Sex, drugs, and wait… who let in the women in games?

Imagine you’re a game writer, and this happened to you.  I noticed that my comic-con panel, “Writing for the Computer Gaming Industry” got written up in the Examiner.com.  Yay on that.  All panelists were listed including a random credit.  Mine was The Witcher.  The writer of the article then proceeded to say, “The Witcher was written by a WOMAN??!!”  I don’t know if he couldn’t believe a woman would write the Witcher because of its sexual content, or if he couldn’t believe that a woman would write something like the Witcher, but I’ll take it as a compliment either way 😉

What’s your take?

Join me at San Diego Comic-Con!

I’m headed down to Comic-Con this fine day and will be attending all 4.5 days.   If you’re there, I’m sure I will pass you about five times as we go about our quests for comics and adventure.  If you actually want to say hello, you can catch me at my panel on Thursday, July 23:

5:30-6:30 Writing for the Computer Gaming Industry— Great storytelling forms the foundation for immersive games that emotionally draw players into a gaming universe. Veteran game writers Neal Hallford (Betrayal at Krondor, Dungeon Siege), Chris Avellone (Knights of the Old Republic, Neverwinter Nights II), Anne Toole (The Witcher), Wynne McLaughlin (Star Wars: The Old Republic, Command & Conquer: Renegade), Haris Orkin (Call of Juarez 2: Bound In Blood), and John Zuur Platten (F.E.A.R 2: Project Origin, Ghostbusters) engage in a lively discussion of their art. Moderated by Jana Hallford (co-author of Swords & Circuitry: A Designer’s Guide to Computer Role-Playing Games). Room 4
