I am not ashamed to confess that I like online games. Way before I turned to blogging and Twitter for online fun, I loved playing online games. I know, I know as a writer my ideal goal to reach would be to lock myself in a windowless room with no electronics hammering out my weekly bestseller via the typewriter while someone feeds be through a tube, but we all know that that isn't possible.
I am online most of my day and in between looking for jobs, checking out what you guys are doing, and looking for job and working my story (mornings are the best for this), I love playing online games. It's my favorite "play time for me" thing to do. When I first started playing online games (pre-blogging), I have to tell you - my mom told me about them. I have no idea why but I had never thought of going online to play games. She introduced me to a couple that she enjoyed and BOOM. It captured me.
I recently discovered Pogo.com and I do love that site (by the way, my user name is "writeronthestorm" if you want to come by and say hi!). First, you can win prizes. Second, they have a wonderful iPhone app which you must try (easy, free). Third, their games are simple, fun, not overly addicting (which is good in my book because I do not want to get enthralled in a three hour game when I have job searching/ and writing to do). And finally, I love these games because I like to think they're increasing my quick thinking skills, and critical thinking skills.
The game I am telling you about today is called, Poppit, and...seriously awesome. It's quick first of all. And it's got pretty colors (hey, I"m easily pleased). Aannd best of all there is an iPhone app for it. So in between reading my e-books, writing notes for my future "locked-in-a-windowless-room" bestseller, I can play this really fun game. Trust me, you must try Poppit. It's cute. Adorable (there are tiny fuzzy stuffed animal looking things involved).
And guess what??
