About

Hey there, I’m Andruid.

One day, I realized that I had been writing games, writing for games, and playing writing games since pretty much the dawn of the internet. AOL chat rooms, IRC channels, play-by-post, MU* games, interactive stories, choose your own adventure, text-based tabletop sessions… I’ve spent a lot of time writing and roleplaying online!

More about my background…

Over the many years I’ve been doing this stuff, I have been at times a gamer, community member, contributor, moderator, builder, supporter, creator, coder/developer, and administrator. I have a PhD and a background in both qualitative and quantitative research, and I currently work in the tech industry, where I wear a number of hats that keep me on my toes. In my free time, I enjoy writing, roleplaying, and sharing what I learn, especially in a way that’s accessible and approachable to non-experts.

To that end, this blog is meant to be a resource for creative writers, roleplayers, and gamers of all stripes. I hope you find it useful, and thanks for visiting!

Feel free to email me at andruid@writing-games.com or check out my News page or Ko-fi page to see what I’ve been up to lately.
