I first started programming in 1983 (read about my programming history here). I don’t remember what I programmed on the Ti-99/4a, but I do remember one of my first programs on the VIC-20 was flying birds program, straight from the book that came with it:It wasn’t long after that when I started making games. Sadly, none of them have survived my various moves across the country, however my friends still remember playing the games that I made – they were pretty fun for the time.

I have been watching struggling writers and struggling mobile app developers for a few years, and it seems to me that there is a lot in common between them.
Growing up (yes, decades ago now) I knew some people who called themselves writers. I somehow did not connect those people with the mainstream published authors who wrote the books I was reading on a daily basis.
