I suppose it’s obvious, but it’s starting to get easier to avoid thinking about video games now, but there are still moments when I want to play. I had some spare time today that would have been dead useful for clearing a few levels of Gears of War, but I spent the time instead watching Doctor Who (my other addiction…I get a joyful upwelling in my spirit when I hear the theme tune starting up!)
So yesterday’s challenge was a two-parter, so you don’t get to see the full results until I finish today’s half of it. The challenge was thus: “Your children don’t have any of your writing that is purely theirs, so you are to write a short book in the form of Dr Seuss.” I’ve written the text of the story, and it’s not long at all. I’m going to be illustrating it tonight.
Off the topic of the challenges and onto the “gaming addiction” part of it, some experts are of the opinion that video game addiction shouldn’t be treated as an addiction, but rather as a symptom of something deeper, such as depression or an inferiority complex. I suppose in some cases, this may be so, but I think the problem a little too widespread to be attributed that way. What thinks you?
