Melissa:

Actually, I was not necessarily rying to make a point. I was trying
to give myself some kind of benchmark. Since I am fairly new to the
technical writing field, I wanted to know if the amount of projects I
am trying to juggle is comparable to what other competent writers are
able to accommodate. I know this can be a highly individual thing,
but I was hoping to average the responses.

The benchmark will give me some kind of idea if I should find better
and more efficient ways to speed up...not that I won't try to do this
anyway. It gives me a goal to work toward and acquire the qualities
and characteristics that are portrayed in all of the seemingly
competent writers communicating on this list.

If there has to be a point, I suppose it is to find out how I'm doing
and figure out a way to improve.

Thanks!!

> I'm wondering how many projects of varying sizes do some of you
feel one person can work on and do an adequate job, not necessarily
prize-winning. Let's assume that you will work 40 - 50 hours a
week.--Barbara Ridley

For me, it depends on how long I'm given to complete the projects. If I'm
juggling a dozen medium-sized projects, but I have three years to do them, that
works just fine.

Or am I missing the point?
