The author's bio states "My goal is to help beginners and show them that technical writing may be easy."

It made me pause and ask myself if I think technical writing is 'easy'?

I do.

I like to write.

I like techie stuff.

My career has been a combining those two interests into a way to provide food, shelter, and an education (I have 2 kids in college).

There have been days when I have stared at a blank screen, unsure of where to start. There have been days when I struggled with to understand a new tool or technology to do what I wanted it to do.

However, when I think about my career thus far, I do enjoy what I do and because I enjoy it, I do think it is easy. That easiness is the output of many years of doing similar tasks for over 20 years. It is why I plan to finish my 'work' career as a technical writer in 6514 days, which is when I reach my target of reaching 20 years of service at my current employer.

Happy Friday and have a safe Memorial Day weekend!
