I have always wanted to work in game design and have no idea how to narrow that down. I'm just looking for my calling and do not know were to start. I have decent math skills and a great amount of creative writing skill, but how do I narrow down what specific field of study I should specialize in. Thanks for your help!

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
Our gamedevelopment courses here in the Netherlands all have an introductory year in which a lot of aspects of gamedevelopment ar taught. After this year, one can choose to specialize in either programming or designing games.
Maybe search for a course like this?
Or you can try and start creating your own simple game. I think you'll quickly find out what you like most.
