This is some of the best advice I've seen on this board. Unfortunately, many
companies hand you a contract, give you 15 minutes, and expect to see pages
coming off the printer. I was handed a $250,000 government contract one
afternoon and criticized the next morning before 10 a.m. for not having
writers working on it. Hell, I was still trying to decipher the 100 page
government contract. But truly, and unfortunately, most writers start the
activity before they know what they should be doing.
