Yesterday I followed some link somewhere & came to a site
promising to turn anyone into a tech writer (just buy the book):

"If you are creative, with an orderly mind, and can write
clear, concise instructions, then you can be a technical
writer - simple as that! This book will show you, step by
step, how to turn your talents into a rewarding and highly
lucrative writing career! "

What is scary to me is that this person is targeting English
majors: "Are you a creative and talented writer who just
can't seem to make a living [yet!] purely from writing?"

For some reason, to me, "creative writer" and "technical
writer" just don't seem to mesh well.

My 2 cents
