You may or may not know it, but Tor is also a leading publisher of fantasy novels. In fact, I did not even know about the online magazine.
My hobbies include, but or not necessarily limited to: reading, Wheel of Time, mythology, Wheel of Time, writing, Wheel of Time, music, Wheel of Time, breaking curves on tests at school, Wheel of Time, learning about history, Wheel of Time, being a nerd, Wheel of Time, lurking/posting on 'Net forums, Wheel of Time, and just generally being ridiculously awesome. I'm sure you guys can agree on that last one.
Oh, and I like Wheel of Time. I don't know if I mentioned that one yet.
@Dorano: How much time are you willing to put in to learning the skills required for developing games? If you just have a nifty idea, and want to slap something together for fun, then Gamemaker, as Jessica B. suggested (welcome to the forum Jessica, by the way), is a fantastic piece of software to use. If, however, you are seriously considering game development as a career possibility, as I am, then I would recommend putting the time into learning a programming language. Yes, many of them are daunting to start with, but there are a few things you can do to ease the pain. First, BlitzBasic (and, more currently, BlitzMax) is a pretty powerful language built from the ground up for game programming. There is a fantastic book, Game Programming for Teens, 3rd Edition by Maneesh Sethi, that can teach you this language. Java is the single most used programming language on the planet. It is especially good for web-based applications, such as in-browser PC games. It can also be used to create applications for Android phones, which are ridiculously popular. Java is tougher as a first language than Blitz, but is probably better. The best book for teaching Java that I can think of off the top of my head is probably SAMS Teach Yourself Java in 24 Hours (or alternatively, SAMS Teach Yourself Java 6 in 21 Days). It is an absolutely fantastic introductory book, written in a very conversational style that makes reading a lot easier. Head First Java is also good. If you do decide to learn programming, remember that whatever language you learn, after the first one, it becomes much easier to learn others.
P.S.: I love the Wheel of Time series of novels by Robert Jordan. They rox my sox.
