There's a new DIALOGUE WRITING GIG in town -- the Role Playing Game in video format.
Mass Effect is an example that's become very famous.

Think about making a living as a writer. Here is a market -- ok, it's going to be a "work made for hire" gig, meaning you get paid a certain amount, and that's it, just like journalism. You no longer have any control over how your work is used. It's just what you do for a living, and you don't own the resulting product, your employer does.
But it's another application of the skill sets we are studying on this blog, and markets for those skills are proliferating.
Now imagine an RPG with a ROMANCE twist that plays on your mobile, iPad, iPhone, smartphone -- it's in your pocket like an e-book.
Could you write the dialogue?
The best dialogue writers I've ever run into trained in a) journalism and b) work-made-for-hire fiction markets. (or both).
