How to Become a Metaverse Writer: Notes for an Essay


I have determined to become a metaverse writer. I don't know what a metaverse writer is exactly, but I do have a plan to become one. It will involve

  1. Understanding video games, AR/VR/MR/XR, and blockchain technology

  2. Learning new storytelling paradigms, borrowing from immersive theater, escape rooms, game writing, improv theater, music, and more.

That's a lot to learn, but I do already know a lot about some things that I think will be useful in the metaverse:

  1. Screenwriting, playwriting, and filmmaking

  2. Music and composition

  3. Content marketing and digital communities

  4. Design thinking and narrative thinking skills

I will document my daily or near-daily progress here and elsewhere on this blog. Updates will appear directly beneath this text. Older posts will be pushed ever downward. At a certain point, all posts will be repurposed into a long-form essay. If you'd prefer, you can follow along with the same content on Mirror.xyz.
