Hello. It has been two years since I visited this list. After reading
a few of the digests from the Index, I'm very interested in the
discussions I've read.

I'm a writer. I'm not a Technical Writer, but more along the lines
of magazine and fiction writer. Question: Can the previously mentioned
function in a world of the Technical Writer as long as he/she has the
correct training? Is the creative individual facing self-destruction?
A nervous breakdown? Perhaps total humiliation?

I have spoken to a Technical Writer some months ago, and sensed that
one should be " mechanically inclined " in some way. Would the rest
of you agree?

Thanks for your suggestions.
