Hello, all,

If someone ever invites me to a costume party, I'd like to go as a famous,
fictional technical communicator. I know you may be thinking, "He even
daydreams about technical writing--how weird," or "A technical writer who
has time to daydream--how weird." ;-)

I can think of a few journalists and ficiton writers in literature (the
main character in Misery, for example), but I can't think of any technical
communicator characters. Well, maybe one: Dr. Watson, Sherlock Holmes'
cohort. The idea of Watson as a tech writer is a little flimsy, though.

Any ideas?

Marc.

"Working conditions within a technical writing section are usually quite
pleasant. There is little pressure except during infrequent deadline
periods."
