Feeling a bit lost in the bewilderness of interactive storytelling? Let me guide you for a bit.

There's never been a better time to explore narrative design but it's not easy to know how to get into the business or where to even start. Having been a freelance scriptwriter, game writer and narrative designer for over 20 years, I can point out a few of the paths I've discovered along the way.

Narrative Design Mentoring and Career Guidance

If, after that first chat, we're happy to keep working together then here are the following steps I recommend we go through.

Step 1. Explore your skill set to identify strengths and areas requiring development.

This will require a couple of sessions to ensure that we get a full picture of where you at. Before these sessions commence, I'd like to read a short portfolio of your work.

Step 2. We'll find training and self-directed learning opportunities for you.

This a lot of information out there, but you've got to know what you're looking for.

Step 3. Look at how you are currently doing business and discuss financial and marketing strategies to help you sustain and grow that business.

Narrative design is a fun way to make money, but it's still a job at the end of the day.

Step 4. Further problem-solving and emotional support as needed. 

It's important to have someone to talk to when times get tough (and they will).
