Write, edit, code, draw, prototype, illustrate, design, architect, test,
market, sell, integrate, administer, manage. -- Some subset of these verbs
is really useful for numerous tech writing roles. The exact choice of verbs
varies by role. But what is certain is that the first two verbs, while very
important, can only get you so far, and most technical writers have to do
more than those two.
