My theory on doing a fabulous job as a tech writer (among other things): at
my most competent, I am invisible. That is to say, *bad* tech writing is
pretty much the only variety that gets noticed. You don't have to like it.
You just have to find a way to accept it. Or find something else to do.

Just my 2 cents...
