Learn a Little, Write a Little, Have a Lot of Fun: Interning at GameSkinny

Game and write all day long, sweet Susie.

Well, it has been a mildly wild ride as a GameSkinny intern; the internship wasn’t wild seeing as it’s from a sedentary seated position, but just working around life to get everything done was. It was totally worth it though. Writing is a passion of mine and writing about games has been a blast. So, if you’re considering it, just do it.

The Best of Times, and the Busiest of Times

 As a vocal performance major in the last few weeks of the semester, things were chaotic. Performances, nightly rehearsals, cramming for tests…it was a bad time. I made it work for the most part; I couldn’t hang out on Skype constantly, but I lugged my laptop everywhere so I could write between classes, which worked out really well. When it came to moving day, everything and its mother collided during that particular time, so life took the front seat. And Katy, head of the internship, was awesome and understanding.

Through this, I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with some indie developers and felt like a champion of indie games. I see them, love them, and want them to succeed. They may not sport the budgets, but they make some incredible works of art that deserve to be seen. So that’s what I’ve discovered to be my passion through this internship. Not to mention, you meet some talented writers among your team.

Not for Bubble-Blowing Babies

I don’t recommend this to people who can’t manage their time even remotely well. Honestly, with the little amount of time I had earlier on, it was a treat to write and take a break from Song Literature hell. Granted, the original format of the internship was a bit stressful, requiring two to three articles each day, but I feel like it’s become more manageable and streamlined. Also, if you find writing every day to be a chore, then don’t do this.

I do recommend this to people who enjoy gaming and are aware that there’s always something to write about, new or old. It’s great experience to put on your resume and you can potentially get class credit for it too. So really, there’s no reason not to do it if you have skills, time, and love gaming.
