You should come visit my company, then. The trainer that works on my
products and I get along really well and often discuss ideas about
presentation of the material. We divide information up, sometimes, to
make sure the whole spectrum gets covered or gets reinforced if it's
something difficult.

Not all writers are loners.

The support guys for my products tips me off where the documentation
needs to be rewritten or clarified.
