Yep, in Toronto, 1989. I was completing an accounts payable manual (mainframe app). I worked mostly alone for 10.5 years; took a contract and joined a team (at Nortel); wasn't as interesting, since the projects and my tasks on them were limited to updating. Now I'm back as a lone writer and just spent last evening and today listening to a project team and working on a presentation to executives for our first US project.

Fun stuff!

Has anyone on this list been the lone writer on their
*very first* job (i.e. working in-house) or project?
If you had to do it again, would you still plunge in
or would you wait for a gig that put you in the
company of other more experienced writers?
