A dream or an image pops into your head. A story perhaps, or maybe just a concept. In the constant grind of school, I often find myself wanted to escape to my own world where anything is possible if I can imagine it. So many people, including myself, have the idea, but not the artistry to create something through traditional methods. But for me, this is where Minecraft comes along. Minecraft is a computer game similar to a sandbox, in that you can create whatever you would like. And if this game does not possess it already, you can code whatever idea comes to mind to implement into the game. If I could earn a living doing this, I would create a collaborative database where people can share their ideas and creations from Minecraft, as well as find others who would like to help design your idea. To make this more than a forum, I would have to set up the website, advertise, and in the end get the creators of Minecraft, Mojang’s support. Beyond that, a final element of the website would include finding opportunities for users to transfer their ideas and stories into real life objects.
