Nope. Not me! You know why? Because I *know* my art is not of the quality that
a skilled technical illustrator can produce. However, most of the time it is
considered "good enough." Scary concept, huh?

My audience (broadcast studio technicians) can't really tell if a tech writer
or a tech illustrator drew those circles, squares, lines, arrows and callouts.
Nor do they care. These drawings just have to be understandable and accurate.

Yeah, I know what your are thinking. It took me a long time to accept my own
art as "good enough." What can I say? "It's the way it is because it's
the way it is." BTW, punctuation (the period) should be inside the quotes.
