creative writing project code name:-
on the remarkable MineTest 5.4.1
The 1st in-game, 3D creative writing project, written by human souls, for human souls. Non-souled Chat-Bots are not welcome!
In Spring, 2023, if you had referred to a search on Youtube, then, you would not have found any prose, poetry or short stories actually published *within* a 3D blocky map / realm / world. Ways Of Word on MineTest aims to change that, where gamers freely contribute their original work online via screenshots from their single-player download of - Ways Of Word. Merely SCAN the .ZIP, then creatively write within the game!
NB. The game must be played on a 64 bit system and not a 32 bit system. Although, said system can be as low, in specs, as a Pentium Dual-core with 4 GB of RAM, for example, and in other words, a system which is, at least, 12 years old.
PS. Please be aware that the game naturally hangs as it loads, maybe up to +/- 4mins. This is normal for such PCs and that, also, the game is a large mega-build.
Aside from taking the immense length of time to build the creative space for the prose, poetry and short stories, I have also injected my own creative words. Some of this prose is flippant. However, a portion of this writing is serious, and therefore the project is particularly for young adults, or individuals aged 13+ years. I do not intend the game to be played by young children. I would foresee little harm in young children playing the game, yet the target audience should, very much, be more mature minded people who wish to extend their creative writing skills.
I am Mickey McNeill. Some know me as Mike McNeill, but my lad created an online gaming name for me - NacKKraft. He created this name when he was a very young crafter. I use this handle in relation to my Ways Of Word, MineTest creation and also on other gaming platforms like MineCraft, where my handle is the variant - NackKraftGeezer.
For me you are a writer, whether you have yet thought of yourself as being one or not.
As someone who knows a little about writing and performing songs and approaching poetic thoughts, through my discussions with people about singing and writing, I have learnt that the vast majority of humans have a creative depth within them that they can open, often to their own great surprise. These conversations have been with very ordinary people. I have had such chats with my adult students as an English Coach & Educator around Vienna, and I have always been delighted to recognise other people's creative expressions in word. The ways of word very much emanate from the ordinary, I feel. You should not have to dig into your being to find a word of expressive creativity. These words are already there, you just have to stop and quieten your mind to hear the inner creativity which is humanly yours.
Do not listen to the inner chatter of, "Oh, what are you trying to do? You have never written anything that you weren't told to write!"
These voices are irrelevant. I promise you - you are a writer. Fact!
You can download, at no charge, this simple .ZIP file. Admittedly, it surely is a large .ZIP file. That is true. Yet it holds a complete game within it. A game that has all the presents and mods pre-existing. You do not have to look into any further downloads or add-ons. It is ready to play. Naturally, a person of 13+ years will realise that they *must* enable the computer system that they use to be free of malware by keeping their anti-virus software updated. A prudent user of this software will also run a scan prior to unpacking the game.
After you successfully download the Ways Of Word .ZIP file, do a pre-unpacking anti-viral scan. This is merely, good "housekeeping", as all .ZIP files should be scanned prior to using them. After scanning, you will find that everything is in good order and that there will be no unwanted files. Then, as Administrator, move this .ZIP file directly into (and only into) the DOCUMENTS folder. Then get 7-zip (for example) to unzip its contents, there, within your documents folder. The folder produced will be called " minetest-5.4.1-win64 ". Then click down into the folder entitled * "bin" *. There you will discover the minetest.exe (executable file). Right click this and manually create a shortcut onto your desktop, for ease of use. Double click this and you will be a / "are a" - go! :)
