I found this post very amusing, particularly since I’m at the getting-ready-to-publish end of the author cycle once again. It would be fun to take my kids Life game and change it according to Lucy’s vision, but somehow I think that would be frowned upon. 🙂
One of my favourite board games is ‘The Game of Life’ by Hasbro. You spin the wheel and start down the road of life in your little plastic car, taking exams, getting a job, making money, getting married, having babies, acquiring pets, losing money and going on adventures.
The other day, whilst playing ‘The Game of Life’ with one of my children I had the idea of a ‘Game of Life’board game version for authors.
Nearly everyone nowadays wants to be an author so this unique game would make you feel like an author, without doing the hard bit – writing a book. It could be called ‘The Game of Author Life’.
In the ‘Game of Life’ your plastic car counter has little holes for your husband, wife, children and pets.
In the ‘Game of Author Life’ you would have little holes for your literary agent and your publisher if you decide to go traditional. If you decide to go self published, you would have little holes for your editor and book cover designer.
You would spin the wheel and start down the road towards publication. *Sigh*
