Mark Schmidt's Abode On programming, writing, gaming and life...

Awhile ago, I hinted in the comments section of my MS interview rejection post that I had a secret.  Well, it's official.  Apparently I didn't scare MS away too badly.  I am now going up for yet another interview (yes, I am a sucker for pain) for a Programmer Writer position.  For those unfamiliar with Programmer Writers (and I am still a little unsure), they are basically developer's that write sample code and then create an article for it, as well as other writing related tasks.  A good example is MSDN and the plethora of articles, samples, whitepapers, etc...  Most of those were created by Programmer Writers.

To my credit, I do have several magazine articles and 2 books that I've written, so the writing experience is there.  I have also written about 10 or so screenplays for short little videos that I directed/acted/produced.  So, here we go again.  Let's hope the experience is a little better physically (I was extrememly exhausted during the last person of the last interview).
