my money by doing this.
My boss isn’t paying me, and I’m not getting my money’s worth de-stressing.
The entire reason I shelled out all this money for the vacation was because of how stressed I was.
My stress is raising my blood pressure and lowering my life expectancy. I take vacations to remedy this problem, and I’m wasting it!
That’s when I turn to video games.
Hands filled = work being ignored
I find it difficult to play video games for long lengths of time, but if I break it up with walks and coffees I can do it.
I bought a Nintendo Switch to help me on my quest for longer life. Nintendo is the best choice because its bright, colourful, and friendly to less talented gamers.
