It's an opinion based on taking a C course at the age of 44 without taking
the prereqs and without having had math (which was college algebra) since I
was 19. I won't say it was easy, but I survived the class, and the
experience has been invaluable. I've only been a tech writer for less than
two years--before that I was a linguist. So I haven't even had that much
passive exposure to computers and to programming thought.

I think believing that writers *can't* learn to program does them a gross
