    Has a fictional character or story impacted your (or someone else's you know) choice of career?

    Strong stories and characters leave their mark on many minds. Sometimes they impact the important decisions we make in our life. Do you know someone whose career choice was impacted by a fictional story or character? What do you think about it, was it rather silly - or the inspiration was all the guidance s/he needed?

    Let's see... After reading Cryptid Hunters I wanted to become a cryptozoologist for about two years. Then just stories in general have inspired me to write and share my own stories with the world.

      Wow... seems like you could start a column/series "Inspiring Stories" with an account of what exactly inspired you in story, and how that inspiration got channelized finally smile

    Well, I wouldn't say my career choice was impacted as much by the character to a series as i would say it was by what I found in the series. It was a game called Ratchet and Clank: Going commando. I learned about a secret place called The Insomniac Museum. When I discovered it for myself and explored the place, I was guided through tons of different things that were and weren't put into the game, and I toyed around with the values in puzzles, created my own particle effects, and tested out the main protagonist's movement and actions. All of this is what made me want to go in to the video game industry and become a game designer

    It might sound odd, but a video game was instrumental in my path as a writer. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time sort of organized everything for me. It solidified a love of epic journeys and narrowed my focus to the fantasy genre. There would be other games later that would similarly inspire me to write stories (KOTOR and Eternal Darkness) but that one Zelda game remains the cornerstone of countless ideas and inspiration. It's odd to think that a video game inspired writing, if only because they tend to make terrible movies, but for anyone who is willing to look, the gaming industry is full of heartfelt and memorable narratives.

    The television show "The Waltons" had a great impact on my thinking.  Especially how John Boy writes, dreams, writes some more and with the struggles of the great depression causing many road blocks he manages to not only have his own newspaper at home, but write articles in famous war publications like The Stars and Stripes in his military career. This character inspires me to write.
