She will also be featuring in the upcoming ABC show How to be a Fan with Hex.
Very insightful and really cool to know more about Hex’s life 🙂
Nice. Hexsteph comes off as very relatable with anecdotes of her growing pains and young adult insecurities. Good Game is worth a lot more than the 14 cents each day I contribute as a taxpayer.
A fascinating insight into Hex’s formative years. I’d never have guessed she’d had such an awkward phase growing up, but the love of fantasy and gaming all makes sense now!
That early part sounds a lot like roleplay writing…..I remember doing a LOT of that my late primary school/early high school years. Including getting up at super early hours so that I didn’t miss out on the typical American timezone players. I’ve always described that as “writing a book with other people” too (or however Hex phrased it) because it’s so hard to explain to those who’ve never done it. After a few years it died pretty suddenly and the game wasn’t the same afterwards but I treasure the writing and characters that came from that dearly…and I had excellent writing skills early on as a result! /late comment
I really enjoyed this and the one with Jeremy Ray! Could you do one with Steven O’Donnell next please Yug? 🙂
