I have been out of the technical writing world since this past February when
my last contract ended. While I have been looking for other TW gigs, I took
advantage of the timing and entered another world by attending culinary
school and working in professional kitchens. Since I do miss the challenges
(and money) of technical writing, I am going full force with a job search.

So now I wonder if I should be filling in the gap of time on my resume since
Feb so employers know that I have not been sleeping all day long or is it
just unnecessary fodder that will be simply extend my resume and annoy those
who perhaps would have otherwise given me a chance?

Thanks for your help with this!
