I’ve accepted a position on the writing staff at Renderosity.com. Most of you that read this blog know about Renderosity and for those that don’t… it one of the major 3D websites for news, reviews and great 3D assests by leading developers. Ricky Grove has moved up to Managing Editor and I’m taking Ricky’s place doing software, hardware reviews and other articles. I was very surprised to be recruited for the position and very greatful for the opportunity to write once again.
A long time ago in a place far, far away I was an outdoor writer published in regional and national outdoor publications. I’ve written several whitepapers for Reallusion a few years back for their developer center and was fortunate enough to have PACKT Publishing publish my iClone Beginners Guide back in 2011. Since then I’ve had little to no time for writing even though I’ve cut back on my freelance workload to create more time… or at least I tried too but the work keeps coming in and I have a hard time saying no unless I’m just overloaded.
Writing for me… like a lot of others… is therapy, relaxation and fun. So far… even with deadlines… it has never become WORK to me. It has always been a pleasure to sit down to the keyboard and just get after it. Words come easy to me… I’ve never struggled to put them on paper at least not in my adult life. In fact my problem with word limits on a piece is trying to stay under the mark… not struggle to reach it.
Now… if I can just manage to not bore my readers I’ll be a happy camper. In fact… I’ll be happy if I HAVE readers as each and everyone is greatly appreciated. To those that visit this infrequently published blog… I thank you and invite you to join me over at Renderosity.
My first assignment is putting a Lenovo workstation through it’s paces. Going to load that puppy up with 3D apps like Max, Vue, zBrush and others. My test will be my daily work using it crunching buildings, blowing up aliens or other such “work”.
Hey… someone has to do it.
