To hear some people say it, one of the reasons that you all keep coming back to Harem Collector is that I’m actually pretty good at writing characters and making engaging dialogue. I am very happy that people feel this way, and I’m glad to entertain. I don’t really feel like I’m an expert at all, though. I haven’t really finished any big artistic projects except for My Isekai Life in D&D Book One. While the end is in sight for Harem Collector, it’s still not complete, so I really don’t think I can call myself very accomplished as a writer.
Still, sometimes people ask me how they can write better. I honestly don’t really know what to say a lot of the time. I barely know what I’m doing at the best of times. But one thing that I’m pretty sure has positively affected my writing is playing roleplaying games. Like, actual, in person tabletop RPGs. It’s almost a way of gamifying writing- by putting yourself in another character’s shoes, learning to comprehend another person’s challenges, you learn how your characters act and behave and how to portray that whether you’re roleplaying, writing, or designing a game.
So that’s it, that’s the advice- to improve at writing play more RPGs. Pay attention to what your characters’ needs and wants would be. Push yourself to make characters who consider things that you think are silly to be important, like codes or honour or religious taboos. Also, avoid just outright goofiness- I understand that comedy RPG campaigns are in vogue because they make for better podcast material but they don’t generally push you as a writer, in my experience.
So yeah. Give it a shot, and I hope that helps some aspiring writers or game designers out there!
