Tech writing?

Hmm, technical writing. It's been a thought in the back of my head since, oh, maybe....junior year of high school, so I thought it was about time to talk to a real live tech writer.

Turns out, the extremely helpful woman that I talked to does a lot of editing and less writing than I thought. Her job is more about organization, the flow of papers, and helping them meet their final destination. She also does some editing and a lot of reviewing changes to manuscripts.

Oddly enough, this sounds strangely fun.

I'll keep you, my imaginary audience, posted on more informational interviews to come. I might even do a little shadowing once this portfolio jig is up.

Julie, since I taught tech writing for 5 years, feel free to drop by during my office hours sometime.

imaginary audience? I am certainly not imaginary, am I? ;^)

I can connect you to talk to some more tech writers if you would like.
