TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Sometimes setting expectations about time frames of delivery and review
helps a lot. We usually have a kickoff meeting in which we set up potential
review times for our clients, so they can fit the review time in. At that
time, we can give them and idea of how many pages they'll need to review.
That said, Bonnie, we get different responses, some like the one you got, or
others. There is a certain amount of "darned if you do, darned if you don't"
in our work. We pay attention to what's being said and we evaluate whether
we've been flexible and responsive. If the work is good, we accommodated the
needs of the client, and we're still getting the "backhanded compliment" I
guess we're just happy it's a compliment. :)
