To go into any great detail would require much more time than you really want to spend. Trust me. I am a VP in a game-design corporation, but I also enjoy rolling up my sleeves and doing work that gets my hands dirty. On and off since 1985, I have driven a semi. Sometimes it was to make ends meet, and sometimes because the level of diesel in my bloodstream had gotten too low. Always I enjoyed the experience, and in a perfect world that is what I would always do--simply for the peace that the open road affords.
However, this isn't a perfect world, and you're not here to read about a fat, ugly truck driver who has 3 teeth and a boil on his bum. I assume that you are here to follow the creation of an Online Game, and I will endeavor to keep this blog interesting in all respects. Still, you should know a little about me, regardless. First, I'm not fat, I have my teeth, and any boils on my bum are no business of yours.
I'm a broken down rodeo cowboy. I'm a winner of several writing competitions, as well as a published author and playwrite. I'm a former freelance member of the National Union of Journalists, and as well have held confined-space entry/rescue certification in Louisiana (when I spent a stint cleaning up hazmat spills). I've seen the inside of my own body, fallen off of cliffs, been thrown bodily from moving vehicles, reached enlightenment and then left because they didn't have a mall.
I am married to a beautiful woman who is 6 years my junior (yay, me!)--she's a top-notch cook and the closest friend that I have--and have a 12 year old son who is smarter than me, and knows it. And for the past 5 years, I have been working on the project which I will, from this point forward, be writing about. That's what this blog is about... making the game.
I hope you enjoy this blog, almost as much as I hope I'll enjoy writing it.
