Sorry, but you're still missing the boat. Unless you invented the product
yourself AND invented the technologies used to create that product, you
have no right to call yourself a technical writer. Wimp.

It would probably also be helpful to invent the language you write in,
particularly if you ever want to be a SENIOR technical writer.
