If you are a game developer, or are going to be one, you will need to do a lot of writing on the job. Take this advice to heart:

Really want to impress someone with your words? Then either 1) be direct/clear or 2) shut up. Anyone worth impressing will respect you for saying less a lot more than they’ll respect you for using big words that don’t actually say anything.

(That’s also key to networking: there are people out there who are worth impressing, and they will not be impressed with your stupid networking tricks. You have to be an exceptional human being beneath whatever veneer you have.)
