A grad student in technical writing (Gretchen) asked me some questions for
an assignment and needs a response sometime this evening. I don't have time,
but I thought someone on this list might want to respond. You can either
respond in writing or by phone.

Here are the questions:

1. What steps do you take when writing a document?

2. How do time and budget limitations affect your writing?

3. How much time do you spend writing?

4. How and when do you revise and edit documents?

5. How did you acquire the skills you use for your job? Did you take classes
or have on-the-job training, etc.?

6. What steps did you take to get to the position you are in now?

You can email her at gretchen -dot- hollis -at- att -dot- net or call 817.889.2907.
(She gave me permission to forward the info.)
