Minecraft: Can it be used for writers?

Hello again. I want to go back to a subject that I addressed on here some time ago, and that is video games, or more in particularly a game that I’m sort of obsessed with, and that is Minecraft. Minecraft was first started back in 2009 and has most recently been making a comeback.

Minecraft is a pixel came where you build things using squares and everything is squares in this game. There are three ways to play the game: survival, creative and adventure mode. My favorite of these three ways is creative mode, because you just get to create without having to forage for things and mining for dirt, minerals and such.

The reason, why I’m talking about this game is that as writers we enjoy the process of creating, and that is essentially what you can do in the game. While you can’t necessarily write as you play, but I have found that while creating my house, my farm, and such that my mind is being engaged in ways that never knew that a game could do.

If you haven’t had an interest in playing, I suggest before you knock it down, give it a try and see what things you feel inspired to create. If you need inspiration, try looking at all the different videos on YouTube that is on the subject.

So while Minecraft may not be for fully writing out stories, but in other ways it can help you create and may even help you achieve that look that you want for a building. But instead of looking up a picture and going off of that for inspiration, you built the inspiration yourself.

Minecraft is available on PC, XBOX, Playstation and the Nintendo Switch.

Minecraft nor any of its creators endorsed this post.

I hope that you have enjoyed finding a new tool that can help you with your writing today.

Thank you again and I hope that you have a happy writing day! Happy writing and happy creating.
