Here is the fifth blog post in a series featuring videos on YouTube, where I read a paragraph from one of my motivational books and use it as a prompt to speak freely.
This idea was inspired by the free-writing exercise well-known among writers. I used dice and timer to turn this free-speaking exercise into fun games. I hope you enjoy watching them and maybe trying out this gameful approach for yourself and tasks you want or need to tackle today.
In this video, I read from Gameful Healing: Almost a Memoir; Not Quite a Parable (Book 2 in Gameful Life series).
I am reading a paragraph from chapter “20. Fun.”
Here it is if you want to read along, prior, or afterward.
The prompting paragraph from Gameful Healing
After exploring its various meanings while formulating and describing Self-Gamification, here is what I believe fun is. Fun equals full, wholehearted, and rewarding engagement.
