The Stray Sheep #17 – One Game and Literature Editing

So, today was quite the busy day for me, so I couldn’t write down my impressions nor work on another review nor the interview. Hence, I’m talking about the following question:

If you had to chose one game to play for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

Well, for me it’d be Stardew Valley, I guess. There’s always so much to try out right now, so many levels to grind, so many ways to play the game and no hurry as you can re-evalutate your farm. To be honest, I should play it more.

Apart from that I thought I’d talk about my work at the editorial team of our uni-magazine. It was quite a lot of fun but really exhausting, too.
Basically there was a set topic and people would send in poems, peotry slams, prose and other stuff that we then had to read. We received about 351 pages from 58 authors in total! Quite a lot!

Yesterday, we then had to vote which is going to make it into the magazine and which is not. There were writings that didn’t fit in at all, sometimes the quality wasn’t okay either, some stuff was awesome! Like hella rad! Some other stuff wasn’t okay because of certain metaphors used that we just can’t publish in this way. All in all, it was a nice experience to see how this stuff plays out. Now and then, we even argued about some authors and their works and if we should have them in the magazine. Literature can be quite lively and really exciting, even though some may find poems and the like quite boring.

This post felt kind of half-hearted, so I ended up editing it, post tempore (afterwards). I hope you don’t mind having it talk about two different topics and seeing a better version now. As for the final GamesCom-articles: They’re still in progress. But more about that soon!

Anyways,

Keep your ears stiff!

This post is part of a contest/challenge called Blaugust! The goal is to post as much as possible and participants are awarded with different prizes depending on the goal they achieved. My aim is to post on all 31 days of August and if you’d like to know more about this “event”, you should check this post out.
