Thanks for the many responses to the question I posed about the varieties of
technical writing experience. When I saw some of the responses, I realized
that my attempt at comedy in describing an information interview at an STC
meeting fell flat. The person who asked me just exactly what kind of tech
writing I wanted to do was actually quite helpful, and we went on to have a
good conversation. I'll just hope my literary license doesn't get pulled. :-)
I wouldn't want to discourage anyone interested in tech writing from
contacting or joining the STC (stc -at- tmn -dot- com)--along with this list, it's one
of the best information sources on tech writing there is.
