Subject:re The Sub Shop Guy From:Mark Levinson <MarkL -at- gilian -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Sun, 4 Feb 2001 12:00:36 +0200
I've been performing and supervising technical writing for more than
twenty years, and I've been the least appreciated when I worked
the hardest. I don't know whether it's because when the management
doesn't appreciate the writer, the management tends to assign a
lot of work on the assumption that it's easy; or perhaps
because by doing a lot of high-quality work in a short time, I
lead the management to assume that the work is easy and therefore
not deserving of much appreciation; or simply because when I am
working very hard I am not as cheerful, forgiving, and mellow as
when I have plenty of time to spare.
I think that to the degree that the sub shop guy is working for
himself, rather than for a bureaucracy, there's a difference in
the dynamic of labor and reward.
