Introductions & Origins
Ways Of Word - Riverbank - Be Part Of The Story - Built for enchanting tales and prose and ancient computer systems!
Ways of Word on Legacy MineTest 5.4.1 is the first in-game publishing concept online. It is a Single-Player blocky-game environment. This means that the player explores the gaming realm, created by Mickey McNeill, in Vienna, and engages with it to express themselves in creative verse. These items of prose or poetry or short stories are placed within the in-game computer consoles or directly upon placard signs which are populated across the whole gaming fantasy realm. The aim of the player is to write such works and then take screenshots of their work and then share these screenshots on their chosen online platform. Links to potential sharing platforms can be found in the links section on this page. Creative works can also be shared via email. Please note, if members or contributors engage with this website or write creative works, this data and their work remains their property, completely! If one shares one's creative prose one should retain a private copy of this work, in picture, and ideally, in word for your personal records, and only share these works voluntarily, via one's own free-will. The concept of Ways Of Word operates entirely on the basis of free-will. At no time should contributors steal the creative works of others while attempting to suggest that such work is their own work. Please only share that which you so wish to share, openly. Lastly, a caution for buddying professional authors. If you share your work online here, or in connection with any other online creative writing platforms, note that professional publishers may see that such exposer means that this work has been published.

Ways of Word on Legacy MineTest 5.4.1 grew out of lived experience. Like so much creative writing, people across time have been driven to express themselves during times of confusion and stress. This creator's family was twice flushed out of their safe family home due to the horrors of a very badly supervised attic building project which frequently flooded the dwelling. We survived these horrors by making do, as one does. However, how does one sleep at night with the stress? Ways Of Word came to the rescue. In building Ways Of Word and implanting creative prose within this creative 3D blocky environment, some peace of mind was found, particularly at night. When one revisits this world, in your mind's eye, and recalls the beautiful vistas and bizarre creations within this world, which extends from great heights to great depths, one is taken out of one's miseries and far away into a safe creative space.
