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’ve done just enough editing to know it’s not easy. In fact, it is a separate profession, with professional groups, certification, a body of knowledge, and even a non-trivial psychological component. (I’ve been told writers have fragile egos that need soothing and gentle dissuasion.) For writers to comment on the relative ease or difficulty of editing is like programmers to comment on the relative ease or difficulty of writing. (They usually don’t see what the big deal is, right?)
(I know even less about graphic design, and to me it’s not hard; you just draw a few lines and boxes and you’re done, right? Well, maybe not 8^)
