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.
I'd have to actually have a job like that to be able to answer the
question. I went from having one foot in an engineer job and
the other in a tech wrier job to having one in a tech writer job
and the other in management. The only jobs I've ever had
where my OTJ duties were limited to writing were 1099
contracts (and when you're self-employed you're still doing
more than one job). So I really couldn't say if I'd be "happy"
doing the "simple job" of tech writing or if it would just
become boring after a while.
