Sherri,

I think the answer to your questions is right there in your own post...
"That's what they *want* to pay experienced people..." What they *want* to
pay and what they'll have to pay to attract experienced writers are two
different things. Then you went on to state, "Thankfully, I'm making more
than that..."--as are most self-respecting, experienced, competent tech
writers.

I'm in Houston, and my first reaction was also $20-25/hr.

Really? For inexperienced? I'm not seeing that on the web sites offering
jobs in the DFW area. That's what they want to pay experienced people with
all the software skills. Thankfully, I'm making more than that, but
unfortunately I'm getting behind on the software skills because of where I
work.

A lot will depend on the area of the country. In the Dallas/Fort Worth area,
a more realistic figure would be $20- -at- 5/hour.
