>(1) Are 10- to 12-hour work days the rule rather than the exception?

In my experience, that's more a matter of personal style than a requirement.
I choose not to work more than 8 hours a day, and to budget my time so
that I get things done within that time. I have also learned to say no and
to negotiate for more time when that is necessary.

>(3) My employment background is as an editor in the environmental

It sounds to me like you have a good foundation for getting into tech
writing. Not all tech writing is focused on computers. Your experience
as an editor will be invaluable wherever you go, and if you're interested
in learning, you're heading in the right direction.
