I'm former professional software engineer based in Texas. I love the C# programming language, and actually program leisurely as well.

My add-ons suite for World of WarCraft was quite popular. They have been downloaded a combined 400k times from the two main download sites (WoWInterface.com and Curse.com).

After 13 years working in IT and software development, I found that the field was no longer fun nor interesting to me. I recently quit my job to follow my childhood dream of becoming a novelist.

comment Is it worth switching to Dvorak?
re: the third bullet point (changing key labels). I would advise against using the same keyboard to switch the layout (in software) between the two. The reason for that is muscle memory. I use both AZERTY (French) and QWERTY layouts but I am completely unable to switch from one to the other through software on the same physical keyboard. I have to use a different physical keyboard in order for my brain to also switch. Sometimes I even need to be in a completely different environment (home vs. office).

comment Is a movie script more like a short story or a novel?
To elaborate on "do" vs. "think" in movie scripts, it follows that a script would contain much more detailed descriptions of actions. Those will have an impact on how the actors play their roles.

I'm a programmer and I have a coworker right behind me who hunts and pecks.

comment How to write great movie review?
Whatever you do, don't confuse movie review with movie summary. I'm only saying this because I've seen way too many amateur movie critics you couldn't tell the difference.
