Interview with Michelle Lyons

Posted on November 24, 2004 by

When asked about the difference between writing and editing within the industry in this interview, Michelle Lyons stated:

Editing for a game is… nitpicky. When you’re writing, you have to get ideas down and make sure the core creative push behind the work is solid. You want to get the mechanical end right as well, but you have to make sure the creative foundation is solid. As an editor, you have to make sure the rest of the construction is to code, basically. You have to make sure rules are stated clearly (and mesh with the rest of the system), you have to make sure that presentation is consistent, you have to make sure all the numbers add up, and on top of that, you have to make sure that the text is solid in style and execution, accessible to the reader, and preferably not something the author won’t recognize or wince at when he or she looks at the final book.

From learning about Michelle’s first experiences in the gaming industry, to reading about her thoughts on where the industry is headed, read this in-depth interview for writer, editor, and game designer Michelle Lyons.
