I’m an entry-level writer in game development working with my first studio on a mobile project.

Client: I’m putting in an order for some concept art, so I’d like you to write up some descriptions of the character I need.

Me: Okay, sure thing.  Where are the specifications, on our online server?

Client: They’re in your head!  Let’s just see what you come up with.

Me: …Okay.

I’m not a character designer, but I’m here to learn, so I figure I’ll stretch myself a little and see what I can come up with.

Me:  Here’s a detailed description of the specific visual elements I’m thinking of and why I think that will work for our target audience.  Let me know if I’ve missed anything.

The client said “thanks!” and then I didn’t hear anything back for a few days. Finally, they made their decision.

Client: So we really love your thoughts, and we’ll definitely use them in the game later, but for right now we decided to go with [exactly the same thing I described, but attributed to someone else].
